Breakout Norwegian superstar producer and DJ Kygo has blossomed before our very eyes in 2014 including an international album deal with Sony / Ultra, every show on his headlining US tour selling out, and some unreal collaborations brewing.
The young artist has just secured one of his biggest moments yet, a main stage slot at the 2nd annual TomorrowWorld next week, filling in for international powerhouse producer Avicii. This comes after Avicii was forced to cancel all future dates due to health concerns leaving TomorrowWorld fans curious on who would fill the slot.
Kygo is confirmed to be playing TomorrowWorld on Friday, September 26th from 6:15 – 7:15pm on the Main Stage. This is a set you can't afford to miss if you're making the trip to Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia for summers last noteworthy music festival.
This is quite the upgrade for everyone who tends to hang around the main stage and might not be aware of Kygo's unique brand of Tropical House vibes. You won't find any big room or progressive house builds here, just pure summer-time bliss like the Diplo & Friends mix featured below that Kygo created this year.
With the unreal momentum Kygo has going for him right now, what could possibly be next?
Also his newest North American Endless Summer Tour is kicking off at the end of the month with only a couple dates with any tickets remaining.

Coldplay are making quite a splash with their newest artist album Ghost Stories set to release May 19th. We have a preview of Giorgio Moroder's incredible remix of the lead single "Midnight" from last week as well as "Magic" from the record. Today we receive "A Sky Full Of Stars", Coldplay's collaboration alongside Swedish house icon Avicii to hear in full. The live instrument and electronic worlds collide for an impressive progressive house single that's ready to take over both the airwaves and festival set lists. It's safe to say this song will be big. Listen below and you can pre-order your copy apart of the album. Enjoy!

Rumors have been circulating for months over Diplo teaming up with San Diego producer Ookay to take on Avicii's huge summertime single "You Make Me" and flipping it into a certified trap crossover in similar fashion to his remix of Calvin Harris & Florence & The Machine's "Sweet Nothing". The result highlights the upbeat original while laying down some huge high pitched drops that will have you moving uncontrollably. This was just premiered on radio today and the rip is all we have to stream until full release details become available. Enjoy!

Very few posses the skill to take an Avicii tune and bring it into playable Trap territories, but LA producer / graphic novel connoisseur Whiiite has struck gold with his latest touch of the iconic Swede. "Heart Upon My Sleeve" progressive house undertone provided an open canvas for Whiite to add a heavy injection of bass, hype vocal samples, and an wild array of percussion effects. Expect to hear this heater played out by many during the upcoming festival season. Stream the exlsuive premier below and grab a free download on Thissongissick.com. Enjoy
Avicii’s hugely successful single “You Make Me” just got an incredible electro-house sprinkled with nu-disco remix from fresh new 17 year old Melbourne producer Throttle. He layers in some new melodies while arranging the original vocals and piano line perfectly. It leads up to a funky upbeat drop that you can believe came out of Madeon. We have the full stream of the song below and you can support it by purchasing via Beatport.

Avicii played main stage at this year’s Ultra Music Festival and through down a contreversial set debuting tracks off his new album. He collaborated with artists such as country star Mac Davis, bluegrass musician Dan Tyminski, singer Audra Mae, soul artist Aloe Blacc, Incubus guitarists Mike Einziger and Ben Kenney. His set got critsized for having too much of a country and live influence. The live instrumentation may have been a little to overwhelming for the DJ mold seen at Ultra. The funniest part is that people hated on Avicii when he would played “Levels” non stop and other typical house tracks, and now hate on the guy for stepping outside of the box and bringing in live instrumentation to house music.
He just let loose “Promo Mix 2013″ featuring a lot of the tracks he debuted at his live set. The mix basically sounds the Avicii you know with some adiditonal live elements. It spans from progressive house to some gritty electro action. Loving what I have heard so far. Listen and let us know what you think? Enjoy!
Avicii – Promo Mix 2013
Diplo has brought out quite the variety of his friend DJ’s to do guest mixes for his weekly Diplo & Friends Radio Show, yet I don’t think anyone saw this coming. He shockingly brought Swedish superstar Avicii, which Diplo hilariously reassures us how he is indeed friends with Avicii in the mix. Do not worry as the mix starts with 10 minutes of non electronic throw back tracks that might throw some of you off, trust that this is easily one of the best guest mixes we have heard in awhile. The mix quickly progresses to a fitting D.A.N.C.E. by Justice and Eric Prydz throwback. He then moves through a fantastic mix of refreshing disco and unexcepted tracks. He even includes original song from Etta James sampled in Levels. It makes sense that he would showcase his abilities as a DJ and stray away from his typical succescingle progressive house singles. This mix really grounds him as a DJ and shows that he is still very much tapped into the underground, and not a sold out commercial DJ despite his quick rise to worldwide fame. Sit back and really peek into this mix and see a different side of Avicii. Enjoy!
