Cadet and I are banking on producer wunderkind Kaytranada to have big 2014 after having a strong 365 this current year. The Montreal native picked up his share of critical acclaim, landed an official remix of Disclosure (“January”) and toured Europe and Australia. And it was all built off his brand of “sweater beats,” usually most recognized by his ill work with drum patterns. To keep the momentum going and celebrate everything the year was, Kaytranada’s giving away Instrumental Hip Hop Is Dead, a nearly 50-minute beat tape worth spending time with. Listen to us now, believe us later on.
