HYPETRAK Mix: INSTRUMENTAL HIP HOP IS DEAD – KAYTRANADA
Today we proudly present the latest HYPETRAK Mix by none other than Kaytranada. The Montreal native has compiled an intriguing selection of hard-hitting unreleased production. Much closer to Dilla's Donuts than a DJ mix, this is essentially a raw beat tape -- in the purest form there is.
How did you approach this mix? What was the idea behind it?
No ideas, just a mix of my old hip-hop beats.
2013 was a successful year for you. What was your personal highlight?
My first tour in Europe in May, was definitely my highlight of the year.
What's your main goal for 2014?
I wish that my success will continue for 2014.
Favorite song and album this year?
Happy - Pharrell / 7 Days of Funk, but I didn't think music was very good this year.
