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.
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!
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.
Warning: you will not be able to take this off repeat. This tropical remix of Boyce Avenue from FlyBoy is incredibly addictive. It transitions perfectly from the vocal sections to the tropical breakdowns, it builds nicely, and maintains a great melody throughout. It’s great for a long drive up the coast, with all the windows down… pretty much exactly what this genre is meant for. All you need to do for the free download is follow FlyBoy on Facebook here.
This fun remix of FourFiveSeconds comes from a 17 year old in Sweden with some major talent. It’s a tropical house take on the song, with great breakdowns and a nice build. Keep an eye on Widman, he has a lot of years ahead of him and this is a great start. Give him a follow here.
It’s pretty ballsy to take on a song by a former Beatle, but that’s just what Mark Tarmonea did, and thank goodness he did. This mellow tropical house cover features Mark Tarmonea on vocals and production. It’s a total departure from the original, which is probably why it works so well. If you’re going to take on such a classic song, simply reproducing it is boring. That’s not the case here, so good job Mark! 🙂
Thinking of You is a mellow downtempo blend of deep and tropical, paired with a great vocal that floats over the instrumental nicely. It’s super catchy, and very chill, but fast-paced enough to make you want to dance. It’s on the longer side for a song, at a little over 9 minutes, but it’s worth the full listen. Comparable to Strobe, arguably Deadmau5’s best song, it builds upon itself until you’re floating and don’t know how you got there. Enjoy, and get the free download here.
This stunning, chilled out remix of Oh Wonder’s All We Do is truly incredible. It combines elements of melodic and tropical house, and perfectly balances ambience with depth. LYAR has produced one of the very best Oh Wonder remixes to date, and it’s worth many listens and shares. Vote for it on Hype Machine here, and don’t forget to take advantage of the free download 🙂
This downtempo remix from Manila Killa, made for his girlfriend, brings out all the feels. It’s a huge departure from the original, but is easier to listen to… again and again. It starts out with a vocal laid over simple piano, and as the instrumental swells the voice fades out. The drop is deep and a little tropical. Altogether, it’s a great song and worth more than a few listens.
Autograf makes the absolute best remixes, always, and this is no exception. It has been reposted all over Soundcloud for the past week, and recently hit #1 on Hype Machine. Listen to it, and get a free download here!
