Aminé and KAYTRANADA join forces as KAYTRAMINÉ. A collaboration nearly a decade in the making, KAYTRAMINÉ’s roots go back to 2014, when Aminé ﬁrst released “Not At All”, a bootleg remix of KAYTRANADA’s 2013 single “At All”. Upon hearing Aminé’s version of the song, KAYTRANADA reached out to offer up music to use oﬃcially, which resulted in him producing 3 songs on Aminé’s 2015 mixtape ‘Calling Brio’.
After years of requests from their respective fans, Aminé and KAYTRANADA share their ﬁrst single as KAYTRAMINÉ and announce the release of their self-titled album on May 12th. “4EVA”, the new single featuring vocals and co-production from the legendary Pharrell Williams, ﬁnds the two rekindling their natural chemistry.
2022 proved to be a year in which KAYTRANADA’s name became synonymous with dance music itself, emerging as the most singular contemporary DJ/producer worldwide. From his 2x GRAMMY nominations for Best R&B Album and Album of the Year (following his historic wins during the 2021 GRAMMY awards for Best Dance/Electronic Album and Best Dance Recording), his sold out headline shows, opening the North American dates for The Weeknd’s After Hours Til Dawn tour, as well as his being at the center of the public discourse around Drake’s ‘Honestly’, ‘Nevermind’ and Beyonce’s ‘Renaissance’, KAYTRANADA remained omnipresent despite only releasing one single last year, “Twin Flame” featuring Anderson Paak.
2021 saw the release of Aminé’s critically-acclaimed project ‘TWOPOINTFIVE’, which found Aminé exploring new musical territory, borrowing from club music and hyperpop in a way that he hadn’t previously embraced. The success of the record translated to his celebrated live shows, having sold out every international tour on which he’s embarked and seeing him set new records in terms of tickets sold on 2022’s North America’s The Best Tour Ever Tour.
