Hot Chip - Look At Where We Are (Four Tet Remix)
This is just seven minutes of brilliance. (In our opinion)
Frank Ocean - Thinking About You (Ryan Hemsworth Bootleg)
A few extra kicks and snares to get the day started.
Holly Miranda - Slow Burn Treason (Jamie xx Edit)
It’s been a long time coming so savour it.
Toddla T - Alive (Sticky Remix)
Sticky puts his happy 2-step bounce on this Toddla T and Shola Ama collaboration to make sure everyone knows that Summer has arrived! Tropico certified.
Big K.R.I.T. - Me and My Old School (Remix) [Feat. Slim Thug & Lil KeKe]
This is powerful. Extremely powerful. The vocal sample and beat alone are enough to keep me going deep into the night.
Little Dragon - Ritual Union (Bufi Remix)
Tropico HQ is full of passionate Little Dragon followers; we have a particular soft spot for the hypnotic sounds and moves of vocalist Yukimi Nagano. Naturally then, we’re sceptical when producers put their on spin on a Little Dragon track, especially one as heavily remixed as ‘Ritual Union’. Mexican based Bufi’s take on the track is something quite different though. Giving the track a progressive disco sound, accentuating the snare sounds for a more dancefloor-friendly feel, he has successfully put his own stamp on a Little Dragon favourite.
Definitely Tropico approved.
M.I.A. - Bad Girls (Wiley Remix - Prod. By Thomas Mellor)
The ever intriguing Eski Boy takes to his beloved Twitter to announce the leaking of his re-work of M.I.A.’s latest single. He’s such a loveable rogue.
You can download the track here.
XV - Swervin’ (Clams Casino Remix)
Clams Casino can do no wrong in our eyes at the moment. The instrumental of this remix has been doing the online rounds recently, but we thought we’d share the whole thing with you. Clams’ ethereal production under the vocals of XV provide for an altogether pleasant experience. Enjoy.
Nneka - Shining Star (Joe Goddard Remix)
This one’s an absolute odyssey.
Metronomy - Radio Ladio (Micachu Remix)
I had to share this track, it’s one of those that is so quirky and off beat that it works, or at least I think it works. You decide.
Radiohead - Lotus Flower (SBTRKT Remix)
Late night vinyl sessions.
Rifling through records obtained on various London digging missions and found this, unopened and ready to be unleashed. Midnight vibes from Tropico HQ.
