Kygo wist in korte tijd snel populair te worden met zijn muziekstijl en met zijn nieuwe album 'Kids In Love' probeert hij die populariteit vast te houden. Hij bracht deze binnen zeer korte tijd na zijn ‘Stargazing’ EP uit en hij lijkt ermee te gaan scoren.
Toch heeft hij niet alle muziek zomaar in elkaar gezet. In een interview met Billboard zei hij geïnspireerd te zijn door een aantal andere bekende albums van grote muzikanten toen hij in zijn studio in Noorwegen aan het werk was. Welke dit zijn lees je hieronder.
Michael Jackson - Thriller (1982)
“My older sister was a huge fan of Michael Jackson. I was forced to listen to it on repeat every time we were in the car, but I loved it. It brings back great memories. Since I was 5 or 6 years old, as early as I can remember, until I was 15, she was listening to it all the time. I didn't complain.”
Foo Fighters - The Colour and The Shape (1997)
“When I was a teen, I liked the Foo Fighters a lot. I listened to those tracks like ‘Everlong,’ ‘My Hero.’ Dave Grohl’s vocal is incredible. I saw them play my hometown 10 or 11 years ago. I was so impressed by the whole performance; it made me a bigger fan. [And Grohl] is like a comedian onstage, making 20,000 people laugh while performing. That was impressive.”
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication (1999)
“I was probably around 13 or 14 years old [when] I tried to learn ‘Californication’ on guitar ... That’s one of my favorite riffs. I was in middle school, and just being a piano player wasn’t cool -- it was all about the guitar players in the band. At that time, I regretted playing piano, but right now, I’m very happy I stuck with it.”
Tim Berg (beter bekend als ‘Avicii’) - Seek Bromance (2010)
“At the time, I was composing melodies on the piano, and some of [Avicii’s] melodies sounded similar to some of the tracks I was composing. I didn't have any clue how to [produce music], but I wanted to try it out. [Using] all these melodies I had in my head to make a full song was so much fun.”
Bon Iver - 22, A Million (2016)
“That’s one of my favorite albums of all time. I was listening to it on repeat the whole winter. There’s so many cool effects that I would never think about using in my songs. I definitely get inspired from those tracks, and I was very impressed with the creativity.”
