The Toronto trap trio Keys N Krates are at it again with brand new single “U Already Know“, taken from their forthcoming Midnight Mass EP, out on DIM MAK January 15, 2016.
The press release describes it as a “90s rave-inspired track is filled with their signature combo of rolling Amen breaks, hyper-glitched vocals and massive half-time drops.” Or in other words, it bumps. Can confirm. The track opens with a build of Adam Tune’s unmistakably fast and crisp drum fills, before Jr. Flo transitions the piece into David Matisse’s patent fat horn synths. The single gives us a first look at their new EP, following their last critically acclaimed project, the Every Nite EP.
The new single trails earlier knockouts “Save Me (feat. Katy B)” and “I Know U,” arriving on the heels of their non-stop summer which included sets at Electric Zoo, Mad Decent Block Party, Bumbershoot, and their own hometown Birthday Party Festival.
Alongside the EP release, the trio announced the Midnight Mass Tour, featuring support from Hermitude, Stooki Sound, Ganz, and Jesse Slayter. Kicking off Jan. 19th in Burlington, Vermont, the tour will touch down in major North American markets including Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, Denver, LA, and will end March 25th with a hometown Toronto show at Danforth Music Hall.
The group tells us the tour will be a fully realized experience, “a visual extension of the EP, with everything from the lighting and staging to the supporting acts reflecting vibes and influences that exist in the EP. We want it to feel almost like a religious gathering, cause that really in essence is what rave culture is in a lot of ways.” You heard him folks, y’all need some rave church.
