Known as a Soundcloud golden child, Kaytranada quickly became a household name for blogs ever since posting his first remixes to the music sharing platform. Three years later, and the Montreal native producer is now putting out one of the years most anticipated albums in 99.9%. From the moment he dropped “GLOWED UP” featuring Anderson.Paak, it was certain amongst those awaiting the LP release, that it would exceed all expectations. With the album now out, and multiple tour dates selling out quickly, it seems as though this will be the year Kaytranada truly gets his, and goes beyond his internet fame.

Over the weekend we got a whole lot of amazing albums dropped on us, including this one from singer-songwriter and producer James Blake. The Colour In Anything marks his third studio album release, and has already been acknowledged as one of the best albums of the year so far. The London born musician has a knack for bringing out the beauty in heartbreak and solitude and does it once again on this album. The album runs a  little over an hour and is driven by poetic lyrics, pulsing percussion and rich keyboard playing throughout.
