In a week of artists making comebacks, Kaytranada is the latest to put out some original music today with a five-track EP NOTHIN LIKE U / CHANCES. The EP contains three new songs and two instrumentals of the title tracks. In addition to the new music, Kaytranada has also announced he is partnering with RCA Records, who will release his new album next year.
The EP starts out with "NOTHIN LIKE U" featuring Ty Dolla $ign, whose voice makes so much sense for a Kaytranada beat. The Canadian works his magic with floating synths, upbeat drums and the laidback funk he always manages to bring to the table. “CHANCES” is a bit more relaxing with a slower beat, some warm synths and Shay Lia providing a vocal that elevates the track to another level. As part of the EP, he drops off instrumentals for both tracks if people want to just vibe out to an instrumental, but the vocal mixes are both great. “IT WAS MEANT 2 B” is another well-crafted instrumental from Kaytranada that rounds out the EP with another dose of jazzy, R&B-blended beats.
Groove out to NOTHIN LIKE U / CHANCES now and get ready for the follow-up to 99.9% sometime next year. Pick up the EP here.
