TROPICAL HOUSE MUSIC 

For the past years, Tropical house music has dominated music fans’ playlists when it comes to planning what kind of music to accompany them to a holiday or a weekend getaway with colleagues. When you look at the social media profiles of famous Djs like; Kygo, Sam Feld, or Robin Schulz, you will notice that their brand is all about the chill-vibe. Mostly, they post pictures of the beach, from a pool, from the private jet, or a festival with thousands of listeners. Their unique craft of making remarkable Tropical House hits has turned them into superstars of the music scene. 

Looking back to 2014, the term “Tropical House” was introduced by chance by one Australian Dj, “Thomas Jack.” In one of his interviews, the 28-year-old Dj mentioned, “I loved summer vibes and the beach, so I thought tropical house would be a cool name.” 

Tropical House music is not generally club music in which records are mixed with each other. The creators of Tropical House do not come from the club scene but rather from the vastness of online blogs and Soundcloud lists. This is also reflected in the fact that, unlike classic club DJs, they are very much in the focus of attention (this is the same case as for EDM), and a large fan base is forming around them. As DJs and producers, they make their music that is then distributed to the listeners. In contrast to EDM star DJs like Calvin Harris or Tiesto, Tropical house producers don’t rely on fat synthesizers and resounding bass drums but rather on relaxed sounds. Some Tropical House songs can as well have a slower tempo and are generally carefree in nature. (Alex Adair – Make Me Feel Better)
