Keys n Krates

Some music for your weekend! Keys N Krates, if you don’t already know you better get familiar! Picture The Roots, but Black Thought has been replaced by an ITF world champion DJ. Here they are absolutely killing Toronto earlier this year.

Jr Flo (the krates) and Matisse (the keys) are rockin parties the way they were meant to be rocked! Remixes with live drums, bass, and keys! It doesn’t get any better than this. They blew several thousand minds at the Livestock BBQ here in Vancouver in September.

Support these guys and do yourself a favour and catch them live when they hit your city.
