From: Norway
DJ style: Tropical

This Norwegian bright spark rose up the Top 100 DJs poll over the last three years, but has slipped eight places this year. Kygo may only still be the tender age of 27, but the achievements he’s made since he stormed into the dance music world way surpass his years.

His productions regularly top the charts, including a debut album ‘Cloud Nine’ that included massive collaborations with John Legend, Labyrinth, Tom Odell and Julia Michaels, the latter of which he performed to over 75,000 people at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro...impressive! His second album ‘Kids In Love’ hit the shelves last November and spurred his biggest world tour yet — with 22 shows in ten different countries in Europe alone. Locations included Finland, Denmark, France, Ireland, Canada and the USA. The last few months he’s continued the jet-set life with gigs in New Zealand, Australia, Japan and Korea and more; does Kygo ever stop? We think not...
