Haiti-born, Montreal-based producer Kaytranada is known for a style that impressively mixes forward-thinking hip-hop beats and sweaty, disco-tinged dance jams, and his debut album fully satisfies those two impulses. At a time in his life where he probably could’ve finagled any number of high-caliber artist features, you can tell that he drew more from his heart, calling on guests like Craig David (“Got It Good”) for hypnotic R&B burners or up-and-comers like Vic Mensa (“Drive Me Crazy”) for understated turn-up vibes. He linked again with the Internet’s Syd for the immaculate “You’re the One,” a perfect blend of his club-rocking style and her soothing voice. If you’re looking for the ideal chill album for you and a select group of squad members, 99.9% comes correct. —khal
