David Guetta & Sia – Flames (Robin Schulz Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Robin Schulz, the German producer widely recognized for his island-channeling guitar riffs, has delivered his warm-weather remix of David Guetta and Sia‘s “Flames.” Guetta and Sia recently reunited for the track to follow up the unearthly success of their 2011 single, “Titanium.”

Schulz offers “Flames” his signature tropical touch, further accentuating Sia’s sweltering vocals. With Guetta’s subtle percussion replaced by Schulz’s momentous drum beats and distorted voice synths, the remix transcends the pop-centric “Flames” into a more forthright dance track.

Schulz secured his consummate remixer status in 2014 after both his renditions of Lilly Wood and The Prick’s “Prayer In C” and Mr. Probz‘s “Waves” went gold and platinum, respectively, topping worldwide charts.

Fresh off of the success of his debut album, Sam Feldt has released an accompanying double project, Sunrise To Sunset. In October 2017, Sammy Renders, better known as Feldt, released a twelve track debut project titled Sunrise.

Now, Feldt is back with more tropical sounds to satisfy his listeners insatiable desire to groove. The album acts as a double feature and includes twelve additional tracks to accompany the Sunrise project. The result: Sunrise To Sunset. On it, Feldt enlists a number of features from artists such as Sam Martin, Otis Parker, and Olivia Sebastianelli.

If listeners were content with the tropically influenced pop ballads on Sunrise, their joy will be doubled when they hear Sunrise To Sunset.

It may be the first day of December, but Schier is bringing warm summer vibes back into the winter months with his new remix for Sam Smyers and M. Maggie. For his rework of “Motion,” Schier has crafted a melodic tropical house song that beautifully plays off of M. Maggie’s smooth vocals. Where the original track had almost a wistful feel to it, Schier has flipped it into a sexy, beach-ready song that would feel right at home in the middle of a Kygo or Thomas Jack set. With an effortless flow, the young producer’s take on “Motion” is sure to transport the listener back to carefree summer festival days.

This post was originally published on this site

For the week preceding the release of his album, Kids In LoveKygo has dropped one track off the LP per day. Set to bow on November 3rd, the tracks released so far have covered a wide range of sounds and genres.

The last track before Kids In Love is released is “I See You” featuring Billy Raffoul, a production that continues the trend of diversity the album is set to debut. “I See You” can only be described as indie rock with its mellow guitar and slow tempo centered around Raffoul’s unique vocals.

The Norwegian producer also announced an accompanying world tour with the album release that is set to kick off in Helsinki, Finland in February of 2018. Pre-sale tickets for his tour are available here with the password “love.”

Kygo releases OneRepublic collaboration and pop-leaning ‘Riding Shotgun’ ahead of album release

This post was originally published on this site

Kygo‘s sophomore album Kids in Love is set for release on November 3, and for a week preceding, the Norwegian producer has been releasing one track a day from the LP. So far, the album is a combination of tropical house and pop with collaborations ranging from John Newman to OneRepublic.

The first three tracks from the album that have been released are the title track “Kids In Love,” “Never Let You Go,” and “Sunrise.” So far, each track has been incredibly different, and the Norwegian producer’s next two releases “Riding Shotgun” and “Stranger Things” continue this trend of diversity.

“Riding Shotgun” opens with Bonnie McKee’s high pitched vocals and then falls into a pop tropical drop. Many of the producer’s recent tracks have leaned pop over electronic, but “Riding Shotgun” has groovy chords and an extended electronic drop while McKee’s catchy vocals are the glue that will appeal to pop lovers.

For his next release titled “Stranger Things,” Kygo partnered with OneRepublic, and the high profile collaboration is almost certainly going to be a radio sensation. The production elements of this track are very subtle with piano and a steady drum beat serving as the backbone of the track while OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder vocals are the focal point.

John Newman and OneRepublic are not new to collaborating with electronic music producers, having previously worked with Calvin Harris and Alesso, respectively. As Kygo continues to roll out tracks ahead of Kids In Love‘s release, it will be interesting to see who else the producer is collaborating with.

Kygo throws curveball with surprise release of new ‘Stargazing’ EP

This post was originally published on this site

When tropical house pioneer Kygo took to Twitter to announce the release of “Stargazing” this Friday, the world thought it would be just another single. This turned out to be wholly inaccurate. Not only did Kygo release “Stargazing” a day early, but, as it turns out, Stargazing is a brand new EP pack.

Included in the exciting new project are high-profile Kygo releases with Selena Gomez, “This Ain’t Me,” the Ellie Goulding-assisted track, “First Time,” and the recent U2 collaboration, “You’re the Best Thing About Me.”

