Rec'd: Kaytranada, "Leave Me Alone" (Feat. Shay Lia)

Hear an excellent new single from the rising Montreal producer

Along with Gorgon City, make sure to watch out for Kaytranada, an up-and-coming producer from Montreal who has already secured the blessings of Disclosure, Mobb Deep, and Vic Mensa (they worked together on Mensa's latest single, "Wimme Nah"). The 21-year-old Kaytranada has been making waves for his adept fusion of electronica and hip hop, and his latest, "Leave Me Alone," is a candid representation of his abilities. Enlisting fellow Montrealer Shay Lia to provide the vocals, the song is smooth and luxurious, no doubt prompting much head-thumping and fist-bumping out in the field, though in the most chill sort of way. Recently signed to XL Recordings, the track will appear on the producer's forthcoming EP, So Bad (no release date yet). Hear it below:
