Norwegian overnight superstar producer and DJ Kygo exploded on the world's radar this year through a series of viral remixes. Showcasing his signature tropical house style the young producer remixes classics like Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” or M83’s “Wait” and new tracks like Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire”, Coldplay’s “Midnight”, Seinabo Sey’s “Younger” and even “Cut Your Teeth” by Kyla La Grange’s just to name a few.
Kygo is coming off the heels of two sold out tours, and countless festival plays including a main stage performance at TomorrowWorld, all strictly off of his remixes, no originals. That is, until now. Today we get a preview of his debut original single, “Firestone” featuring some smooth vocals from emerging singer Conrad. From this release it sounds like Kygo has successfully replicated the sound he became known for through his remixes in an original. The song is set to release Monday, December 1st.
We get to hear the song 1 min and 43 secs into an action packed video of the North American leg of his Endless Summer tour. We see footage of a few of his most pivitol US shows to date; including the rooftop of Brooklyn nightclub Output, The Fonda Theatre in LA and the legendary TomorrowWorld performance, with commentary from Kygo interjected throughout. Watch below while soaking in the rising star's very first original.
Today we are very excited to bring you one of the hottest releases from highly acclaimed bay-area house label, dirtybirdy records.

Last month Chance the Rapper released details about his newest project, a brand new full-length album centered around his trumpet player in “The Social Experiment” band. Nico Segal aka Donnie Trumpet, is here to tell his story with Chano by his side. The album is going to be called Surf and today we get the first song “Sunday Candy”.
The song's sounds feature some impressive drums and horns as expected, with some guest vocals from Jamila Woods adding just the right edge.
This is what Nico had to say about the track: "It's my curation, but then bringing it to the table with all these beautiful people and including them in their own way. Jamila sang on that hook, then I brought it to the collective. Peter added some great layers of texture and helped produce, Nate added a bunch of drums, tons of our friends from Chicago played instruments and added their ideas."

Probably the most exciting supergroup to take the electronic world by storm this year is the colossal duo Jack Ü. Fresh off their Power 106 hip-hop mix, Skrillex and Diplo have unveiled the official video for their hit single “Take Ü There” featuring the amazing Canadian singer Kiesza.
The video showcases the rowdy energy at the first live Jack Ü performances; an awesome on-stage perspective whether you were able to catch them this year or not. If there's one thing these two kings of EDM know how to do better then most, it's put on a damn good show. The other elements of the video really kick it up a notch. The layers of animation are at times extra weird, and at times funny (watch out for Skrilly's pizza toss at 3:12); but always interesting. Stream the video below. Enjoy