Luckily, the most provocative tracks on the Stargazing EP are the two newest additions. Vocalist Justin Jesso joins on the EP’s eponymous first track for an energetic production that builds beautifully with piano chords and chopped vocals. “This Town,” featuring the calming vocals of Sasha Sloan, is a more chilled out ballad with Kygo’s euphoric key-infused style and tiny hints of his sunset allure.

Many moons ago in October 2013, as one may recall, Kygo added his signature tropical house Midas touch to Henry Green‘s sultry cover of “Electric Feel.” Despite the remix being posted to both YouTube and SoundCloud, Kygo never received official clearance by the record labels in order for the song to end up on streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.

The time has finally arrived four years later where Kygo’s take on “Electric Feel” can be added to any playlist, delivering endless summer vibes for listeners who want to groove to an easy beat, gentle guitar riffs, and soothing vocals. Kygo’s latest addition to Spotify follows the premiere of his documentary, “Stole The Show,” which debuted a couple of weeks ago at NYC’s Metrograph. With the warm remix of Henry Green’s “Electric Feel” resurfacing from the earlier stages of his career, we are reminded once again why we fell in love with Kygo from the start.

‘I still get nervous every time,’ Kygo reflects as documentary gets wide release [Interview]

This post was originally published on this site

Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, better known as the multitalented tropical house pioneer Kygo, premiered his brand new documentary, “Stole The Show,” at NYC’s Metrograph earlier this week in a star studded red carpet roll out. The feature length film, which has now opened in wide release via Apple Music, traces Kygo’s journey from the early stages of making SoundCloud productions in his dorm room to his career-defining performance at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center last year.

Kygo has certainly traveled an accelerated path to stardom, where as Gørvell-Dahll has admitted to thinking that things are moving too fast from time to time.

“I’ve learned so much in the last 3 years,” Gørvell-Dahll told Dancing Astronaut at the premiere. “Everything’s been going so fast, I’ve been traveling around the world meeting so many people working with so many talented artists and I’ve been learning so much.”

After all, it was only three years ago that the now internationally-renowned Norwegian producer was catapulted to fame with his remix of Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire.” Within months, the then-23-year-old was caught in the epicenter of a bidding war between some of the biggest labels in music.

Since the launch of his career, he’s been traveling the globe playing at sold-out, world class festivals like Coachella and Creamfields and even hosted his own Cloud Nine-themed music festival in a castle in Norway.

“I was dreaming about this for 6, 7 years in my bedroom before it happened so now being able to do it, its just kind of unreal,” he said.

While many in the dance music community are quick to criticize those who move swiftly through the creative ranks of music making, often calling them commercial “sell outs” or label hustlers, Kygo has remained uniquely unconcerned with changing trends in the industry, focused instead on doing exactly what he loves and keeping his mind trained “110% on music.”

The Sony Music/Ultra signed producer has used his platform as a pipeline for his unique blend of downtempo, tropical, and happy-chill electronic to reach the masses. With his debut album, Cloud Nine, going platinum in five countries, along with an accompanying 22-city World Tour, and a hallmark closing ceremony performance at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, it’s no wonder the producer has been moving a million miles an hour.

Surprisingly, though, the accoladed producer says, he still gets nervous before performances.

“It’s almost the same because in the beginning,” he says of his nerves.  “I was so nervous… I’d play a show for 200 people and I was shitting my pants I was so nervous. I still get nervous every time, but I feel like I’m more comfortable now,”

“I’m actually enjoying it more when I’m on stage because I don’t think about all the things that can go wrong, I just think about ‘ok I’m up here now I have to enjoy the moment’ so I think I’m able to enjoy it more now than in the beginning.”

So how does an instant tastemaker slow down to reflect on his success? By making a movie, of course.

Released exclusively through Apple Music, the film grants viewers an intimate look into his creative process, from working with the likes of global pop stars from Selena Gomez to Ellie Goulding. Featuring testimonials from his manager, Myles Shear, and friends Steve AokiMartin Garrix, and Bono, the documentary fully details the not-so-visible backstage life of the Norwegian artist.

Still, fans are dying to know what’s next for Kygo. Indeed, rumors have abounded on a sophomore LP in the works, which the man himself says is imminent.

“My plans are just to make a lot of music, hopefully I’ll get that album out and go on a world tour,” he says. “That’s the goal.”

“There’s definitely a lot of people that I want to work with. I have this song with John Newman I’m very excited about. Other than that I’m not gonna spoil too much, but I have some cool stuff in the making.”

For long time fans of this enigmatic and prolific producer, that’s easy to believe.
