Keys N Krates ‘Original Classics’ Album Out Now

By RawKeith / November 12, 2021

Today marks the release of award-winning trio Keys N Krates’ brand new Original Classics album.  Listeners will find the vibrant track, ‘Siento Mi Destino (feat. Lido Pimienta)’, on the album, and you can check it out below.

In addition to already having the title track listed as the #1 Most Added track on NACC Hip Hop Charts, Keys N

Krates have seen their single ‘Brazilian Love Song’ being included on EA Sports’ FIFA 22 soundtrack.

Keys N Krates speaking about the sound of the new album: "This album was about us finding our place in dance music, which probably sounds weird coming from a band probably classified as a dance act. Rather than 'jump up and down festival music,' we wanted something more for the dark club. We are hesitant to use the word 'mature,' but we'll just go ahead and say we want it to feel more mature. We wanted a lot of groove, loose feeling but driving drums, syncopation, an overall tribal feeling, a more global sound, 808s, orchestral and synthy textures; all things we love. We wanted it to be a mix of pop songs and instrumental songs and moody interludes that all feel like they come from the same place. We wanted it to be dramatic and fun. Put simply, we tried to make music that we would want to hear if we turned up somewhere to dance." 

Coupled with Original Classic's release is the visual album by Sammy Rawal, who created and directed a vibrant and psychedelic video for each track on the record. Rawal says the inspiration behind the videos comes from 90s warehouse raves, early 2000s RnB videos and films like Blade and Hackers. The cast is comprised of models and up-and-coming legends of the Ballroom scene from iconic houses such as House of Miyake Mugler, House of Ninja and House of Louboutin.
