Kaytranada has captivated audiences around the globe with his genre-defying style and talent. From Grammy-winning albums to chart-topping singles fusing electronic, hip-hop and R&B, he has cemented his status as one of the most influential artists in contemporary music.

His debut studio album, 2016’s 99.9%, featured guest appearances from Phonte, Craig David, Vic Mensa, and Little Dragon, and secured him the prestigious Polaris Music Prize. His follow-up record, Bubba, won him two Grammy Awards, including Best Dance/Electronic Album, making history as the first black artist to win in this category.

Kaytranada has also produced for a wide array of artists including Chance the Rapper, Alicia Keys, Lauren Faith and Snoop Dogg, as well producing chart-topping hits including ‘Glowed Up’ and ‘Leave Me Alone’. During his standout set at Coachella last year he brought out Aminé as his guest, where the duo performed the live debut of ‘4eva’ from their joint album Kaytraminé.
