It has been a remarkable story thus-far for international sensation Kygo. From gathering millions of plays between remixes and originals, to crushing venues and festival stages across the globe, the young Norwegian has crossed well into the industry's mainstream and shows no sign of letting up. Kygo's maturing sound is apparent on his last three releases, "Firestone", "Stole the Show", and "Nothing Left" and he could be laying the groundwork for a possible debut album.
While the world waits with anticipation, and high expectations, we hear a new surprising release with iconic NYC rapper Nas that's been labeled a remix, but we’ve gotten word from Kygo’s management that it's actually a collaboration.
"Life's A Bitch," which was first featured on Nas' hit album Illmatic, receives an unexpected revival from Kygo who manages to plant a soothing range of tropical melodies and piano prowess into the original without disrupting the lyrical flow. Though this audible concoction serves as a mere taste of what's to come, Kygo has enticed us once again as we await further news of an official release for this collab and/or album details. Enjoy

22 Year old producer and DJ Justin Jay has been making waves over the past few years, most notably being the youngest artist to ever release on tastemaker house label Dirtybird Records.

Dutch producer San Holo has just came off the release of his "Victory" EP earlier this year, and shows no signs of slowing down. Today we get a new release from the future bass focused artist that is surprisingly being put out by Spinnin, who's typically known for their commercial electro house festival anthems.
Well, he's done it again this time, teaming up with New York vocalist Father Dude on this new single "IMISSU". We get the signature feel good vibes from San Holo, thanks to melodic sytnhs, unique percussion and sensual bass drops, leaving just the right amount of room for Father Dude to come in and complete the track. Stream the premiere of the song below and grab your copy on iTunes September 14th.

He leaves the vocals intact and brings a future bass twists to the instrumental with cinematic drums, building to a drop filled with melodic bouncing chimes and swirling synths combined with the already infectious vocals in an irresistible fashion. Keep an eye on this up and coming producer and enjoy!
