Kygo‘s “Stargazing” is a triumphant song. It’s the battle of love over pain, of dreams over disenchantment. Justin Jesso‘s emotive performance is the heart of the hit, something Kygo highlighted with his recent cinematic orchestral retake, but if you’re looking for a remix that mirrors the tropical-tinged vibe of the original, Kaskade came through with the danceable rework your sunset deserves.
He keeps the intro intimate and sparse with organic guitar and piano while slowly building the synthetic element. As Jesso hits his choral climax, Kaskade chops it into circles, then he takes the reins straight for outer space with a lush array of electronic key melodies and machine drum beats.
It’s equal parts introspective and emergent, and it really plays into the song’s beautiful backbone. It’s out as an official rework on Sony Music. Listen to the thoughtful, and hopeful “Stargazing” remix below.
