‘99.9%’ is the debut studio album by Canadian music producer Kaytranada. ‘99.9%’ has been released through UK based independent label, XL Recordings. Since it’s release May 6th, I’ve had a chance to sit with it and listen. Literally obsessed with the production and the contributions on it. The 15-track album features guest like Syd, Anderson .Paak, Vic Mensa, Craig David, Little Dragon, and more. What makes this project unique and personable is that all it’s creative production was provided by Kaytranada himself.
Prior to releasing his debut album, you might’ve been familiar with production from the artist used for popular artist like Vic Mensa and even Taleb Kweli. The 23 year old producer has literally been a Soundcloud wiz, using that platform to deliver exciting dope remixes and original sounds, like that Janet Jackson remix that made him go viral. Not to mention, he still lives at home with his Haitian family..so humble.
If you haven’t yet, I’d recommend you start giving this up and coming artist a listen. Below is a live stream of ‘99.9%’ as well. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
