One of thatDROP’s 5 artists to watch in 2014Kygo has been living up to the hype, becoming an internet sensation with his remixes of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” and Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire” which have amassed more than 8 million plays on SoundCloud and 40 million watches on YouTube.

Since then the wheels have been in motion.

Kygo as earned his way on the lineups of The Hudson Project, Electric Forest, What The Festival, and Tomorrowland, in addition to announcing his first North American tour while his remix of Syn Cole’s “Miami 82” got picked up by Ultra Records and served as the soundtrack to Ultra Music Festival’s official trailer.

Being featured as the number one artist to keep an eye on in the summer by InTheMix did not hurt either. Add to that his feature on BBC Radio 1Xtra with Diplo & Friends and it is safe to say that the world is taking notice.

All of this led to Coldplay commissioning Kygo to produce the official remix of their hit “Midnight” which has reached #1 on the pop/rock charts and #54 overall on Beatport and climbing.

Dubbed “100% original” by the Mad Decent mogul, Kygo brings a feel good sound that incites pure grooviness.

The sky is the limit right now for Kygo.

  1. what a fucking stupid article. thomas jack? minnesota? Polish? gramatik is already big. this was a waste of internet

  2. Gramatik was the only one I was hesitant to put on here because he has been around so long but his momentum is as strong as ever right now. So in a sense he is exploding, albeit on a larger scale.

    The other three artists are definitely gaining recognition. First time performances at major festivals, new EPs that have been highly successful, and widely consumed podcasts.

    The beautiful thing about music is that there are so many different genres and personal preferences. Tried to touch across the board with this one and all of the 5 artists deserve credit nonetheless.

    Definitely appreciate you taking the time to read though!
