KYGO Third Album “Golden Hour”

Traditionally, the golden hour marks either the first hour of light after sunrise or the last hour of light before sunset. In both cases, it heralds a change. Representing another new dawn, global superstar, producer and DJ, Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll – a.k.a Kygo, has today released his aptly-titled third full-length album Golden Hour via Sony Music International/Ultra Records/RCA Records. The album features 18 songs including previously released singles “The Truth” with Valerie Broussard, “Lose Somebody” with OneRepublic, “Freedom” with Zak Abel, “I’ll Wait” with Sasha Sloan, “Like It Is” with Zara Larsson and Tyga, and “Higher Love” with Whitney Houston, the latter of which has more than 651 million audio and video streams combined and charted at Top 40 radio. Full album tracklisting below. Kygo kicked off his album release day with performances of “Lose Somebody” with OneRepublic and “The Truth” with Valerie Broussard on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series. During 2018, Kygo began to assemble what would become Golden Hour between a marathon of touring. While writing music throughout the year, he simultaneously partnered with Sony to launch his own label and management company, Palm Tree Records. Taking an active role in signing and promoting artists, songwriters, and producers, he hit his stride in the studio alongside Palm Tree talent, including Petey, Nick Furlong, Valerie Broussard, Dreamlab and Tom Martin. This “family” approach added a new dimension to the process. “I was fortunate enough to work with some of my favorite artists and writers on Golden Hour,” said Kygo. “There are quite a few songs on the album where I had the chance to collaborate with our team. These are artists I believe in. Working with some of my favorite up-and-coming musicians really made these songs special for the album.” Golden Hour also sees Kygo’s genre-breaking vision come to life. His single “Like It Is” with Zara Larsson and Tyga spotlighted co-production by Petey and represented another progression by incorporating hip-hop verses. Kygo’s melodies, airy drums, and delicate piano locked into a matchmade in heaven with Zara Larsson’s voice as Tyga turned up on a nimbly rhymed cameo. On its heels, he reunited with Sasha Sloan for the soulful tropical house anthem “I’ll Wait.”

Elsewhere, “Freedom” with Zak Abel elevated his signature sound with a steeple-size vocal performance from Abel; Tom Martin co-wrote “To Die For;” Valerie Broussard co-wrote “Don’t Give Up On Love” and “The Truth,” the latter of which she also lends her vocals on; and Nick Furlong co-wrote “Say You Will” and “Someday.” “Someday” was also co-written by Zac Brown who lends his vocals to the track. These 18 songs illuminate the scope of Kygo’s creativity and the bold breaking light of Golden Hour. “With every album or next song I’m working on, I always try pushing myself to evolve and experiment with new ideas,” he goes on. “I couldn’t be more proud of these 18 songs. It was really hard to narrow the final tracklist to just 18. The album has a few songs that are more up-tempo than my earlier albums, but still have the classic ‘Kygo’ sound.” Kygo will perform Golden Hour in its entirety during his virtual Golden Hour Festival presented in partnership with live streaming entertainment leader LiveXLive and Palm Tree Crew today at 4PM ET. The event will be broadcasted on Kygo’s YouTube channel powered by LiveXLive. Fans can also watch on @KygoMusic and @LiveXLive social channels including Twitch, TikTok and Facebook, as well as on LiveXLive’s apps and website.

Kygo has also partnered with Calm, the No. 1 app for sleep, meditation andrelaxation, to create a custom 60-minute “Golden Hour” mix exclusively available on the platform. The special release, which is coming soon, will include instrumentals and remixes from Golden Hour and past projects, as well as relaxing piano segments.

He emerged as Spotify’s “Breakout Artist of 2015” powered by “Firestone”[feat Conrad Sewell] and “Stole the Show” [feat. Parson James]—certified gold or platinum in sixteen countries. These smashes cemented him as “the fastest artist to reach 1 billion streams on Spotify.” Kygo earned one of his biggest hits with the multiplatinum “It Ain’t Me” [feat. Selena Gomez], going Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 and clocking nearly 1 billion Spotify streams. He maintained his momentum on the Stargazing EP and second album, Kids In Love.

