Keys N Krates have hit the road with the Midnite Mass tour in support of their latest EP. The Triangle is fortunate to be one of their many stops with a visit in Carrboro at Cat's Cradle this Wednesday, January 27.
This three-piece group formed in 2008 in Toronto has
evolved from a live hip-hop band into an intricate trio of producers
and performers. Keys N Krates fall under the umbrella of EDM, but
labeling their sound isn't that simple. They are comprised of Jr. Flo on
the turntables, keyboard player David Matisse, and Adam Tune on the
drums. On stage, they mesh electronic beats with live instruments,
creating a unique sound and a captivating show. Adding to the
entertainment, it's not unusual for the members to mix it up and trade
roles, keeping the performances fresh and energetic.
N Krates are traveling with good company, being joined by Ganz and
Hermitude for part of their tour. Stooki Sound and Jesse Slayter will
be getting the crowd started for the Cat's Cradle show, which starts at
8:30. Tickets are $20-$22 and can be purchased at the Cat's Cradle website.
