Toronto’s own Keys N’ Krates rocked the Danforth Music Hall with an incredible sound that left fans wanting more.

Midnite Mass is the name of their game, well more like their EP, and kicking off their North American tour, Midnite Mass. It was packed full of catchy and wicked bass drops that had you off your seat and grooving. For real though, even if you did have seats in the balcony, you were up and moving! By the way, koodos to the guys running the light show.

 

The sold out show featured originals like the catchy tune, Dum De Dum, Keep It 💯 and remixed songs like Kanye Wests “FML” featuring The Weeknd. But seriously though, their ability to flip songs and or use samples to create a melody capable of becoming their next hit is impeccable.

 

JR Flo (DJ) Clearly had a really good time while whipping out some wacky facial expressions, Adam Tune (drummer) just killing it, and David Matisse (keyboardist) playing them beautiful keys linked to his mass library of beautiful sounds.

Keys N Krates had this to say about their music:

“We wanted to make music that feels good at home but also slaps in the club or at festivals. It needed to feel like a small body of work that is both emotional and epic while banging out at the same time. The process was basically us creating our own samples by co-writing bits with vocalists that we would then fux with and make these tunes around. Every song had to have grimey sample textures whether it was a distorted string lead, lofi drum sounds or morphed vocals, because afterall, we think of all our beats as rap shit in the end. The shit also had to be catchy and poppy.”

They defiantly nailed it on the head.

 

At 10:45 they walked off stage saying “Thank you Toronto!” and walked proceeded to walk off stage…

Everyone was freaking out, wondering if that REALLY was it…

… Nope. They lied. THEY CAME BACK AND surprised the audience with a special guest by the name of, Kardinal Offishall, and ROCKED FOR ANOTHER couple of tracks. The crowd cheered with so much enthusiasm and embraced the face melting bass.
