The New Tropics

We’ve been following the work of Southampton producer Chris Ward, otherwise known as Tropics, since his early EP releases on Planet Mu, and the subsequent ‘Parodia Flare’ full length from last year that saw a shift away from the multi-layered nu-gaze and disco textures into a more organic, instrument based sound. And while his music, which has previously been described as ‘an utterly gorgeous slow motion mix that sounds like sustained euphoria’, has largely progressed away from it’s chillwave origins as you might expect, at it’s heart there still remains a generous helping of warmth and soul – something that is very much in evidence on this first chilled house cut, taken from a forthcoming EP that’s out on Svetlana Industries early next month.
