It was only a week ago that Kaytranada and flexible Compton rapper, Buddy, announced their cross-stream project, Ocean & Montana. Today, they deliver on the promise, releasing the five-track project as a standalone piece. It features a fresh batch of productions from the Montreal hit-maker, and some elastic vocal treatments from Buddy, making for a sunny, wave-heavy release, ripe and ready for your poolside air-blessing rituals.
For the venerable producer, it marks yet another instance of providing a rhythmic backbone for a buzzing new artist. For Buddy, it’s just the latest co-sign on an ever-expanding list. Stream Ocean & Montana down below and take it home with you via iTunes today. Catch Kaytranada on the festival circuit this summer.
