Kaytranada gives away bundle of 19 unreleased tracks to fans
Lately, it’s become tradition for producers (Diplo and Four Tet among them) to celebrate a milestone of some kind – social media followings, birthdays, new labels, etc. – with the giving away of free music. If you’re Kaytranada, however, there may be no better reason than “just ‘cause.”
The young beat-maker, known for his smooth, wavy tunes infused with pop and R&B, gave away a bundle of free music late last night on social media. The bundle contains 19 unreleased tracks and remixes, including edits of Ciara’s Body Party, Jill Scott’s It’s Love and Missy Elliott’s I’m Really, Really Hot. Check the full tracklist of the bundle-pack below.
This isn’t the first time the Toronto-based artist has been so generous with his craft. Last month, he offered fans the chance to download his full back catalog for a low price – if not for free – before wiping the slate clean.
Kaytranada is readying for the release of a new EP this summer, out on XL. In an interview with The Fader, he told fans to expect a new Kay with the changing of the seasons, saying, “It’s definitely gonna surprise you. It’s gonna be more abstract-feeling. I tried to do more of my unique stuff-the uptempo, neo-soul type of stuff. That’s what I’m aiming for, to make it as funky as possible.”
While we wait for that to drop, download the bundle in zip form below, via the link in Kay’s tweet.
