Sometimes life gets really stressful, whether you’re trying to find an apartment in a short amount of time, or dealing with finals, or whatever else. It can get so stressful that you don’t want to make your own mellow playlist. That’s where FlyBoy comes in. First of all, as stated previously, this kid is majorly talented. Second, this entire hour-long mix is very soothing, tropical, melodic, deep, and all around pleasant to listen to. While we wait (not so) patiently for his next remix, chill out with his mixtape, and enjoy. Tracklist coming soon, and here’s the free DL link for a few of his other songs.
6ig Angu5 takes everything from classic rock songs to contemporary pop songs and remixes them into tropical house delicacies. This remix of Safe and Sound is no exception, and it’s in line with the rest of his unexpected work. Where some producers may falter and create something that doesn’t seem quite right, he manages to mix genres beautifully to bring us a different sound that stands out against the tropical house being produced right now. Check it out, and get the free DL here.
Uh, this combination is genius. Nothing gets more California than tropical house and Going Back to Cali, despite Biggie’s East Coast origins. This is just perfect, there are very few words (as a California native) that can express how perfect it is. The Jane Doze laid Going Back to Cali over Kygo’s remix of I See Fire by Ed Sheeran, and the result is tropical yet gangster in the best of ways. Here’s to hoping The Jane Doze get their summer in New York soon, but maybe in the meantime get those asses to California 😉
Taking on Sam Smith is no small feat, but Jasmine Thompson is no small singer. Well she is, at 14 years old, but she has a voice well beyond her years. This tropical house remix of Stay With Me is an enormous departure from the original, but equally incredible. It’s a mellow blend of Jasmine’s vocals and Matthew Heyer’s chill production, and it’s sure to put you in a great mood. Get the free download here!
Living in Santa Barbara, CA, it’s pretty easy to be dubious when a song is called Welcome to Paradise. Santa Barbara is paradise, no welcome needed. With that said, this song is amazing. It’s easy and breezy, and Emma Carn’s gentle voice meshes perfectly with the underlying beat and guitar. It’s the ideal song for a long drive, or a day at the beach with tropical drinks. Welcome to paradise, indeed 😉
Jess Glynne has seen a great amount of success in 2014/15, culminating in a Grammy win for Best Dance Recording on Clean Bandit’s Rather Be. Hold My Hand is her follow-up single, and while it’s a great song in its own right, this remix really takes it to the next level. Her single is an upbeat pop song that shows off her impressive pipes, but Le Youth’s remix is sure to get people dancing a whole lot harder. It’s Wednesday, so use this to get you through to Friday. It’ll work. 🙂
Here’s the latest original feel good house track from Sailors. It’s fun and funky as ever, and at this point it’s looking like Sailors are going to give us the complete soundtrack for summer 2015. Between Diamonds and Feels So Good, they’re killing it with each release. Keep ’em coming! Get it on Beatport here.
Start your week off on the right note with the latest from FlyBoy. The 17 year old producer released this song as a thank you to his 1,000 Soundcloud fans – since then he’s jumped to over 1,300. This song is a perfectly balanced blend of vocals and instrumental, and its mellow vibe is relaxing without ever being boring. As previously stated, FlyBoy is one to watch out for. Each of his releases is different from the previous ones, and equally incredible. Get the free DL here, and enjoy!
You’d probably never expect a tropical house remix of The Who, but here it is, and it’s really good. It’s just the right amount of tropical that it doesn’t overpower the original song. It’s a fresh update that some hardcore fans of The Who will either love or hate. Regardless, any fan of good tropical house music will appreciate this take on the song. Get the free download here!
Kygo is back with another original, and it’s even better than Firestone. Parson James kills it on the vocals, and Kygo’s tropical sound is evident (and amazing) throughout. You’d think that bouncy tropical house wouldn’t work with such sad lyrics, but for whatever reason it does. If Kygo keeps this up, in conjunction with his huge upcoming shows, he’s going to run the scene for many years to come.
