Producer Kaytranada arrived during the early 2010s with ear-perking remixes and an array of sounds that veered from J Dilla-inspired hip-hop beats to woozy house grooves. The Haiti-born, Montreal-raised artist got hooked on DJ'ing and production during his early teens. As Kaytradamus, he issued a series of digital EPs, albums, and remix compilations. Around 2013, he began to operate as Kaytranada. In 2014, he remixed Disclosure's "January," produced "My Block" for Mobb Deep, and made his XL label debut that August with "Leave Me Alone." During the next two years, Kaytranada's profile steadily rose with additional XL material and outside productions highlighted by "Girl" (the Internet), "Light Weight" (Anderson Paak), and "Honey" (Katy B). 99.9% followed in 2016. ~ Andy Kellman
