Kaytranada Puts A Footwork-Friendly Spell On Songs By Mary J. Blige & Janet Jackson
Those familiar with the palette of Kaytranada know damn-well the type of affinity he holds for 90s r&b. He’s shown this time and time again over the years with a prolific output of the dance-floor-certified remixes, which pop up on his miles-long Soundcloud page every few weeks or so. Last night proved to be another one of those moments when the north-of-the-border frequency freaker dropped off a pair of new re-freaqs, throwing Janet Jackson‘s “Alright” and Mary J. Blige‘s “I Can Love You” into his crosshairs, casting his footwork-friendly spell on cuts by two of his favorite subjects.
Janet gets infused with some airy, super-swung bossa nova touches, while Mary J’s track is garnished with some of his hallmark house-soaked textures and rhythms. Together, they make for a pair of formidable new additions to an already lengthy portfolio of infectious reconstructions and best of all, they’re available for you to hear in the player below for free ninety-nine. Stream the latest joints from Kaytranada and hold tight for his next transmissions.
