Being named as one of the Best Dance Albums of 2021 by Billboard, Original Classic by electronic band Keys N Krates has received the recognition it deserves, and we couldn’t be more delighted. This 13 track masterpiece combines a Caribbean finish and more bassy electronic influence into one vibrant and dance-fuelled sound. The band has shared their latest video for the album’s title track. This video sums up the euphoria experienced when listening to this spirited track that compels the listener to tap their feet along with its catchy flow and beat variations.
WATCH: The Visual Album
Previously featured on Afrotrax (Read the full feature here), the magazine commented on the Original Classic album: “Innovative electronic trio Keys N Krates have left us in awe with their latest LP offering Original Classic. Released via the imprint Last Gang Records, this album is their most experimental work to date. They incorporate moombahton, footwork, and Caribbean textures into one eclectic and refreshing style. Street orientated but also genre-fluid, we are obsessed.
Catch the band on Tour
Directed and animated by Bird Peterson , the video is lighthearted and nostalgic with its ‘60s infused landscape. The video is a clever play on the negative connotations around children eating sugary cereals and listening to hip-hop. An amusing watch, we are wrapped up in this animated world where children turn into hip-hop and sugar-hungry monsters.
