Download Kaytranada’s Bandcamp catalog before he takes it down

Montreal producer Kaytranada has built up quite the Bandcamp back catalogue in the last few years but he’s told fans to grab the releases while they can.

The 13 releases appear on his Kaytradamus page, the pseudonym he used to produce under, including last year’s excellent ‘Kaytra Todo’ EP and his collaborative work with The Celestics.

He let his Facebook fans aware by saying: “Go out there and cop a Kaytradamus/Kaytranada album. Most of them are free. I’m gonna take em off soon so…yeah.”

The ‘Hilarity Duff’ producer recently collaborated with Mobb Deep for their new album and featured in the March issue of the magazine.

Listen to Lockah’s ‘Yahoo or the Highway’ LP for Donky Pitch


One of the handful of exciting new talents emerging from burgeoning Brighton labelDonky PitchBubblin’ Up Scottish producer Lockah is just under a week from releasing hisdebut LP, Yahoo or the Highway, and has preemptively unleashed the whole record to be streamed online. The artist born Tom Banks delivers 13 neon-hued, rave-indebted, and—on occasion—surprisingly poignant productions across his album’s 45 minutes, focusing as much on dancefloor-friendly beats and hooky melodies as he does atmospherics and other intricate subtleties. Before they drop on April 14, each of Lockah’s new tunes from Yahoo or the Highway can be heard in their entirety here, courtesy of Pitchfork Advance.

Motions debuts on Body High


Brendan Neal, formerly of Grown Folk, will make his debut as Motions on April 29th.

Neal formed Grown Folk a few years ago in Montreal with partner Drew Kim (who now goes by Druture), and the two built up a reputation making hip-hop beats for rappers like Main Attrakionz as well as crafting more house-oriented work for themselves (like their 2013 EP for Icee Hot). After a trip to London last year for a holiday and a Boiler Room session, Neal decided to obtain a work visa and stay in the UK for an extended period of time. After the dissolution of Grown Folk due to stylistic differences, Neal used his time alone to focus on the more house and techno aspect of his work, eventually resurfacing as Motions.

He’s signed to LA label Body High for his first EP, and we spoke with Neal over e-mail to discuss his rebooted career. We’ve also got a stream of “All Gone” below.
