Keys N Krates
The Toronto-based trio – comprised of the high-energy Adam Tune on drums, synth-master David Matisse on keys, and internationally award-winning Jr. Flo on turntables – began by locking themselves in a rehearsal room for six months to create and finesse their unique sound and identity.
The result? A blend of trap, hip hop and improvisation that truly shows off the artistry of the live remix. Keys N Krates collage raw samples and twist them with live instrumentation, creating a unique party sound. KNK blends clever sample collaging, epic synths, big bass, and funky drum grooves into a sonically unified collection of songs.
KNK has been featured in such publications as URB, Fader, and Antenna magazine. They have toured with and played alongside artists including Pretty Lights, Lotus, Skrillex, Girl Talk, Kid Cudi, Metric, Timbaland, Zed's Dead and more. In 2011/12, the band broke out on the festival scene, playing Ultra Music Festival, Camp Bisco, Electric Forest, North Coast, Moe's Summer Camp, Re-Generation and Blues Fest. After producing distinctive remixes of songs by artists such as MGMT, Jay Z, Bassnectar, Diplo, Drake, and Florence + The Machine, Keys N Krates were commissioned to create official remixes for Lotus, Lyrics Born, and OK GO.
To really grasp what Tune, Matisse and Jr. Flo bring to the stage, you have to see it up close. Their shows are filled with high-energy sets that are made to be witnessed live. The guys continue to craft and grow their sound and style, exposing audiences worldwide to the Keys N Krates experience.
Clicks & Whistles
Clicks & Whistles have been carving out a unique sound blending Southern Rap, Juke, and elements of Drum & Bass since their first official release in August 2010. The Charlotte based duo is comprised of professional programmer Jorge Hernandez (Hey Whore Hey) and classically trained Petey Evans (PeteyClicks).
The two have a slew of notable releases including the heavily remixed "Neva Get Caught" on T&A Records, "Cranberry Goose EP" on Distal's Atlanta based Embassy Imprint, and "Can't Believe EP" on AC Slater's Label – Party Like Us. Great taste and selection combined with honed production skills gives this group prowess in both quality and efficiency in the studio and has lead to some huge Dirty South and Club Anthem remixes.
With a heavy touring schedule and a stack of upcoming releases, the sound of Clicks & Whistles is sure to be in your ears and coming to a city near you.
