Kygo, born Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll in Bergen, Norway, broke through with a sound, termed tropical house, that tended to be brighter and more relaxed than that of his commercial dance music contemporaries. In 2013, the Avicii-inspired producer and DJ reached number one on Norway's VG-lista chart with his slow-galloping remix of Seinabo Sey's "Younger." He gained additional attention through remixes of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" and Ed Sheeran's "I See Fire." Signed to an international deal with Sony that placed him on RCA in the U.S. and on Syco in the U.K., he released his first proper single, "Firestone," in 2014. Featuring a lead vocal from Conrad Sewell, the song not only went to number one in Norway but reached the Top Ten in several other territories. The following year, the Parson James collaboration "Stole the Show" was Kygo's second consecutive solo number one hit in Norway. Later that year, "Nothing Left," featuring Will Heard, became his third Norwegian chart-topper. After working for a year and a half, Kygo's debut full-length album, Cloud Nine, was slated for release in early 2016, and featured the three singles released in 2015 as well as one more, "Stay," which featured emerging vocalist Maty Noyes. The album's release was pushed back, but by way of sweetening the bad news Kygo released three more promotional singles throughout early 2016. The first, "Fragile," was a collaboration with English singer and producer Labrinth. The second and third, "Raging" and "I'm In Love," featured vocals from Kodaline and James Vincent McMorrow repectively. ~ Andy Kellman
