It was only a matter of time before Norwegian producer/DJ/remixer extraordinaire Kygo got busy releasing his own original material.
After amassing something absolutely ridiculous like 100 million plays across Soundcloud and YouTube thanks to his remixes of Coldplay, James Blake, Rihanna, Matt Corby, Passenger, Marvin Gaye, The XX, M83, The Weeknd and heaps more, the 23 year old is doing his own damn thing.
Firestone featuring Australia’s very own Conrad with the vocal assist is the first taste off the new project and like all of Kygo’s work that has come before it, it is an epic slice of downtempo electronica.
He might have used a lot of big names to help get his own name out there, but if he keeps dropping heat like this, it won’t take long before the next generation of bedroom producers are remixing him in order to cop more spins.
Bonus beats - Here’s a mixtape that features a whole bunch of Kygo’s remixes in one handy spot. We’ve gotta say it mixes cheesy and Balearic sickeningly well!
