We get a backstage pass for the Haitian-Canadian producer's KOKO gig.

Since he released his critically acclaimed debut album 99.9% back in 2016, Haitian-Canadian producer Kaytranda has been keeping somewhat of a low profile – presumably (and hopefully) to work on his second release. But for a special night at Camden’s KOKO, the electronic expert came out of the woodwork for a one-off performance of all his biggest and best original hits, and of course, some worthy reworks.

Despite it being a Monday night, tickets for the event sold out in seconds, evidence to the fact that Kaytranda is one of the worlds most recognised producers right now. Now that we needed any more evidence; his first album won the 2016 Polaris Music Prize and Electronic Album of the Year at the 2017 Juno Awards while videos of his live shows can collect over 2million views. He’s also received praise from the likes of Diplo, Drake, Mobb Deep and Madonna.

We managed to get our hands on a backstage pass for the gig to get some intimate snaps of our fave electro producer.
