Norwegian superstar Kygo teams up with fellow countrymen, Alan Walker, to release his remix of‘Tired’ feat. Gavin James.
2016 was undoubtedly the break-through year for Alan Walker, with the release of his first three singles “Faded”, “Sing Me To Sleep” and “Alone”. To date, Alan’s music has been streamed more than 4 billion times worldwide, with his debut single “Faded” recently joining the exclusive list of music videos with more than one billion views on YouTube.
Having kicked off his Ushuaia residency, Kygo will perform a further NINE times on the White Isle during the summer. With two of the biggest songs of the year so far already under his belt in the form of his collaborations with Selena Gomez and Ellie Goulding, Kygo goes back to his roots to remix what is set to be one of the tracks of the summer.
Slushii dropped an official remix for Alan Walker’s “Faded” a little over 9 months ago, and he’s just released a new ‘dubfire’ VIP that has us collectively going wild.
The original featured a much more marshmello-esque sound, with those telltale trap vocal chops and very saccharine synth breaks, with a candy-coated rhythm. While the VIP eventually somewhat devolves back into that sound, the first drop in it is absolutely orgasmic. It brings back memories of some of Never Say Die’s heyday, with melodic hits from 501 and Must Die!… god, I miss that.
Slushii has definitely shown once again that despite his cartoonish avatar, he has the production abilities of a mature musician. Check out the VIP below.
Alan Walker – ‘Faded‘ Official Music Video – In 2015, Alan Walker released his now global smash hit ‘Faded.’ Fast forward two years and the single has officially reached the 1 billion mark with views on YouTube.
19-year-old Norwegian DJ and producer Alan Walker is an international sensation, with three tremendously successful singles under his belt. At just the beginning of his career, he is one of the most streamed artists in the world, with his YouTube channel alone having over 1.7 billion views. His first single ‘Faded’ has become a global viral hit with over 624 million streams on Spotify, over 1 billion views on YouTube and it is the 9th most liked video on YouTube ever.
Last summer, Alan toured all across Europe and performed at various festivals including Tomorrowland in Belgium and Creamfields in the UK and supported Rihanna during her European leg of her ANTI World Tour. In October, his remix of Sia‘s hit ‘Move Your Body‘ was included on the Deluxe version of her album This Is Acting. He has received press coverage from Billboard, Complex, Fader, Mashable and more. Alan Walker recently completed his first European headlining tour, where all shows were sold out and he is currently on his first-ever North-American tour, with sold out shows in LA, NY, D.C. and more.
Growing up in the digital era, Alan found an early interest in computers that later turned into a fascination for programming and graphic design. In 2012 he started making music on his laptop with the help and feedback from his online friends. His music gained great popularity among gamers who used Alan‘s tracks in their own YouTube videos (UGC). The songs spread all over the world and later caught the attention of record labels.
Norwegian mainstay Alan Walker returned to his hometown of Bergen for the first time in December of 2016 to perform an intimate collection of his own tracks to an exhilarated USF Verftet crowd. The Youtube live-streamed concert featured vocal contributions from the likes of Angelina Jordan, Marius Samuelsen, Alexandra Rotan, Yosef Wolde-Mariam and Tove Styrke, who rounded out the evening with an unforgettable live rendition of Walker’s massive 2016 hit “Alone.”
Streamed over 160 million times on Youtube and 80 million on Spotify, “Alone” became one of the most defining EDM tracks of the year, despite its last entry into the pool. Along with “Sing Me to Sleep,” the song helped propel Walker to the No. 55 on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ list of 2016.

Plus, chart action for LeAnn Rimes, Britney Spears, Tycho, Ed Sheeran & Rihanna.
Sia soars 3-1 on Billboard‘s Dance Club Songs chart (dated Feb. 11) with “Move Your Body,” her seventh leader on the list.
The singer-songwriter, who first hit the chart with “The Girl You Lost to Cocaine” (No. 8, 2008), has scored at least one No. 1 each year since 2014. Dating to her first topper, “Wild One Two” (billed as by Jack Back featuring David Guetta, Nicky Romero and Sia), on May 5, 2012, only three acts have attained more No. 1s: Rihanna (11), Dave Aude (nine) and Katy Perry (eight). Remixes from Alan Walker, House of Labs and David Harry, among others, helped “Move” do just that to the summit.
