You know that famous Jay-Z line about not being a “businessman” but a “business, man?” Kygo is really starting to live up to that bar. The Norwegian producer sells standard merch on his site, like t-shirts and all that, but he also designs his own headphones and, now, he teamed with Google to create his own brand of smart speaker.
Dubbed the “Kygo B9/800” and premiered by Hypbeast, this sophisticated piece of equipment plays all your favorite tropical-pop dance tunes in crystal clear audio, but thanks to Google, it’s also capable of answering your questions, managing your daily tasks and can even integrate with your smart home technology.
It’s got a built-in Google Chromecast and connects to Wi-Fi, which allows it to communicate with different rooms of your house and all kinds of crazy, futuristic stuff most DJs can’t even dream of getting involved in.
The Kygo B9/800 will soon be available via Kygo’s website and selected retailers.
