Kygo, the 23 year old Norwegian producer /DJ, has sprung to international prominence following a series of high profile and hugely successful remixes for artists including Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, Passenger, The Weeknd and Marvin Gaye.  His remix of ‘I See Fire’ by Ed Sheeran has been played over 11 million times on Soundcloud making it one of the top ten most played tracks on the platform.  It has also been played more than 40 million times on YouTube. The Kygo official channel on Soundcloud has had over 80 million plays.  He has recently been playing major European festivals such asTomorrowland and Findings, and was recently asked by Chris Martin  to do official remixes for Coldplay (‘Midnight’).

His new long term deal with Sony Music will see him producing original solo material which is expected for release in late 2014 when he will also be undertaking his first solo tour of North America and Europe. This will include 18 sold out shows in the US where he will be released in partnership with Ultra.
