The ever-growing popularity of Tropical House doesn’t end when the leaves start falling and snow joins the party. Far from it. The sultry vibes of clean marimba and steel drums will keep Summer alive forever. Felix Jaehn knows this all too well. His latest collaboration with London-based singer Chris Meid is exactly what we need as the sun sets and the breeze starts blowing.
Felix Jaehn’s remix of Jaymes Young’s song “One Last Time” begins with a sensual beat behind gorgeous bellowing vocals before segwaying into an upbeat Tropical House masterpiece. Meid’s soothing vocals, accompanied by light marimba tones, will transport you straight to the beach with towel and beer in hand. Jaehn’s laid-back rework gives the acoustic original an island flavor, creating a unique sound guaranteed to lift your spirits and sway your body to the beat.

After dropping his remix of The Lighthouse and the Whaler’s “Venice” last week, Bearson is quick to the draw, delivering a refreshing guest mix of sun-kissed house that’ll keep the Fall season at bay, as long as you’re listening.

As we’re inching closer to the business end of 2014, there’s a new label bubbling up out of Australia named October Records. The most recent release comes from label affiliate Frames who pairs up with Elizabeth Rose to provide a two-sided ‘Intentions/Anywhere‘ EP that shares a nice space somewhere between disco and house. Frames dims the lights on his ‘Late Night Dub’ of Intentions, which is a slow burner that morphs into a groovy acid number that’ll have bodies moving till last call. Check the track below and make sure you keep an eye out for these Australian kids as they’re gearing up for a spicy Summer.
