Keys N Krates Are Bringing the Party to Texas This Fall

Have you ever been at a show and heard music that was just so good you had to run on stage naked? If you answered no, then you probably haven’t been to a Keys N Krates show lately. Well, that changes soon since we’re bringing the talented trio on select dates this November.

Who’s Keys N Krates?

Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Keys N Krates first gained traction by remixing tracks by artists like Mos Def, Tribe Called Quest, The Fugees, Dr. Dre, and Simian Mobile Disco. Made up of drummer Adam Tune, synth/keyboardist David Matisse, and internationally award-winning turntablist Jr. Flo, it didn’t take very long for the boys to realize their electronic sound translated well into live performances.

“Our live show is what really gave birth to this whole thing,” Flo says. “At first we just really wanted to do something new and cool that was live, so we started with doing these live remix/covers of rap tunes and jamming on those. We always wanted to be a modern party band so we very early on wanted to draw on pop culture references to get people into it right away. However, we eventually started making our own beats and music that was more bass driven so we had to figure a way out how to play that live and keep with our mantra of doing everything 100% live with no backing tracks. So we replaced our live kick with a trigger kick that plays a lot of 808s and punchy kicks and that was kind of the game changer for us, in having a bigger more bass driven sound, and also having our own original beats incorporated into our show. So now when you come to see us it’s a lot of our own music but mashed up with familiar samples and references. It’s a party.”

Bringing their awesome blend of bass heavy material with influences of hip hop, trap, and electronica, the party comes to Texas this fall and we couldn’t be any more excited. Be sure to check out to their first single of 2015, “Save Me” and join us on our partnering dates!

You Asked for It - Here are the Second Phase of Dates for Life in Color

Parties are great; but paint parties are even better. Life in Color has been dominating 2015 with the Big Bang World Tour. Our favorite paint party gets crazier every year and this 2015 round has given fans a new experience that will bring them through a journey on how color was created. But the journey isn’t over yet.

We’re pleased to announce the second phase of 2015’s Big Bang tour heading to a city near you this fall. Much like the first installment, the second incarnation of the tour will answer how did color come to be and will teach fans about the origins of paint through the Paint Factory.

You won’t be painting in silence though – talents like Borgeous, Carnage, and Dillon Francis have soundtracked the nights on the first phase, so you can expect an equally awesome stack of talent when you join us at one of the most vibrant parties in the world.

Get ready to explore the history of color in our Paint Factory while you enjoy a unique fusion of music, art, and dancing. Grab your tickets and start the countdown to the Big Bang!

We're Gliding Through the Frequencies with Morgan Page for ‘DC to Light’

With three studio albums, two Grammy nominations and five International Dance Music Award nominations to his credit, Morgan Page has definitely established himself as one of the top producers of our generation. The progressive house talent has given dance music fans some classic anthems including “Longest Road” and “Fight For You,” both of which have remained staples on dance floors around the globe.

This June, the Vermont-native will deliver his first album in three years called DC To Light and with the album announcement, came the release of the LP’s debut single “Open Heart.” Devoted Page fans will fall in love with the track from the very start with triumphant melodies joined with the beautiful stylings of vocalist favorite, Lissie. “There’s something special that happens when we get together in the studio,” Page says about Lissie. “We somehow get these songs that just cut through the clutter.”

His experience as a technician-turned host of a local college radio station was likely the inspiration for the title of his fourth long-player, being that “DC to light” is a term used to describe a radio that can cover every possible frequency range known to man. Our bet is that the forthcoming album will have a similar description, gliding through the many frequency ranges of Morgan Page’s lauded aesthetic.

In support of forthcoming album, Morgan Page also announced a DC to Light tour, complete with dates all across sectors of the country from spring through to summer. Starting in Seattle, the talent will travel throughout the U.S. and Canada before ending his tour in Cincinnati, Ohio and for an added treat, Morgan Page is giving away a digital copy of the album to each fan when they purchase tickets for one of the dates on the tour. Don’t miss the veteran as he heads to a city near you!
