Playing tracks by
Fur, Bullion, Oriol, Tropics, Nite Jewel and more.
The man behind Tropics is Chris Ward. Already signed to beat heavy players Planet Mu, he’s a 22 year old Brit taking influences from 70′s jams, post-punk and whatever else he taped in his youth. Tropics brings us the radiant sounds of dreamy, summer nostalgia. His music has already caught the attention of Pitchfork and XLR8R who have posted up tracks by him, as well as a number of bands including Bear In Heaven and Little Dragon who he has remixed.
His music is an utterly gorgeous slow motion mix that sounds like sustained euphoria, such as lead track ‘Give It Up’s’ slow motion chugging disco with ghostly female vocals and chiming bell-like melodies.
