Fresh off of the back of winning the 2016 Polaris Prize for his album 99.9%, Montreal producer and remix merchant Kaytranada has dropped two smooth new edits of tracks by Solange and Chance the Rapper.
Solange's confessional and pristine "Cranes in the Sky" was a worthy number one hit, and Kay looks set to increase the track's longevity further with this gorgeous ambient cut. He teased it during a set at New York City’s Terminal 5 last week, and it wasn't clear whether he'd share it online, but he apparently decided to release the full version after embracing “how good it sounds.”
When he finally uploaded it, he wrote: "Honestly I was gonna wait to see if Solange or her team or whoever works for her would've ask [sic] me to do an official remix so if they still want to, I could make it sound better than that version but ohhhhh, what the hell….anyways I highly recommend you that new Solange album A Seat At The Table.”
Just a few minutes later he followed it up with another edit, this time of Chance the Rapper and Knox Fortune's track "All Night." The cut was initially buried in his 0.001% mixtape - which you can listen to here - but now the African House-ish style track gets a full run out on Soundcloud. Listen to that one below.
