keys n krates on tour

Canadian trio Keys N Krates have just released the visuals for their latest single “Save Me” featuring acclaimed UK vocalist Katy B. Directed by Adam Beck and Paul Johnston, the video sets out to present an absurdist take on our love of material things. The idea being, humans tend to put a lot of value and investment in caring for the inanimate objects that often clutter our lives and distract us from the present moment. This can often lead to misery and missed opportunity. Ultimately, you can’t take this stuff with you, folks!

The track itself features heavy pads and build-up sequences familiar to fans of KNK and of the big room breakbeat style popularized over the last four years or so. Add this tune to the (extremely long) list of those to utilize the immortal “Amen” break.

The video celebrates the kick off of the latest Keys N Krates series of live dates that includes appearances at the Mad Decent Block Party, Electric Zoo Bumbershoot, Nocturnal Wonderland and more. One date of notes is August 9th on which Keys N Krates’ will celebrate their very own Birthday Party at Toronto’s Sunnyside Pavilion with a line up that includes Just Blaze, Flat White, Ganz, Tennyson, Ouici, and Harrison.
