Kaytranada Remixes Latrelle’s House Party For The Club

Kaytranada has started 2017 with a club-ready edit of  Latrelle’s “House Party” single which came out in 2001. The longtime Neptunes collaborator’s album  Dirty Girl, Wrong Girl, Bad Girl never came out but “House Party” was released as a single. Kaytranada erases the more melodic pop elements of the song with synthetic horns, a classic house beat with drumbreaks by BadBadNotGood. Kaytranada introduced his interest in Latrelle’s single on his 0.oo1% collection of beats and loops that he gave away on Soundcloud a few months ago.


Janelle Monae On Ellen

Janelle Monae was a guest on Ellen today to promote her new movie Hidden Figures. She talked about how she assumed the movie’s storyline about the African-American women who mapped out John Glenn’s space mission with mathematics was historical fiction. Monae also tells Ellen how her mother was not impressed with her achievement as an opening act for Stevie Wonder and Prince but felt like her daughter made it after she got a movie role. Hidden Figures open in theaters tomorrow.
