Since their breakout 2013 EP Solow, Keys N Krates have ridden shotgun in a tandem lounge chair with convulsing electronic genres and their interrelated producers, occasionally clutching the wheel with their three left fists to swerve the trap movement one way or another. With their follow-up EP, Every Nite, dropping late last year, they upped their game once more before doubling back and whispering 2015 Australian tour dates in our ear. We spoke to the trio briefly mere weeks before they hit our shores.
