For the last few years now, Canadian producer Kaytranada has been one of the most instantly recognisable artists in electronic music. His preference of a slower tempo and more attention to flow has made his work something that not only stands out, but also makes him a unique player in the scene. So it was only natural for him to release an album and build up his already well-established repertoire with new material.
With an incredible list of collaborators including Craig David, AlunaGeorge, Anderson .Paak and many others, '99.9%' is one of the most instantly enjoyable records we have heard all year. Introducing the album with its brilliant opener 'Track Uno', the LP becomes this unending rhythm of delicious basslines and infectious groove that is almost impossible not to enjoy. With some subtle references to the era of 80s groove, '99.9%' delivers one punch after another.
At a time when electronic music producers are beginning to think less and less about releasing full-length records, Kaytranada sets the standard of what can be done with this format. Engaging and cohesive throughout, this is certainly an album that you'll want to hear again once its over.
