Kygo Shines Bright At ‘Midnight’
Coldplay - Midnight (Kygo Remix)

Rising producer Kygo has put his inimitably chill spin on Midnight, the vocoder-heavy electronic single from Coldplay.

While a lesser artist might shirk at the thought of having to follow the legendary Giorgio Moroder with a remix of the same song, Kygo certainly gives the father of modern dance music a run for his money with a minimal, Balearic take on Coldplay’s brooding single. Furthermore, this is one of Kygo’s first official (that is to say, non-bootleg) remixes–and considering it’s one of the world’s most popular rock bands, it’s safe to say the young Norwegian is on to something.

Stream Kygo’s Midnight remix above, ripped from the premiere Friday, May 9 on Pete Tong’s BBC Radio 1 show. The original mix of Midnight comes from Coldplay’s forthcoming LP, Ghost Stories, out May 19.
