Afrika Bambaataa – Planet Rock (KAYTRANADA Planet Invasion Remix)

Categories ELECTRONIC, HIP-HOP/SPOKEN WORD, MUSICPosted on

For his latest, KAYTRANADA has blessed the world with a dope remix of Afrika Bambaataa and the Soulsonic Force’s iconic 80’s hit, ‘Planet Rock’. The track is taken from the new documentary (and soundtrack EP) 808, based on the Roland TR-808 drum machine that served as a major piece of Hip-Hop history.

You can enjoy the documentary and soundtrack here; KAYTRANADA’s remix can be found below. As far as Bambaataa himself…

KAYTRANADA has decided to share to the world a couple of recent edits, one of Chance The Rapper’s ‘All Night’ and one of Solange’s ‘Cranes In The Sky’. While we have already heard the Chance The Rapper edit (it appears on KAYTRANADA’s mixtape 0.001%), we’re pretty hype about the latter, which the Canadian DJ/producer revealed during a DJ set:

I couldn’t help it and I can’t deny how good it sounds… This is just an edit to play on my DJ sets, and I played it once and everybody wanted it right away.

He also revealed that he hoped to connect with Solange and her team to create an official remix.

Until then, you can enjoy both tracks below.

Categories VIDEOPosted on

TRUTH: We wish we could pack up and follow Red Bull Music Academy’s events around the world. With that random point out of the way: RBMA is currently holding court in Montreal until the end of this month; one of the artists to take part was currently on-top producer (and hometown hero) KAYTRANADA, who held a dope lecture alongside host Anupa Mistry. You can enjoy said lecture in full above, which sees KAYTRANADA speaking on his childhood, touring the world, Montreal, his now-well-known remixes and more.

Categories VIDEOPosted on

KAYTRANADA drops off a new visual for the track ‘You’re The One’, which features The Internet’s Syd (Tha Kyd)…the track is the latest to be taken from 99.9%. In the clip, we see the DJ/producer acting as a prince’s assistant…it’s kind of a twisted blend of Coming To America and, well…a 90’s Black sitcom, we guess.

Make sure you also check out KAYTRANADA’s new mixtape 0.001% as well.
