12 O'Clock Track: King Louie and Tree cut loose on the bombastic remix of Keys N Krates' "Dum Dee Dum"

Toronto electronic trio Keys N Krates make the kind of pumped-up, ADD dance music that's de rigueur at every multiday EDM festival where DayGlo apparel is essential. Ordinarily I wouldn't consider writing about this outfit for 12 O'Clock Track—their music is fine but generally there isn't enough to pique my interest—but just the other day they dropped a remix of their tune "Dum Dee Dum" which features local rappers King Louie and Tree and Georgia MC Cyhi the Prynce. Cyhi gives an admirable and smooth performance at the end of the track, but Tree and King Louie are hard acts to follow—Tree's gritty drawl and Louie's slightly unhinged flow fit Keys N Krates' bone-dry drum patterns and jumpy, warped vocal samples. Take a listen below and if you dig it head to Reggie's Rock Club tonight for King Louie's headlining set.
