”99.9%” marks the debut studio album by Canadian electronic music producer Kaytranada, released on 6 May 2016, through XL Recordings worldwide and Ultra Records in Canada. With 15 tracks, the album features notable guest contributions from artists such as Anderson .Paak, Vic Mensa, Little Dragon, Syd, Craig David, AlunaGeorge, and BadBadNotGood. It garnered significant acclaim, winning the 2016 Polaris Music Prize and securing the Electronic Album of the Year at the 2017 Juno Awards.

Initially planned as an EP under the tentative title “So Bad,” the project evolved into a full-length album after Kaytranada signed with XL Recordings in 2014. The singles “Leave Me Alone,” featuring Shay Lia, and “Drive Me Crazy,” featuring Vic Mensa, set the tone for the album, showcasing Kaytranada’s signature sound.

The official title, “99.9%,” was announced on 7 September 2015. The album’s name reflects Kaytranada’s musical journey and the dissatisfaction and indecisiveness inherent in the creative process. During the buildup to the release, Kaytranada shared insights on the album’s production, including collaborations with BadBadNotGood and Syd.

The album’s singles, including “Glowed Up” featuring Anderson .Paak and “Lite Spots,” received positive reviews. “Glowed Up” debuted on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show and was accompanied by a music video directed by Bo Mirosseni. A unique promotional move was the creation of a video game, “99.9%: The Game,” launched on Kaytranada’s website.

Upon release, “99.9%” received widespread acclaim, with critics praising its genre-defying blend of funk, soul, R&B, and dance music. The album’s success was solidified with the Polaris Music Prize win and recognition at the Juno Awards. Overall, “99.9%” stands as a remarkable debut that showcases Kaytranada’s versatility and innovation in electronic music.
