Kaytranada -Caution (Kaytranada Music/Sony Music): The Polaris Music Prize-winning, Grammy-nominated producer and recording artist released this new single last week. It debuted as part of TikTok's initiative celebrating Black History Month, and the full version now available. This is the Haitian-Canadian DJ and record producer’s first release since he earned three 2021 Grammy Award nominations, for Best New Artist, Best Dance Recording (for 10%), and Best Dance/Electronic Album for Bubba.
The short track showcases his now internationally-heralded chops as a producer. It fuses disco, house, and funk elements and its circular and repetitive nature is quietly mesmerising.
The Montreal-based artist is still basking in the success of 2019's Bubba that featured Pharrell Williams, Tinashe, Kali Uchis, GoldLink, Charlotte Day Wilson, Estelle, Mick Jenkins, SiR. The album landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Electronic Albums chart and No. 3 on the R&B Albums chart.
In 2020, Kaytranada released an instrumental version of Bubba, as well as Look Easy, a track featuring Lucky Daye. He also collaborated with multiple Grammy winner Robert Glasper, remixing the latter's track Better Than I Imagined.
He won the 2016 Polaris Music Prize for the album 99.9%.
