Kygo has been keeping fairly busy throughout 2019 so far, releasing a handful of originals and collaborations as well as enlisting Galantis, R3HAB and now Nicky Romero for dancefloor-ready remixes. Romero got to remix "Carry On" featuring vocals from Rita Ora, released mid-April and featured in the POKÉMON: Detective Pikachu film.
Nicky Romero (real name Nick Rotteveel van Gotum), approaches remixing "Carry On" with real intention. Keeping the anthemic yet soothing vibe of the original intact, he makes good use of it, speeds up the vocal and offers a brighter and more energetic production. The tropical influence is evident at the start, as the emotions slowly build up reaching towards the buildup. The drop explodes into an anthemic, progressive house vibe perfect for the mainstage as well as classy enough for casual headphone listening.
Kygo (real name Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll) has transcended into one of the most influential figures in both the electronic and pop music space in recent years. He has garnered billions of streams across platforms and performed at major festivals all over the world, in addition to holding a club residency in Las Vegas at Encore Beach Club. Some of the artists he has worked with include Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez, Imagine Dragons and Miguel.
