Dynamic Adam Tune on the drums, World Champion turntablist Jr‐Flo on turntables, and the ever soulful Matisse on the keys are doing nothing short of “re‐inventing the remix”. Like nothing you’ve ever seen before, Keys N Krates combine live instrumentation, turntablism and live sampling to remix existing pop music and samples from MGMT to Jay‐Z right before your eyes. Pushing the envelope beyond the ideals of laptop‐centric remix culture, this unique trio changes the game by bringing an explosive live analog presence to their sought‐after sound and performance. The live re‐mix trio was featured in Urb Magazine’s “Next 100″ issue and continue to receive countless co‐signed features by Urb Magazine, Vapors Magazine, Spinner.com (AOL’s premiere music site), Beyond Race Magazine, Evil Monito, Hip Hop Official, Format Magazine, Discobelle and many more throughout the blogosphere. Sharing stages with Kid Cudi, Steve Aoki, Questlove and Timbaland, KNK maintain a non‐stop tour schedule throughout all of North America. The trio has recently taken their live re‐mix sound to the studio crafting live compositions into signature recordings. Their latest mix 'Almost 39 Minutes' reflects the evolving sound of the trio’s remix style, showcasing their dynamic performance in this much anticipated live recording.
