I started studying business and finance in Edinburgh as a backup plan. I was still making music many hours a day, and when I was at university, the electronic music boom started really taking off globally.
My biggest influence growing up was Avicii, who put me onto creating the sorts of melodies that feature throughout my songs today.
Elton John and Billy Joel, I find them both to be huge inspirations, those guys are so talented.
2015 has been a crazy year for me, and Spotify have supported me right from the start. It's an honour to be their Breakout Artist of the year, and I'm super excited to see what we can do together in 2016!
I don't like to classify my own tracks as a genre.
Coldplay doesn't have to stay within a certain genre; they just go where they go.
All my collaborations happen in different ways. Sometimes it's through a chance meeting at a festival or event, while others can happen just off the back of me liking their music and reaching out.
I feel like when I get the demos - I get a lot of demos - but when I get the right demo, I get very inspired. I produce around it, and it often goes very fast.
I get a lot of demos sent my way, and I listen to them, and sometimes they just have something very special.
SiriusXM has had my back ever since day one when I was making remixes in my dorm room at university, and it means a lot that they're supporting my music as I prepare to release my debut album, 'Cloud Nine.'
I'd love to work with some of the people I've remixed for - Ed Sheeran or Chris Martin or The Weeknd. But it's not just big names like these guys that I want to collaborate with.
Edinburgh is where I started. A lot of the remixes I made were done in my room there, and it was a good place for me to make music.
Edinburgh has a similar climate to Bergen - it's very rainy and grey. There were a lot of days I'd sit inside in front of the computer, make music, and dream about summer - instead of the rainy reality outside.
I started taking piano lessons from the age of six years old. It's such an essential part of what I do in the production process. I wouldn't be Kygo today without those piano lessons.
I'm so happy people have enjoyed listening to my tracks.
When I make a song, I'm really happy. It's an indescribable feeling.
I like bringing keyboards and stuff on stage.
I hate being put in a box labelled 'tropical house.'
The opportunity to be a part of the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games in Rio is a huge milestone in my career, and it will be the biggest performance of my life.
I am proud to perform at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert.
