Dagny – Backbeat (SJUR Remix)

Norwegian singer songwriter Dagny released ‘Backbeat’ a few months ago. The piano based pop original actually sounds a lot like Foxes, with a classic power chorus and pretty nondescript verses. After the remix of Pitubll we posted a couple of weeks ago SJUR has been increasingly on our radar. This remix is a step to … Continue reading

Takedown – Miles Away

With Tropical House well and truly part of the mainstream mantlepiece, it would seem the next iteration is a slightly more laid back, saxophone and bouncy style suiting early apres ski.

Basenji – Can’t Get Enough

The simple piano track overlayed with sax, mindless vocals and an ever-so-catchy hook, we reckon this might just set your tropical house vibes into overdrive.

Jaymes Young – What Is Love (Lost Frequencies Bootleg) (White Trumpet’s sunrise edit)

A few months ago, Lost Frequencies remixed Jaymes Young’s brilliant cover of Haddaway’s ‘What Is Love’. It was good, simple tropical deep house that we can expect. Since then, we’ve discovered something of a remix of a remix – a little confusing. In short, White Trumpet has added some fantastic brass elements to the remix, … Continue reading
