The American Music Awards are coming up shockingly fast. As the year ends, award shows start to crop up every which way. Usually when it comes to music awards there is little love given to the dance music community as a whole. The Grammy’s actually hold almost all the dance music related awards off air.

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.

See how much your favorite DJs have changed over the past 5 years

This post was originally published on this site

While seeing someone like Hardwell or Afrojack at the Ultra main stage today may be a similar experience to what it was in 2012, it cannot be denied that dance music has seen considerable change over the past five years or so. One of the biggest signs has been the willingness of artists to expand their sounds and collaborative choices. For example, Afrojack, who was dropping the crunchiest beats in the game a few years ago, is now working with artists like Ty Dolla $ign and Luis Fonsi to breed mainstream, Top 40 tracks. There’s also the case of The Chainsmokers, who went from remixing popular indie/alternative songs in 2013 to now being arguably the hottest duo in the world right now, topping the charts across all genres in working with Coldplay, Halsey, and others.

Dance music has proven it isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and that it is capable of rapid evolution and reinvention. To prove how much the music has changed over the years, a Facebook page called Revealed Family posted two videos entitled “EDM – THEN vs. NOW.” The videos give a track by track outline of how different music by the top DJs in the game was 5 years ago versus how it is now. There’s a clear difference in sound and production style that should be noticed instantly. The videos include old and new tracks by Nicky Romero, Zedd, R3hab, Avicii, Skrillex, Alesso, Vicetone, Deorro, The Chainsmokers and more.
