Hailing from Stockholm, the now Los Angeles based mastermind KONO is back with his latest single, “If I Ever” feat. Carl Martin. Having worked alongside major artists Havana Brown, Big Sean, J Lo, Ace of Base, Robin Thicke, Tiglerlilly and more, KONO’s reprotoire of sultry bass beats are that of sheer production maturity. Keeping his island vibes going with the newest track, “If I Ever”, this vocal powerhouse is jammed with just the right amount of backbeat fire to carry it to the top of everyones playlist. Sampling lyrics from the 1991 Shai release “If I Ever Fall in Love”, KONO does a fantastic job adhearing to the song’s original foundation yet adding the ideal cocktail of synth progressions to modernize a worthy 2017 remix.
Getting his start in the industry with the remix of Ed Sheeran’s Billboard hit “Shape of You“, KONO means business with his tropical beats and accomplished deep house medleys. Both “If I Ever” and “Shape of You” have given him the perfect debut to hone in on his skills and become an instant EDM classic. That being said, if “If I Ever” highlights any indication as to where his music is headed, he’s certainly on the track towards a successful career.
Take a listen to “If I Ever”, available now on Spotify, Applemusic, and iTunes.
