The year is almost over, but there's still time to squeeze a few killer beats into the calendar. Kaytranada is an absolute master of mood. The Haitian-Canadian producer sits squarely between the worlds of hip-hop and electronic in a cool, modern J Dilla sort of way. Today, he gives us a double-sided EP called Nothin Like U/Chances, and it crams a few more must-hear rhythms in your ear before the year is through.

The lead track features Ty Dolla $ign's extra wavy R&B flow over a dream-weaving beat that's so chill, Kaytranada had to give you the instrumental, too. "Chances" is a real grown-and-sexy groove, good for dancing or lowering the lights, thanks in part to Shay Lia's breathy brilliance. We get an instrumental of that one, too, before the EP finishes with a glowing, '80s-tinged, Caribbean-spiced, pure electronic number called "It Was Meant 2 B."

The double-sided Nothin Like U/Chances EP is out now via RCA Records. Listen to it in full below.
