Showbox presents Kaytranada: Bubba North American Tour
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. Since the age of fourteen, when he first began to DJ and the following year when his brother introduced him to music production software, his output has been relentless. As he explains, “after he showed me the basics, from that day on I couldn’t stop making beats,” pumping out a beat a day for the next couple of years and soon after self-releasing a series of EPs and beat tapes that quickly began to expand his reach. Instant-classic remixes by the likes of Missy Elliot, Janet Jackson,TLC, Danny Brown and others have cemented his reputation and his sound; an undeniable swing of the drums comparable to Dilla’s, a signature soulful touch in the melodies, and a healthy dose of funky bass lines.
Critics often say his career as an artist has 3 parts and that’s what makes him so versatile and talented. Solo artist, Producer, and DJ. The latter of which he has proved time and time again. He is non stop in demand as one of the worlds most popular Dj’s, and sells out the world’s most prestige venues on a regular basis with his exceptional show. With his career only beginning, and having accomplished so much already, keep your eye on this extraordinary producer as chances are you will be hearing a lot from him in the decades to come.
