Kaytranada, the Montreal-raised producer, arrived during the early 2010s with ear-perking remixes and an array of sounds that veered from J Dilla-inspired hip-hop beats to distinctly woozy house grooves. Numerous commissioned works and short-form solo releases led to his debut album, 99.9% which went on to win the 2016 Polaris Music Prize and the 2017 Juno Award for ‘Electronic Album of the Year’.
Since signing to major-label RCA, the Haitian-Canadian has released his second album, Bubba, that featured artists like Kali Uchis, SiR, Masego, Tinashe, and Pharrell Williams and won the young producer two GRAMMYs at the 2021 GRAMMY Awards.
Kaytranada has produced for a wide array of artists including Anderson .Paak, Chance the Rapper, Robert Glasper, Lauren Faith, Mick Jenkins, GoldLink, Snoop Dogg, Freddie Gibbs, and Alicia Keys.
Kaytranada first visited NorthSide in 2019 with great reviews to follow, and he was recently back in Denmark supporting The Weeknd. Now, he’s ready to return to Aarhus and we simply can’t wait.
