Nick Murphy, the Australian musician formerly known as Chet Faker, has worked his way up to precipitously high festival poster placement in recent years, in part because his approach to music is so fluid and omnivorous. So he likely found a kindred spirit in Kaytranada, the adventurous Canadian producer who has applied his magic touch to a wide range of pop, rap, and dance tracks in recent years. Kaytanada produced “Your Time,” the lead single from Murphy’s new EP Missing Link. The project is named to illustrate the transition between the Chet Faker and Nick Murphy phases of Murphy’s discography, and the song represents a different sort of bridge: between Murphy’s sleek, soulful future-pop and Kaytranada’s fidgety, all-inclusive approach to dance music.
