Ellie Meets Dance Superstar KYGO
Tipped by Billboard Magazine as the ‘the next EDM superstar’, Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, a.k.a KYGO, has gone from bedroom producer to one of the most hyped electronic artists on the planet in unprecedented time. Having established himself as a household name thanks to his widely popular remixes, sell out shows in North America and Europe as well as headline performances at festivals including TomorrowWorld and Findings, KYGO signed a worldwide recording deal with Sony Music Entertainment in September.
His first original track ‘Firestone’, released at the end of 2014, has now amassed over 7 million plays across SoundCloud and YouTube and over 40 million plays on Spotify, peaking at #4 in the worldwide Spotify chart. With a hotly anticipated album scheduled for 2015, plus a new live show experienced due to be unveiled at Ultra Music Festival, this is only the beginning for this 24 year old Norwegian prodigy.
In his latest single he has teamed up with former X Factor star Ella Henderson for the utterly brilliant ‘Here For You’ which is available on Itunes now.
