Kaytranada Announces '99.9%' LP, Shares Lush & Lovely New Single feat. Karriem Riggins
With all of the remix game conquering that Kaytranada has displayed over the last few months, it's a little too easy to forget that the north-of-the-border hip-hop/house blend specialist has been prepping a proper debut full-length for 2016. The album, 99.9%, has been nothing more than internet rumor mill fodder for as long as we can remember, but an appearance on Benji B's Midnight Special transmission last night made it crystalline that come May 5th we'd be treated to the anxiously-awaited close-up. And as a warm-up, Kaytra unveiled the album's first single, "Bus Ride" featuring contributions from Detroit drummer and producer, Karriem Riggins. Elsewhere in the interview, Kaytra reveals that BADBADNOTGOOD and The Internet's Syd tha Kid will also be featured on the full treatment. Pre-orders are expected to arrive late next month, but you can whet your palette with Kaytranada and Karriem Riggins' lush and lovely "Bus Ride" below. Keep your eyes on us for updates and the imminent arrival of one of 2016's most anticipated records.
