Keys N Krates Announces NA Tour

Today, Toronto natives Keys N Krates is announcing an upcoming North American tour. The 16-day headlining tour, which will feature DJ sets from the group, includes stops in DC, Detroit, Chicago, NYC and more. The band has set up a Fans First pre-sale for tickets that launches on July 26 with full ticket sales launching on July 30.

To celebrate the tour announcement, the trio is sharing a new song. “Brazilian Love Song,” a dynamic, house-inflected track, features tropical percussion, abrupt tempo changes and grooves that are sure to pack dance-floors. The new song comes on the heels of “Take It Off,” the group’s bouncy and engrossing collaboration with Bibi Bourelly that was released after Keys N Krates announced a global deal with Last Gang Records.

Of the track, Keys N Krates says: “‘Brazilian Love Song’ is an amalgamation of music styles that we love as a band, and have been listening together a lot for the last couple of years. Baile Funk, 70’s disco sounding soundtrack music, Bollywood strings, gospel house, and trap music influences are all smashed together for a dramatic, romantic and feel good party jam. We were trying to make something undeniably dancey but also not quite identifiable in terms of style.”

Keys N Krates most recent full-length release, 2019’s A Beat Tape For Your Friends, included the original version of “Double Dutch,” and was coined the “beat tape of the summer” by Exclaim! upon its release. In 2020, KNK released an edit package they made of Frank Ocean, Lauryn Hill, and Snoh Aalegra to support the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund.
