The tropical house sensation turned piano man has taken another big step in his career. Announcing a Vegas Residency is a milestone many artists strive to achieve. It validates the artist’s work while offering them an opportunity to prove their music to be timeless. Kygo has been at the forefront of many people’s minds recently and this residency is a hat tip from some of the top tastemakers to showcase his talents.
Kygo has been instrumental to the sudden rise in pop inspired electronic music. His tropical house influences can be heard scattered throughout many top 40 tracks, such as Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You”. Some critique has come with the release of Ed Sheeran’s recent ‘÷’ album, namely that “Shape of You” sounds much like Sia’s hit “The Greatest”. However, Sheeran credits Kygo for the marimba inspired leads found in “Shape of You” and “The Greatest”.
