Tropical House is a subgenre of deep house, which in itself is a subgenre of house music. It initially started out as a joke by Australian producer, Thomas Jack. But the sound quickly caught fire. Its breakthrough moment, according to GQ, was producer Felix Jaehn’s saxophone-infused remix of OMI’s “Cheerleader” reaching the top ten on iTunes in 18 countries, as well as the top ten on Spotify in 14 countries.
Unlike deep house, which can often sound very dark, Tropical House typically sounds more uplifting. It incorporates usual house characteristics like synthesizer instrumentation, and a 4/4 kick drum pattern, but adds tropical instruments like steel drums, marimba, guitar, saxophone, and sometimes even pan flute.
