Ask any electronic music fan who’ve an important fixture in the genre and you can be sure that Toronto legends Keys N Krates will come up. It’s that reputation that makes it even more dizzying to consider that after a decade, the three-piece are only just now releasing their debut album, Cura. It’s been well worth the wait - the album isn’t only a solid effort but also surpasses what anyone could’ve expected. There’s elements of hip-hop, house, funk, electronica, dance, and even the tones you’d find in a cinematic score. Keys N Krates have always been ambitious, but Cura further solidifies that they’re a group with a lot to say.

“The most important change for us was when we started making music for ourselves, rather than others.”
