Fast rising Toronto producer, artist and songwriter KTOE is the one to look out for. He dropped his highly anticipated debut EP I’m Mad. Signed to Dr. Luke’s Prescription Songs publishing, the 21-year-old has been quietly supplying the soundtrack for a new generation of world class talents. It was only last year that KTOE landed his first major label production credits on three songs from Juno Award-winning Toronto rapper Jazz Cartier’s debut Fleurever. As the lone guest artist on Jazz’s critically-acclaimed debut, KTOE provided the hook and music for the album’s best performing single, “Right Now”, which was Jazz Cartier’s highest charting single to date, landing in the Top 40 on US urban charts. As the perfect segue leading into KTOE kick-starting his own solo career, Jazz returned the favor appearing as a guest on his “Touring” single late last year.
“My inspiration behind calling the EP I’m Mad is to show people that you can’t really put me into a box when it comes to my artistry, and that I’m not just a producer and songwriter. The goal is to showcase my versatility and have every one of the six songs make you feel a different type of energy!”
KTOE spends much of his quality time in recording studios working alongside other talented producers and/or artists like Jazz Cartier and recent Def Jam signee Yung Tory (who appeared on KTOE’s “Alter Ego” single this year), WondaGurl, Rockie Fresh, Valee, Uno The Activist, CMDWN, Smiley, Ty Senoj, TRIPSIXX and more. His climb to the top of charts is backed by his extensive resume which sets the listeners up for this EP.
For KTOE’s release party in Toronto, above a good listen of his EP, Redecan provided in-kind marijuana products for attendees. Stream the EP below.
