Like the title says – RUN, don’t walk, to KAYTRANADA‘s Soundcloud right now! The king of groove just spontaneously dropped not one, but three tracks on us. And they may not be available for long, so you would be silly to not check them out!
Time is of the essence, so let’s get into these KAYTRANADA releases!
“Damage, KAYTRA Edition”
On this one, KAYTRANADA remixes the track “Damage” by an R&B/Soul queen. In the Soundcloud notes he writes, “My take on H.E.R.‘s ‘Damage’… completed that one last year & prayed they would put it out but ay… whatever.” Lucky for us, he did not let that stop him from releasing the track himself! His rendition is just as smooth and sexy as the original – if that was even possible.
“LALALA” (2019 demo)
KAYTRA brings the funk on this resurfaced demo. In the Soundcloud notes, he says, “Outtake from BUBBA… wasn’t ready to use my voice yet. Bass by Thundercat.” There is no way you can sit still while streaming “LALALA!”
“P.O.M.M.” (2017 demo)
Proving that he has been the vibe master, KAYTRANADA releases this old gem from 2017. “P.O.M.M.” features vocals from the angelic Tinashe, and drums by Alex Sowinski. Not sure about you, but we want this on repeat all day!
These spontaneous releases surely made this one fun Tuesday morning! Hopefully, they will all stay up on Soundcloud, but just in case you can stream the rest of KAYTRANADA’s discography, below. And, be sure to snag tickets for his Fall tour, here.
