About KAYTRANADA
Born in Haiti and raised in the city of Montreal, Canadian artist Kaytranada has experienced an explosive rise in the past couple of years with his irresistible production and live sets, but the hard work and success did not happen over night. In 2014, Announcing via his Facebook page, KAYTRANADA signed an exclusive recording agreement with XL Recordings, the historic London based record label. His long-awaited debut album, 99.9%, was released on May 6, 2016 with an overwhelming positive response. The album includes features from GoldLink, AlunaGeorge, Syd, Anderson .Paak and Vic Mensa among others. "Glowed Up ft. Anderson .Paak" was named Best New Music by Pitchfork when it was released as the album's 3rd single, along with a stunning music video. The album's second music video for "Lite Spots" was nominated for a 2016 Much Music Video award, and recently won the 2017 Prism Prize Award.
