Tropical house has certainly been one of the talking points of 2014, and one of the artists at the forefront of conversation has undoubtedly been Thomas Jack. It’s not hard to see why this style has garnered such popularity over the course of this year, and this laid-back version of the anthemic ‘Back Home’ embodies everything that makes it such a joy to listen to. The catchy melody is accentuated by that sweet sax, working in perfect harmony with the acoustic bed underlying the moments of bliss layered throughout. In case you missed one of the hottest tracks from last week, stop whatever you’re doing now and dive head first into this one.
Funnily enough, as much as we talk about all these summery tunes perfectly designed for beach-side vibes, it’s not often we post things coming out of Brazil, arguably one of the best destinations for exactly that backdrop. Luckily, we have this recent jam from Cesare to remedy that glaring issue, and boy does it satisfy exactly what we’ve been lacking. Infectious lyrics mixed with a funky bassline are a powerful cocktail, and will bring a slice of paradise to wherever you may be listening. We’re continent hopping once again, but still rocking a similar vibe, this time courtesy of one of our favorite Swedes in Tobtok. His signature groovy synths are again the heroes of another solid remix that will take no prisoners in its mission to get everyone up and dancing. A body-moving sound of a different kind is woven by the ever-magical KAASI. This man is an artisan of seductively deep music, and ‘Lisse’ is another reason why we just can’t get enough of every new masterpiece he produces. Close your eyes and let it wash over you like the purest of waters.
We’ll conclude the write-up by calling out another batch of amazing ‘Say My Name’ remixes to add to the impressive list so far. That’s one contest which will see no easy decision to be made, but the rewards for us listeners have been growing with every passing week. Peace out.
