Kygo + Anna Lunoe at Fonda Theatre – October 12th
Hailing from Bergen, Norway, at only 22-years-old, Kygo, is a musical talent gifted beyond his years. Over the past few months we have seen the young star rise, turning in chart topping tracks, from taking on the likes of Passenger, Ellie Goulding, and The XX. With his roots in classical piano training and a desire to deliver unique sounds inspired by the the refreshing summer rays and carefree spirit of the summer-tide, Kygo is a climbing young talent with a repertoire of new music he is ready to present to the world over the next few months.
He is best known for his remix of the track “I See Fire”, which has been played 8 million times on Soundcloud and around 40 million times on YouTube. He has accumulated over 80 million views on his music on Soundcloud and YouTube. After a break-through in 2014, Kygo was asked by Coldplay vocalist Chris Martin to create a remix for the song “Midnight”
His remix of “I See Fire” entered Romania’s Top 40 and has remained there for 14 weeks, peaking at Number 2 as of June 3rd, 2014.
Artist, DJ, & radio-host, Anna Lunoe has not stopped moving in the last few years. Whether traveling around the world thrilling club and festival crowds, collaborating with and lending vocals to some of the freshest names in dance music, writing her own productions, or simply busting trademark moves in front of the decks, Anna embodies an energy sought by many but achieved by few. Her upcoming #‘All Out Fall Out’ tour should give North America another glimpse at what makes this Aussie transplant one of electronic music’s most interesting & exciting rising stars to watch.
‘All Out’ is the buzzing lead single from Anna’s new EP available now. A sumptuous summer jam, ‘All Out hits like a breath of fresh air, replete with some serious house and two-step underpinnings.
Anna’s first critically acclaimed EP, Anna Lunoe & Friends, was released on Future Classic in 2012. This release featured her joining forces with electronic stars Flume and Touch Sensitive and stayed at the top of the Beatport Indie Club chart for close to four months. Such began her history of thoughtful, progressive collaborations with artists on the cusp of worldwide explosion. Most recently this was demonstrated by Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs partnering with Anna to inaugurate his Nice Age Label, with their single ‘Feels Like’. The explosive house record received wide support from influential UK DJ’s like Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Monki, Eats Everything & Shadow Child. Another release highlight for Anna this year was her undeniable single ‘B.D.D.’ on Skrillex’s Nest imprint earlier this summer, a slab of late-night dance-floor mayhem, it immediately became the label’s most listened to release to date.
The All Out EP follows a mad-cap 12 month run for Anna. She’s made stops at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Electric Forest, Splash House, supported The Weeknd and has a set of tour dates with Kygo coming up this month. All of this has Anna and her quickly growing fanbase well prepared her very own #AllOutFallOut headline tour that is about to storm through sweaty nightspots across the country.
