The fittingly named Tropics gives us a mix of bright, sunny electronic jams for the latest Clash DJ podcast.
The UK producer, Chris Ward, made a name for himself with an album of lush dreamscapes on Planet Mu in 201, ‘Parodia Flare’, and has continued to release his colourful, melodic compositions, combining woozy electronica and considered instrumentation, ever since.
Tropics’ Clash mix is a beautifully hazy journey through downtempo electronic cuts – with a few curveballs thrown in – taking in tracks from Toro y Moi, Jesse Boykins III, Gang Gang Dance, Last Magpie and Kevin McPhee.
Tropics’ ‘Popup Cinema’ EP is out now on Svetlana Industries.
