Man, Kaytranada is one of my favorites. The man makes some of the bounciest, most interesting beats I’ve heard in awhile. Even when they’re moderately overbearing they have a way of growing on me unlike any other artist. I was first introduced to him through his work with my favorite rapper of the past few years, Mick Jenkins, although his catalogue stretches much further than that. His solo work is something I just started to delve into and I’ve been listening with hungry ears for a few weeks now. So, when I saw that he had remixed Janet Jackson’s 1980’s hit “Alright” I was incredibly intrigued. The twist he puts on the song was immediately recognizable as his signature sound. Although the first few listens didn’t exactly floor me, I have to say it’s interesting enough to throw on your playlist for this upcoming week. Give it a listen yourself below and enjoy.
