It’s been too long but Cadence Weapon is baaack. And on a beat by fellow Canadian Kaytranada? Sweet.

‘My Crew (Woooo)’ is a fresh reintroduction to Rollie Pemberton. It’s his first since 2012’s Hope In Dirt City from the former Edmonton poet laureate and is inspired by his time spent in Montreal. Rollie says the song is “an anthem about unapologetically being who you want to be, no matter what anybody else thinks.”

“There’s a sense of personal freedom that’s unique to Montreal and ‘My Crew (Woooo)’ is a representation of that feeling. It’s a song about defying the labels that people try to place on artists. Is it underground? Mainstream? Conscious? Trap? Who cares, as long as it sounds dope.”

It is dope indeed.

Yesterday, NAO was announced for Dublin’s Forbidden Fruit Festival and today, the singer has dropped a remix companion EP to last year’s debut album For All We Know.

Featuring 5 reworks of songs from the album, it includes a dancehall, Autotuned version of ‘In The Morning’ from Mura Masa, A Stormzy feature on the Loxe remix of ‘Feels Like’, a Sam Gellaitry remix of ‘DYWM’, SBTRKT’s subdued low-end ‘Bad Blood’ rework, and as is often the case with these things, a standout bumping remix from Kaytranada that channels those ‘Cranes In The Sky’ for a new vibe on ‘Get To Know Ya’.

Kaytranada is known for providing bumping instrumentals that suit honey-voiced R&B singers and Alicia Keys has recently been making her best music in many a year (‘In Common’).

Among the many worthy albums released last Friday was Kaytranada’s long-awaited 99.9% debut album on XL.

On the LP, ‘Lite Spots’ is a summer jam, reminiscent of Cut Chemist at the peak of his powers of sample-alchemy, complete with Kaytranada’s trademark beat bumps.

The super fun video directed by Martin C. Pariseau, pairs Kay up with a robot to which himself and a cast of humans teach some sweet dance moves to. That is, until the bot gets intimidated by some particular complex moves.

Kaytranada has linked up with man of the moment Anderson Paak on a new track from his forthcoming debut album 99.9%.

Paak is having some year. From his album of 2016 contender to vocal contributions to tracks from Snakehips, TokiMonsta and NxWorries, he’s killing it.

His smoked tones are perfectly suited to Kaytranada’s bumping productions as you can hear on ‘Glowed Up’, a return for Kay’s production work on ‘Lite Weight’. 99.9% is out on XL on May 6th and features Craig David, Karriem Riggins, Alunageorge, Goldlink, Vic Mensa, Syd and Little Dragon.

The Fader interview with Kay a good read, with him talking about the thought process around coming out as gay and how it was/is affecting his life.
