Norwegian superstar Kygo continues to go from strength to strength as his support around the world grows exponentially with each passing year. His ‘Kids In Love‘ album last year was a smash success, with every single track bringing in millions of streams. Following on from this success, Kygo has now released an exceptional remix album featuring a number of high-profile stars who have each put their own spin on many of the best-loved hits.
The remix album kicks off with a stunning Gucci Mane edit of ‘This Town‘, with the original having actually been released on Kygo’s ‘Stargazing EP‘. The edit faultlessly blends Gucci Mane and Sasha Sloan‘s vocals to create an absolutely enchanting result, retaining the atmosphere of the original. Up next, Jack Wins effortlessly fuses ‘Never Let You Go‘ with tropical house influences, creating a level of power that resonates throughout the remix. Giving listeners another take on ‘Never Let You Go’, the remix album also features an acoustic version of the track, highlighting John Newman‘s captivating vocals, creating a highly emotive result.
Ryan Riback gives ‘Riding Shotgun‘ a new lease of life, with heavenly chord progressions that showcase Bonnie McKee‘s vocals while injecting a spurt of sprightly energy. Using uplifting effervescent synths to make the original even more euphoric, Norwegian star Alan Walker provides his own take on ‘Stranger Things‘, creating an anthem characteristic with his previous releases and iconic signature style.
Filled with future house-infused elements, The Him put their own stamp on ‘Kids In Love‘, abundant with enchanting chord progressions, faultlessly blending with vocals from The Night Game. Brazilian icon Alok is up next, with a mellow yet atmospheric remix of ‘Kids In Love’, showcasing the vocals in truly stunning style. ‘Kids In Love’ is the second track to be adapted into an emotive acoustic version, stripped back flawlessly by Kygo himself, with the vocals and piano elements taking center stage. Finishing off the remix album in sensational style, Sam Feldt adapts ‘Permanent‘ into an melodic masterpiece, featuring a progressive drop which injects a cheery yet ferocious energy to the original.
