Follow: Facebook, Twitter

I first heard of Kaytranada through Soundcloud with his remixes of various R&B and hip-hop songs from the 90’s and 00’s such as Janet Jackson, Amerie and The Fugees; and then hearing songs he produced for artists like The Internet and Anderson .Paak. The album 99.9% blends elements from house, soul, funk, R&B and electronic music. This is one of those albums you can play from beginning to end and not get bored and then start it from the top!

About Chris Robles

Hi! I am Chris Robles, a music supervisor at PlayNetwork, and I have been in the music industry since 1999.

I can’t remember when I haven’t been listening to music. Growing up my parents always listened to music around the house. As I got older, I shared music with friends and we watched a ton of music videos (I mean, who didn’t?).

My love for various styles of music and my experience of understanding the music branding industry is probably what drove me into the music business. I started working in production, and later joined a promotion company where I designed promotional material. I also worked to book DJs and bands like George Clinton & Parliament, Spinderella, Questlove, Pete Rock, and DJ Lord (Public Enemy), to name a few.

I started at PlayNetwork in 2009 and continue to multitask, working with clients that span the retail landscape—fashion, home décor, hotels, bars and restaurants. I love discovering new music I know will work perfectly for one of my brand partners. And by far, the best part about working at PlayNetwork is being in a creative environment with a group of talented people.
