Kaytranada – “Seeu Enni Way”


The birds are out, the sundresses, too.  I’m grabbing my iPod and heading to Central Park and I’m bringing Kaytranada with me. The Haitian-Canadian budding star has at once mixed throwback vibes with a forward-thinking attitude to make one heck of a summer time beat. Clearly inspired by J.Dilla, Kaytranada flexes his hip-hop muscle so strong on this one that while we’re loving it, we’re wondering when’s he linking up with rappers? Well he did have “Charles Barkley” with The Celestics giving in their bars, but on this one the Montreal-residing producer throws in a little west-coast wonkiness to this one with various beat studders and tonal manipulation to give the beat enough life to stand on its own. “Seeu Enni Way” is part of a forthcoming compilation on HW&W Recordings expected to drop soon.
