Oh Kygo, when are you ever going to make a production I don't like? In case you guys  haven't  heard, our beloved  Norwegian prodigy is back - this time with a smooth, sultry rendition of Coldplay's new single "Midnight."

Midnight (Kygo Remix) - Coldplay

Pretty damned sexy, amirite? The original version of this song is already one of my favorites of the year, and I knew the second I saw Kygo's name on the remix that this was going to be a quality production. He starts off his version by making a smooth, sexy, R&B-inspired melody using the classic sound effect that we hear in all of his songs. Then, the juicy part. Transitioning to the lovely, minimal breakdown Kygo mixes in effortlessly the haunting vocals of Chris Martin into an almost tribal drum pattern, leading eventually into a smooth house-y tune. If you don't want to groove while listening to this, then I don't know what to say! Enjoy the music, lovelies.
