XL Recordings has always been known for signing spectacular artists. Some of the most significant names over the years have included Vampire Weekend, Adele and even The White Stripes just to name a few. Next up is a producer bred from Montreal that will without a doubt live up to the XL standard. Kaytranada

Born in Haiti and raised in Canada, Kaytranada's music has become synonymous with having a good time. Born Louis Kevin Celestin, the producer/DJ is know for his electrifying remixes for artists such as Janet Jackson, Pharrell, Busta Rhymes and most recently, MNEK's "Wrote A Song About You".