Other collaborations include mega-hits with U2, Imagine Dragons, The Chainsmokers, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, and Chelsea Cutler. In 2019, Kygo unleashed “Higher Love” with Whitney Houston and generated another 1 billion combined streams and views in addition to leaving his imprint on a classic. He heralded his 2020 third full-length album Golden Hour [Sony Music International/Ultra Records/RCA Records] with the anthems “Like It Is” [with Zara Larsson & Tyga] and “I’ll Wait” [with Sasha Sloan]. Now, Golden Hour signals Kygo’s brightest moment yet.

Duke Dumont’s Debut – “Duality’

DUKE DUMONT UNVEILS DEBUT ALBUM DUALITY

THE 10 TRACK RELEASE INCLUDES HIT SINGLES “THERAPY,” “THE POWER” AND “LET ME GO”

 

BUY/STREAM DUALITY HERE

Multi-platinum hit-maker Duke Dumont has released his highly anticipated debut album DUALITY. Listen HERE.

Channeling his years of experience into a cohesive record that epitomizes his core beliefs, DUALITY is an honest, cathartic expression of Dumont’s desire to embody the mentality of a true artist, liberated from genre specifics and scored with his own sonic fingerprint.

With the LP split into two halves – one dancefloor-oriented and one introspective – it’s heart on sleeve, vocal house record “Therapy” opens proceedings, a track that was released as a single at the start of the year. Next up is club anthem “The Power,” a collaboration with UK singer-songwriter Zak Abel that was also released as a single, and “Obey,” a cut that sees Dumont link up with New Jersey artist Roland Clark. With no fewer than six collaborations across the LP, “The Fear” and “Nightcrawler” then feature US singer, songwriter and pianist Niia and Australian duo Say Lou Lou respectively.

The second half of the record is where Dumont’s more introspective and personal tracks blossom. There is an appearance from Colorado singer-singer songwriter How to Dress Well on “Together,” before latest single “Let Me Go” an emotion-drenched track stitched together with the soaring vocals of Australian artist Ry X, closes things out in the most poignant way possible.

The ten-track release is a long-player in the traditional sense, produced to be listened to in its entirety, rather than a collection of radio-friendly singles. Besides his own production and vocal features, the album incorporates live string arrangements, guitar players, drummers, and piano keys.

A production dynamo responsible for a stunning back catalogue that includes international chart-topping hits, multi-Grammy nominations and bumpin’ Chicago-influenced underground productions, Dumont is a contemporary electronic music powerhouse. He has amassed over 2.5 billion streams across his back-catalogue of previous anthems, scoring platinum-selling UK #1s with timeless records such as “Ocean Drive.”

A career-affirming release, DUALITY is a staggering album and the culmination of all of Duke Dumont’s previous work.

DUALITY Tracklist:

Therapy

The Power (feat. Zak Abel)

Obey (feat. Roland Clark)

The Fear (feat. Niia)

Nightcrawler (feat. Say Lou Lou)

Ocean Drive (Reprise)

Together (feat. How To Dress Well)

Love Song

Overture

Let Me Go (feat. RY X)

About Duke Dumont:

Duke Dumont is a contemporary electronic music powerhouse. Deeply committed to creating high quality music imbued with emotional depth, Dumont is versatile, extremely adept and hard working. His illustrious career has taken him on tour around the world, many times over, and placed him in the top tier of electronic music artists of his ilk.

Since 2007 Duke Dumont has channeled his deep love for electronic music into a variety of acclaimed releases, moving through pumping electro and vibrant techno to conquer the UK charts with “Need U 100%.” His early releases on Tiga’s Turbo Recordings helped establish his reputation for producing high quality club music that moves the dance floor, physically and emotionally. By 2012 he’d produced two career-defining EPs – For Club Use, Vol 1 and For Club Use, Vol 2. Tracks like “The Giver” cemented Dumont’s rep for catchy hooks, precision arrangement and powerful emotion. A year later he hit the No.1 spot in the UK charts with “Need U (100%) (featuring A*M*E),” demonstrating his ability to merge classic house motifs with first-rate songwriting. 

