Keys N Krates – Are We Faded (Original Mix)
2013’s SOLOW EP was not just a marker in the sand for trap’s stunning live potential, but an indicator that Keys N Krates were enroute to being one of its most crucial assets to date. Enroute to the trio’s second EP for Dim Mak, “Are We Faded” sets the tone at a considerable peak for the impending Every Nite short-player and their rapid accession of the global taste buds.
A union littered with clichés and near misses, “Are We Faded” reminds us just how powerful the union of dance floor fundamentals and hip hop etiquette can sound when executed in the right hands. Powerful beats, ample triplet runs and that infectious sampled prowess scream all the hallmarks of another solid run for a trio cutting notably unique shapes in the industry. As the live saviours of a sound many thought wouldn’t stick it out, Keys N Krates remain essential listening to anyone keen to see the trap’s most viable chance of a universal future moving forward.
