‘99.9%’ is the debut full-length album from Haitian-Canadian electronica musician, DJ, and producer, Kaytranada. The sizable project is packed with collaborations from Craig David (how I have missed you), Vic Mensa, GoldLink, Syd tha Kid (of The Internet), Little Dragon, Anderson.Paak and more. The project is an impressively successful interpretation of glitch art and ambiance, treating us to perfectly timed, unpredictable shudders and stutters that reflect Kaytranada’s very smart and imaginative abilities as an artist. From start to finish, the 15-track collection immerses you in, what feels like, the best weekend you’ve ever had. Definitely check it out.
