Wolf & Shepherd stood next to names like Tom Ford, Prada and Saint Laurent for DJ Kygo’s feature in the July Issue of #Legend Magazine. Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, or Kygo as he is more commonly known, is a 26-year-old Norwegian global phenom who is known for his upbeat, tropical style music. After taking piano lessons from age 6 to 15, Kygo began to experiment by writing and composing his own music. He soon found his niche in electronic music, where he now finds himself among an elite group of DJs.
Kygo’s blow-up to stardom came after he released "Firestone", featuring Conrad Sewell, in 2014. The soundcloud release now has 46.1 million listens. Kygo followed this release by producing more of his own music like “Stole the Show” and by putting out remixes of top songs like Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire”.
Kygo has played at top music festivals like Coachella, Tomorrowland and Ultra and hosted his own festival last summer with the release of his album “Cloud Nine”. Most recently, Kygo collaborated with Ellie Goulding for “First Time” and Selena Gomez for the hit song “It Ain’t Me”.
#Legend’s July feature on Kygo was shot in Studio 60, Los Angeles. Kygo is pictured in a smoky warehouse wearing a pair of Wolf & Shepherd Chelsea Blitz Onyx . The Q&A with the EDM star gave insight into Kygo’s rise to stardom, plans for upcoming shows and background on the Tropical House sound.
