Riding high on the release of his Whitney Houston remix "What's Love Got To Do With It", Kygo picks 10Trax that he's got on repeat at the moment.
Always a fan of collaborations and remixes (he’s worked with everyone from Oh Wonder to Tyga, Zara Larsson, Kim Petras and John Legend) the Norwegian DJ and producer has once again sprinkled his magic over a Whitney Houston classic. He’s previously given a new lease of life to Houston’s classic “Higher Love”, but this time it’s “What’s Love Got To Do With It” that gets the Kygo spin. It’s no wonder that the track has been all over the radio and racked up tens of millions of streams in a few weeks.
To celebrate the success of Kygo and Whitney Houston’s summer banger, Kygo picked 10Trax that he’s loving at the moment. Dive in below!
"What's Love Got To Do With It" by Kygo and Tina Turner
"I couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with Tina Turner, who is an icon that I grew up listening to. ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ is one of my all-time favorite songs so to have a chance to rework it has been a very special moment in my career. I love working around timeless vocals and although it’s challenging to preserve elements of the original track and adding my own touch, I’m extremely happy with how it turned out!"
"Calico" by Haux
"Woodson and I recently collaborated for the final track on 'Golden Hour'. His voice is so soothing and smooth on everything he touches. Would love to make more tracks with him in the future."
"Hey Ma" by Bon Iver
"Bon Iver is my all time favorite vocalist and I’ve been a huge fan since the beginning. I can honestly say Justin is one of the most talented artists and I’ve learned alot from his work."
"Heavenly Father (ft Noah Kahan)" by Gryffin
"Dan (Gryffin) has remixed a few of my tracks and I’ve played a lot of his songs in my DJ sets over the years. His music is always melodic and he reminds me a bit of myself with his musician-first approach to production."
"Blinding Lights" by The Weeknd
"“Blinding Lights” has been an anthem this year and a fresh production with insane vocals as we’ve become expecting from any songs with his name attached. Would love to collaborate with Abel one day!"
"No Right To Love You (Acoustic)" by Rhys Lewis
"Rhys and I wrote a song together “Hurting” thats a special one to me. This was one of his first songs that got big on Spotify and its no surprise why when his vocals and guitar are so raw and filled with emotion."
"Heartbreak Back" by Frank Walker ft. Riley Biederer
"This was Frank’s first big single that performed well on Canadian radio. I recently signed him to Palm Tree Records and can’t wait for everyone to hear his upcoming originals!"
"Burn Down This Room" by Ruben
"Ruben is a fellow Norwegian who had an amazing song, “Lay By Me” and recently put out this one which has been one of my favourite songs as of late."
"Half Way Home" by Pines
"'Half Way Home' is off their debut album which came out in May and is an amazing body of work. This one was a single and everyone I’ve shown it to has been a fan."
"ILY" by Surf Mesa
"This song has become a 2020 summer anthem. It’s an amazing rework of a timeless vocal and reminds me of some of my early remixes/productions."
