Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, better known by his stage name Kygo, is a Norwegian DJ, songwriter, and record producer.
He gained international attention with his December 2013 remix of the track "I See Fire" by Ed Sheeran.
You ever listen to some high energy song maybe a hip-hop/pop genre? But then you feel drained after a while and just want to chill out with a cuppa wine? That’s kind of like Kygo for EDM enthusiasts. He makes songs really simple, taking all the complexity and noise out, leaving a pleasing vibe to groove along or chill to.
If you’ve listened to the tracks that have been released in the past few years by mainstream EDM artists, you’ll see that they all follow similar patterns.
Kygo’s music on the other hand somewhat follows similar patterns, but with a different overall flow. He has instilled this new craze of ‘Tropical House’ in fans as well as artists
Listen to the track from his first official album: Cloud 9

Kygo revives songs that are unknown to everyone
Damn, this one is also great! music&video - thanks guys, i can't focus on my work
Still one of the best songs ever created from Kygo, magic.
t was February 2016. I was just beginning the travel phase of my life after working crazy hours for 5 years. I was in Halong Bay, Vietnam on an overnight cruise with 2 New Yorkers, 8 Brits, 1 Chilean, 1 Bavarian-German, a party animal Vietnamese crew and a boat filled with questionable alcohol. Kygo's remix of 'I see Fire' comes on and it was fitting. The 'Misty Mountains' were filled with a cool autumn-like fog. We traversed through the bay like the Black Pearl would the Carribean. I was sitting on the top deck of the boat and as the song transitions out, the now familiar tune of Firestone made its way in. I was floored - what a tune! I remember feeling so free from the worries of the world I had just left behind. The melody took me away and I had never been so happy. I was free from the chains of working 9 months of night work. The stresses and sleep deprivation were long gone. It was then I understood what freedom meant and I relished every moment on that boat. This song has followed me on many travels since. And everytime I hear the melody, it immediately transports me back to Halong Bay 2016. I can see myself there right now. I don't think those memories will ever escape me. From that moment sprung many creative endeavours, like photography and becoming an author. They were endeavours I never thought possible. To me, Firestone isn't just a song. It was a catalyst for the most creative chapters of my life since. I am so grateful for its impact. Thanks Kygo.
The first time I heard this song I was sitting the the back seat of a car during the summer and the sun rays were coming through the mirror, I was young af but the memory just popped in my head so I'd thought I'd share
