Hope you’ve been enjoying the crazy hot heat wave we’ve had this last week as much as I have. Although it’s a bit more difficult to handle with pregnancy I’ve loved the sunshine and the positive vibe that it brings.
This weeks Music Monday is a track that comes from Norwegian DJ, producer Kygo and American Rock Pop band Imagine Dragons. Born to Be Yours has so many mellow vibes. It might be seen as a strange pairing but Kygo has been known to love the band for many years, and the song cleverly has the perfect mix of the unmistakable sounds of both artists in this song.
The track was released really recently in early June and has already reached top 10 in several countries. It’s refreshing sound comes from a fusion of chilled beats, Kygo’s Tropic House Music and melodic vocals laid over the top. It’s one that you’ll want to keep listening to this summer and will remind you of summer time adventures for many years to come.
Let me know what tracks you’ve been listening to this week in the comments below or over on Twitter.
Happy Bank Holiday Monday! I really hope you’re enjoying the long weekend and looking forward to the 4-day week ahead! Even though the weather is a little colder than we’d like I’ve had the windows open and the music on as this song from Kygo featuring Ellie Goulding dropped on Friday and I’ve been loving it.
I’ve written about my love for Kygo in the past, and his flavour of Tropical House was the soundtrack to much of my summer holiday in Mexico last year. It’s great to hear new tracks from him, and even better that he’s teamed up with another of my favourite artists Ellie Goulding on this new track. I was lucky enough to see Ellie live at the O2 last year and it was an incredible night!
Their new track together is called First Time and recalls early teenage memories of wild nights and young love, something I think we can all relate to! The tune features Kygo’s distinct tropical beats coupled with her angelic, refreshing voice over the top. The song is short but sweet, but I love the cool summer evening vibe that it brings and I’m looking forward to more of this and the nights get longer and this year’s summer adventures begin!
Take a listen below and Tweet me and let me know what’s been on your speakers this week.
Kygo is a Norwegen born DJ and producer, known for almost single-handedly bringing the genre of Tropical House to the mainstream over the past couple of years with tunes that remind me of being on a beach or laying beside a pool.
He started remixing tracks in 2013 and last year released his debut album Cloud 9 which was an enormous hit around the world. But I’m happy to see he’s not resting, and just released a new single It Ain’t Me with Selina Gomez on vocals.
The tune features Kygo’s trademark sound, with melodic pianos, choppy sampled vocals and according to a tweet by Vin Diesel his voice is also hidden in the track somewhere too!
