Fall is just a time of the year, summer is a lifestyle. The warm rays, chill vibes, and tasty tunes of the season are ripe year-round. All hands are on deck for this Caribbean cruise liner and your captain promises to keep on playing the hot hits.
Let's do some island hopping, ride some chillwaves and cool things down a bit with these tropichill tunes. All aboard the Sunshine Express!
1. “See (Beacon Remix)” Tycho, Ghostly International
Beacon brings his bumpin beatpad and accentuates Tycho's mesmerizing music with a sexy siren in this SBTRKT-esque remix. I've always wondered what Tycho would sound like with a singer - and now I just want more.
2. “What I Want” KarlK & Ofenbach
Some songs just create moments in your mind. A sunkissed, endless party in the sand; a sunset swim latched onto your beach babe under a pink lemonade sky. This original jam from France’s KarlK and Ofenbach is a day dreamer and hopefully motivates you to make that happy place a reality.
3. “It’s Time (Mattoma Tropical Remix)” Imagine Dragons
The tropical house trend as of late is to take a household hit and give it some sand between its toes. This reimagining of Dragons is an absolute Sing-A-Long. Follow the bouncing beach ball and let loose.
4. “Happiness (feat. MNEK)” Chris Malinchak
Chris Malinchak has had the summer of his life. His work has been aurally astounding thus far and this slow-shaking midnight rider is full of stimulating sounds to round out his arsenal of pillow soft artillery. Reflect, rejoice and replay this happy tiny dancer over and over.
5. “Sleepless (Cold Magnet Remix)” Cazzette
Ignite the night with this slow-burning melodic melter of a remix. Cold Magnet's touch oozes with fresh scents of an island getaway infused with subtle housey undertones. Take a night swim with the plurmaids in this oasis of one of summers smoothest hits.
6. “Big City Life (LEEX Remix)” Mattafix
LEEX takes the idea of ‘Big City Life’ and turns it on its head. The bongo pops, wood flute melody and chirping birds of paradise are all the opposite of what you'd expect in a song about the bustling urban jungle. Throw it on for your commute and find your happy place. Just don't close your eyes in traffic please.
7. “intervals” kuma & aywy
Welcome to the land of silk and honeys. “Intervals” is a soul swerving future R&B hit that will torture and tantalize your senses. It'll cool you down leaving you with just the right amount of heat for burning the midnight oil.
8. “Say My Name feat. Zyra (Max Liese Remix)” ODESZA
The highlight of last weekend’s Odesza show in LA was definitely their new hit “Say My Name” and Germany’s Max Liese infuses a funky refreshing tempo with this rework. Your poolside day parties could certainly use a taste of this while its fresh out the oven.
9. “Comes And Goes (Thero Remix)” Greg Laswelll
This song isn’t for toe-dippers. You cliff dive head first into these tranquil waters. Thero is producing some of the finest tropical house work to date and this compliment to Greg Laswell’s crisp voice lets you get saxy and groovy. This tropical producer is certainly a smile inducer.
10. “Bullit” Watermät, Spinnin’ Records
Fresh squeezed Watermätmelon Juice is absolutely delicious and nutricious. You don’t need no fairy dust to fly to this Neverland. Turn the speakers up, find your groove and unleash the footwork. Thanks for riding the Sunshine Express ya land lubbers.
