Kygo Shows How Simplicity Can Be Beautiful

Even though Kygo is becoming known for being the leader of Tropical House, there's a lot more to his talent as an artist. If you haven't seen him play the piano live, then he's still probably one dimensional in your eyes. If you're like me, you get just as much if not more out of a great instrumental than a finished track with vocals. I've always admired the skill of producers and given them the lions share of the credit for a lot of artists' success. It's tracks like Piano Jam, where Kygo was evidently just playing around on the keyboard, that show the depth not usually seen when a track gets released to the masses. Many of you will listen to this and get bored by the 30 second mark because it sounds like elevator music. I love it for it's simplicity and if you're looking for audio that will help you tell a story visually, this track is perfect. My favorite part is around the 2:15 mark when the beat picks up and there's some clapping layered on for added effect. I'd equate this to a great freestyle from a Hip Hop artist. It's not something that would be released on an album, but it's a perfect snack that will keep you wanting more. Now, how about that debut album??...#PianoJam