“Need U (100%)” was followed with another UK No.1 “I Got U,” both songs achieving platinum sales. Between 2013 and 2020 he hit the Billboard Dance Chart No.1 with seven singles, including “The Power,” “Won’t Look Back” and “Ocean Drive.” With each release Duke Dumont stayed true to his club roots, achieving widespread success.

MULTI-PLATINUM HITMAKER JONAS BLUE & POP SUPERSTAR PALOMA FAITH UNVEIL NEW COLLAB TRACK “MISTAKES”

JONAS BLUE TO PERFORM AT EDC LAS VEGAS ON MAY 16

Watch The Lyric Video Here

Following blockbuster careers led by global smash singles, billions of streams worldwide and platinum albums the UK’s leading producer/songwriter Jonas Blue and UK superstar Paloma Faith, have unveiled their electrifying collaborative new single “Mistakes.” Listen to the track and watch the lyric video HERE via Astralwerks.

Coming together naturally, Jonas and Paloma are the perfect pairing. After long admiring each other’s output, and both having a desire to someday work together, “Mistakes” now arrives as their collaborative hit-in-waiting. Speaking of the track, Jonas comments; “Mistakes is such a special one for me, I’ve wanted to work with Paloma for a long time, and this just connected the dots for us to be able to collaborate in a perfect way. I’m happy I managed to get some influences in there from my UK House and Garage upbringing too.” Paloma adds; “I feel so excited about ‘Mistakes.’ I am a huge fan of MNEK who co-wrote the song and of the dance power of Jonas. I can’t help but move to this tune. It’s a banger!”

Jonas Blue will arrive stateside once again for a performance at the famed Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas on Saturday, May 16—the performance marks a mighty return as Jonas made his U.S. festival debut at EDC Las Vegas just three years ago.

The Ocaso Underground Music Festival (www.OcasoFestival.com), is returning to Costa Rica for the fourth year in a row and announced today all new food and art experiences for ticket holders to enjoy every night January 9th – the 13th at the La Senda Retreat (www.LaSendaCostaRica.com), in Tamarindo, CR.  

Healthy food and lifestyles have always been pillars of the Ocaso Festival mantra, and as such a very special nightly international food experience has been added to the festivities.  Under the direction of Costa Rican Chef Pablo Bonilla – of Sikwa and Francisca and recently written about in Forbes and National Geographic, will be leading a team of chefs from Chile, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Guatemala, El Salvador and the US. Each day, one international chef will be teamed up with some of Costa Rica’s best local chefs to provide a unique culinary experience each day of the festival.  A rundown of the chefs is as follows:

Guest chefs 

Ariel Millaman (Chile) 

Cesar Zapata (Colombia/USA)

Gabriela Guaimare (Venezuela/Spain)

Mauricio Barbón (El Salvador/Peru) 

Néstor Sical (Guatemala) 

Pablo Díaz (Guatemala) 

Stephanie Bonnin (Colombia/USA)

Local Chefs

Andres Sandoval (El Gallo Rojo, CR) 

Diego Hernández (Sikwa/Francisca, CR) 

Gilberto Briceño (Las Catalinas, CR) 

Hugo Gutiérrez (Cala Luna/La Senda, Mexico/CR)

María Elena Espinosa (Guaitil, CR)

In addition to the dishes of our visiting chefs, Bonilla will also be teaming up with Maikol Acuña, executive chef of Alma de Amón in San Jose, to provide a solid menu of regional street food that festival-goers can sample each day of Ocaso. 

“In keeping with the culture and mission of Ocaso, we want all of our food to be locally sourced, organic, and purchased from sustainable farms,” stated Bonilla. “Our amazing international chefs will be displaying ancestral techniques in the preparation of their dishes. In striving to show respect for their local cuisine, it is important for us to provide them with the best products available – and to us that means organic and sustainable.”
