Through and through, Bubba is a masterpiece. It comes as the second full project from the Canadian phenom, Kaytranada, and simply does not miss. The mastery comes with his roots as an electronic producer and his consistent use of crisp house, techno, and dance beats … and most songs on the album start with just that, a beat: usually a simple percussive rhythm or groovy baseline that is eventually layered with silky synths and hip-hop or R&B sampling. Kaytranada spares no expense with these samples and includes notable collaborators like Pharrell, Tinashe, and GoldLink. Ultimately, Bubba ends up manifesting as both a project with incredibly complex quality but also a seemingly simple groove all the way through. Read more about Kaytranada's grammy-winning album here!
