Good Morning Mix: Transport back to 2013 and relive Kaytranada’s silky smooth Boiler Room set
Montreal-based producer Kaytranada is known for his constant experimentation and ability to push the boundaries of not only his own sound, but the borders of dance music as well. After releasing his sophomore album in December of 2019, fans have been basking in the wealth of new Kaytranada material. The LP, titled BUBBA, was the the producer’s first album in a three year period, after his critically lauded debut LP 99.9%. Although 99.9% was released in 2016, the producer was spreading groovy tunes far before the album’s release.
Take a trip down memory lane and start the day off on the right foot with Kaytranada’s unforgettable 2013 Boiler Room set. The producer’s performance in his home city is filled with an array of house, experimental club-ready cuts, and mashups of previous works.

Make no mistake—dance music is born from black culture. Without black creators, innovators, selectors, and communities, the electronic dance music we hold so dear would simply not exist. In short, dance music is deeply indebted to the global black community and we need to be doing more. Black artists and artists of color have played a profound role in shaping the sound and culture of dance music and now more than ever, it is necessary for everyone in the music community to stand up for the people that have given us so much. Dancing Astronaut pledges to make every effort to be a better ally, a stronger resource, and a more accountable member of the global dance music community. Black Lives Matter—get involved here:
