Zitat des Tages von Kygo:
Edinburgh is where I started. A lot of the remixes I made were done in my room there, and it was a good place for me to make music.
I like to try to keep my music happy because it can make other people happy. And that's the way I feel when I listen to Avicii's songs. I get happy because his melodies are so happy.
SiriusXM has had my back ever since day one when I was making remixes in my dorm room at university, and it means a lot that they're supporting my music as I prepare to release my debut album, 'Cloud Nine.'
It's kind of hard when you're on the road all the time, from one show to the next, from one hotel room to the next hotel room, it's kind of hard to think about everything.
I don't really know too many designers. I like a lot of what Kanye West has done with Yeezy, but I think it's a bit too, how you say, elevated; it's a little bit too special. Like he's trying to make something that's kind of a little bit too cool sometimes.
I started taking piano lessons from the age of six years old. It's such an essential part of what I do in the production process. I wouldn't be Kygo today without those piano lessons.
I get a lot of demos sent my way, and I listen to them, and sometimes they just have something very special.
What I really enjoy and what I do in the studio is play keyboard.
I wouldn't be where I am without my fans, and I am very thankful for them.
'Coming Over' was probably the fastest collaboration I've ever done.
I've been so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with some incredibly talented vocalists, guitarists and producers, and I can't wait to share more originals in the future.
The opportunity to be a part of the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in Rio is a huge milestone in my career, and it will be the biggest performance of my life.
It's kind of crazy to see how many people actually listen to my music.
I just wanted to make melodies. I started trying to do my own thing and let the melodies make the genre themselves.
My biggest influence growing up was Avicii, who put me onto creating the sorts of melodies that feature throughout my songs today.
Making music all the time was my dream.
I just want to keep challenging myself and keep, like, trying new things.
There's nothing like playing at home.
Lemaitre has been one of my inspirations ever since I started making music.
I get into a zone where I'm really in my own world when I make music.
I've been a sports fan forever.
When I look for people to work with, I'm just looking for talented people.
I feel like music can affect you in so many ways. When you hear a song with a happy melody, it can change your mood; it can change your day.
I think people were looking for something new in the EDM scene and found it in my music.
When I get up there, maybe I'm nervous for the first song, but then I get into it. It's a lot of fun to stand up there. I always enjoy the moment when I'm actually standing on stage. When I'm done, I'm like, 'Oh, I want to play one more song.'
I just like playing songs with happy vibes and good feelings.
People don't really listen to albums anymore. They just find good songs.
Edinburgh has a similar climate to Bergen - it's very rainy and grey. There were a lot of days I'd sit inside in front of the computer, make music, and dream about summer - instead of the rainy reality outside.
I am proud to perform at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert.
All my collaborations happen in different ways. Sometimes it's through a chance meeting at a festival or event, while others can happen just off the back of me liking their music and reaching out.
I'm so happy people have enjoyed listening to my tracks.
I do have in the back of my head that you never know how long it lasts.
When I make a song, I'm really happy. It's an indescribable feeling.
I don't want to make just tropical house. I want to make everything, just like, whatever I feel like making.
I feel like when I get the demos - I get a lot of demos - but when I get the right demo, I get very inspired. I produce around it, and it often goes very fast.
I called it 'Cloud 9' because that's the place I want to take people when they are listening to my music. It's also where I am when I make music.
