Earlier this summer, Kygo made his highly anticipated return to NYC during Pride Month to share a new live concept called UTOPIA. The event benefitted a number of LGBTQ charities and organizations, and with performances by Kiiara, Cirque du Soleil, JHART, Danny Verde, and more, the show proved to be one of the electronic highlights of the summer. The Jacob Javits Center was buzzing with energy as Kygo and company raised more than $110,000 in donations.

Kygo also debuted his posthumous Whitney Houston hit, “Higher Love” featuring at NYC Pride 20 years after the musical icon performed at the same event. “It was an honor to be a part of it,” said Kygo, “Love is love.” See a clip from UTOPIA below.

Linus Eklöw and Christian Karlsson of Galantis have teamed up with previous Kygo collaborator, Valerie Broussard for a new high-energy dance pop release “Roots,” Galantis’ fourth release of the year.

Broussard’s commanding vocals carry the song from the outset with plucky guitar synth dancing between her lyrics. The song welcomes Galantis back to their pop-directed dance roots with a light melody and a drop that enlists piano and blaring trumpets. “Roots” is a change of pace for the duo, who are most well known for their ability to create uniquely synthesized vocals.

“I’ve always considered myself a bit of a wanderer, and so it surprised me greatly when I started missing Los Angeles while I was away on tour. This song is my love letter to LA, a place I had once considered nothing more than a temporary home, but it’s also about any person or place that makes a life-long traveler want to put down roots,” Broussard says of her songwriting inspiration for the song.

Galantis have released a very distinct collection of releases this year, spanning a OneRepublic collaboration “Bones,” which has gone on to be featured on mainstream radio stations around the world, all of the way to a Yellow Claw collaboration, “We Can Get High.” “Roots” is out now on RCA Records.

Whitney Houston’s estate enlists Kygo to produce first release in a decade, ‘Higher Love’

Whitney Houston’s estate enlists Kygo to produce first release in a decade, ‘Higher Love’Kygo Live

Kygo has paved the way for the tropical house genre, bringing it to the masses thanks to the genre’s wide commercial crossover appeal. The producer has taken another big step in his career after getting his hands on the vocals of none other than musical icon Whitney Houston for his latest, “Higher Love.” Houston died in 2012, and “Higher Love” is the first release featuring her vocals in over a decade. The Houston estate reached out to the Norwegian hit maker, believing he was the right producer to finish and release the track. “Higher Love” is a cover of the 1986 Steve Winwood classic, which celebrated its 33rd anniversary on June 20.

“I was honored when the Whitney Houston estate reached out and presented me with the opportunity to work with one of the greatest female vocalists of all time. I reworked the song from scratch and am really happy with how it turned out,” remarked Kygo on the new release.

Houston’s powerful vocals overtake the listener’s conscious from the onset, rightfully standing as the focal point of the release. In quintessential Kygo fashion, the producer finds a way to let the track maintain a strong production identity without compromising the spotlight on Houston’s coveted vocal work. “Higher Love” will give younger generations a chance to enjoy Houston’s vocals through Kygo’s impressive skills behind the console. “Higher Love” is out now on RCA Records, stream below.

Kygo taps Norwegian rappers Store P and Lars Vaular for ‘Kem Kan Eg Ringe’

Norway’s own Kygo—real name Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll— just released “Kem Kan Eg Ringe,” his first single sung in his native language of Norwegian. The song features two fellow Norwegian rappers, Store P and Lars Vaular, to give the track even more authenticity.

“Kem Kan Eg Ringe” represents both new and familiar sonic territory for Gørvell-Dahll. His signature sound is built around slower tempos, and this track shares that quality, but it also departs from the tropical-house flavor that gave him his notoriety for a pure, piano-driven feel. This more raw approach is the ideal backdrop for the vocals of Store P and Lars Vaular, whose sound is heartfelt and honest.

The first half of 2019 has been rather solid for Gørvell-Dahll. In addition to this latest single, his previous track, “Carry On,” was featured on the original soundtrack for the major motion picture “Pokémon Detective Pikachu.” Prior to that release was his single “Think About You” with Valerie Broussard and an official remix of last year’s hit “Happy Now” from R3hab.
