My Tropical House Picks to Combat the Winter Blues

My Tropical House Picks to Combat the Winter Blues

Long and cold winters can cause us all to feel a little under the weather. Listening to some tropical house music can help combat the winter blues. Tropical house is a sub-genre of deep house music. It has been described to have elements of dance hall and Balearic house. The sound of tropical house is lighter than that of deep house.

This genre is worth giving a listen. Here are my top five tropical house songs you should take a listen to.

Kygo’s “Stole the Show” feat. Parson James. Kygo is one of the artists that has helped influence and define the tropical house genre. I picked this song partly because of Kygo’s huge influence in the tropical house genre. This song is also one of his most popular and contains a very catchy tune.

 “Wonderful Life” by Matoma. The Angry Birds movie featured this song in it. “Wonderful Life” plays a light tune that creates a feel good vibe. This song really brings out the tropical vibe with the variety of instruments used in the song. “Wonderful Life” is also a more popular tropical house song, thanks to the movie Angry Birds.

“Prayer in C (Robin Schulz Remix)”  Lilly Wood & The Prick. I first heard this song in 2015 when it was released, but did not know it was under the genre of tropical house. This song contains a really awesome beat that is wonderful to jam to.  

“Netzwerk (Falls Like Rain)” by Klangkarussell. I really enjoy how electro-chill this song feels. It contains a chill, yet upbeat sound that soothes the ears.

The final song in my playlist is “Are You With Me” by Lost Frequencies. Lost Frequencies has also been credited with helping define the genre of tropical house along with having a chill vibe. There are a few different remixes of this song. I recommend checking out the original “Are You With Me” and the Andy Tropical House Remix version.

Allow the smooth sound of tropical house to give you a brief escape from the cold weather and winter blues. You won’t regret it.
