Kaytranada Drops “Glowed Up” Video Featuring Anderson .Paak, Announces Tour Dates
Kaytranada is living the stuff of dreams -- or at least a solid acid trip -- in the video for "Glowed Up."
The visual follows the Montreal beatmaker down a sonic rabbit hole as he dances, eats PB & J, smashes lamps and gets a haircut in the jungle while holding an albino python. As the vibe of the song changes around the three-minute mark, the party slows down and Kaytranada floats away on a bare mattress in a dirty pool. If this is what Kaytra's lucid dreams look like, we want in.
And that's not all. In addition to dropping this dope new video, Kaytranada is going on tour. In anticipation for the Haitian producer/DJ's debut album 99.9%, due out May 6, XL Recordings announced that Kaytranada will be embarking on a 26-date tour. The international sensation with a futuristic sound is hitting the road this spring, starting off in Europe. Kaytra will country-hop in Germany, France, the U.K. and more before coming back stateside and finishing his tour on the festival circuit, most notably with a high-billed set at New York's Panorama Festival.
The electronic aficionado has been making more appearances in the hip-hop world than ever. He's assisted Vic Mensa, Mick Jenkins and Pusha T on beats as early as 2013 but has recently skyrocketed in the game thanks to his signature sounds. Anderson .Paak, GoldLink, Vic Mensa and BADBADNOTGOOD are all featured on the DJ's debut album. Peep the strangely compelling video for "Glowed Up" above and the dates for Kaytra's headlining tour below.
