There doesn’t seem to be any artist or style that Kyrre “Kygo” Gørvell-Dahll (pictured) can’t bend to his will, and his latest offering, a remix of Often by The Weeknd, further demonstrates his versatility.
Bad-boy R&B crooner The Weeknd may seem like an odd choice for a tropical Kygo makeover, but it just works. The young producer’s formula is well established by now–the relaxed tempo, the light percussion, the sunset vibes–but it feels fresh and invigorating every time, because there’s simply no one else in the game right now doing what he does. He may not do it “often,” but we can’t help but come back for more every time he hits us with another breezy gem.
Kygo’s remix of Often is available to download in exchange for some love on Facebook. The Norwegian wünderkind will be cruising around North America on tour this fall with Thomas Jack and Amtrac. Check out the complete list of dates below:
