BTS Fire and WTF Is Tropical House?

Alright y'all, we're going to talk about a topic that affects each and every one of us:

TROPICAL HOUSE.

It's a subgenre of house music that is influenced by instruments such as steel drums usually used in Jamaican, Cuban, etc music. It's been getting more and more popularity these days but I was still surprised to hear it in at BTS song!

It is most noticeable in Rap Mon's part at 2:15.

That awesome sound in the back? That's classic Tropical House music!

Here are some more examples if you dig that sound:

Jeremih - Don't Tell 'Em

Thanks to @Lizzeh for reminding me about this awesome example!!!!

Justin Bieber - Sorry & What Do You Mean

Beibs made his comeback completely backed by this music. It sounds fresh, fun, and you CAN'T STOP LISTENING TO IT.

Kygo - Stay

Often referenced as the king of the rebirth of TropHouse, Kygo is your go-to DJ if you want nothing but Tropical House in your ears.

Skrillex and Diplo - Where Are Ü Now

This was the song that really brought the sound to mainstream recently. Those "dolphin sounds" or however you choose to describe it...yup, TropHouse.

Fifth Harmony - Worth It & Work

It's leaking into the girl group pop scene too with Fifth Harmony using an almost 8-bit take on Trop-Pop. Still groovy.

Jamie XX - Loud Places

And then we have Jamie XX that combines his smooth sleepy sounds from the XX with the catchy pop of Tropical House. Needless to say, it was love at first listen.

Even though it has existed for a long time (and the influences that inspired existed looooooooooong before) I'm glad to hear more of it now in mainstream music!

Enjoy!

Leaving Vingle!👋🏻😢
Hello everyone! It’s Yugykookie97 here! So I have officially decided to leave vingle for good. I know I’ve said this before but I would end up coming back. This time I’m officially going to be leaving. Vingle isn’t the same anymore. I’ve also been working a lot so I don’t have time to post like I normally do. I have been going through a lot of things. And I just need to focus on myself and not have to worry about anything. I would also like to thank each and everyone of you guy’s that follow me and like what I would post. It really means the world to me💜 I would also like to thank @DefSoul1994 @MelissaGarza @Mochiroon & @QueenPandaBunny 💜 You girls have been such a big help when I was the president for the BTS community! I have also become friends with these girls! You are all amazing! I love every single one of you girls!💜 If anyone would like to keep in touch with me just dm me on here and I will give you my Twitter or snap info! I will delete vingle from my phone on Saturday. So with that being said before I do delete I will be posting as many cards as I can. No promises though. I do have work so it is hard for me to post. Anyways I hope you all have a wonderful day and thank you all again for everything!💜💜 ❤BANGTAN ARMY TEAM❤: @MelissaGarza @Mochiroon @Yugykookie97 ❤ARMY TAGLIST❤: @amandamuska  @blessowmwago @BoyGroupKpop @Bxbybri @CleafeMaeObina @coolwolf13 @dalenalw @echoxsoul  @gabstar143  @Gracebug @HannahC19 @herreraletecia  @HomegirlG  @ifitnessvn @Ilovephases @izzybell1202 @jennyfer1111r1 @JJiBin @jiminiebae @jkenshayla @jungkookieeeee @Just2BLoved @kaylawalker929  @kaylenne956 @krissynormam @kpopfan88 @Kyla05 @MelissaGarza @Mochiroon @Nyxxonn @PANDABTS @QueenPandaBunny @rebeccariley52 @rodrickagardne @Rose2demhaters @samcorsam @simpsonsamantha @Shelbeigh19 @shellyfuentes70 @soobak @Starbell808 @szewwy @Taekookimonster  @Tiffiedannie @wolfyplayzyv @YourHentaiWaifu @yukigintokie    *let me know if you want to be apart of the ARMY taglist* K-Monsta Squad: @Yugykookie97 @BBxGD @lilbr0wneyes @DefSoul1994 @KpopGaby @MYAlpha @BangtanGirlOT12 Tag List: @cagonzales9696 @MonieManhiM @cherriblossom17 @SimplyAwkward @Btsislife @jaselgalindo @emealia @saraortiz2002 @xsandos17 @VictoriaBossier @TaehyungKey @Sarahdarwish @kpopandkimchi @Emealia @terenailyn @MonAnnahiX @4dalientae @PrettieeEmm @kyokeo @KwonOfAkind @AnimeKpopLover @SugaOnTop  @QueenyCrossGene @MadAndrea @B1A4BTS5ever @zyxzj @Taehyungie @VKookie47 @NuXX @Baekyeol27 @DOislifeExoL @kpopbeat @BulletproofV @PrincessUnicorn @luna1171 @LisetteZapata @herreravanessa9 @MadAndrea @AnimeKpopFreak @amandamuska @RandomName @aliendestina @mrsyookihyun @MaelstromVIP @Foxxyjinxx @Bangtanss @YessicaCardenas @JadeOwens @cns1391 @JJiBin @TheEnlightment @BlueMoon201 @QueenPandaBunny @emberreynemoll @LacyTanner @nyxxonn @SweetDuella @MmIlk @KihyunA @ARMY4Life @SerenaArthurs @Additional18 @jessicaclove  @olive07354  @YungStatin  @nickij @Mochiroon @LiyahBoon @BoyGroupKpop @blessowmwago @Lesha @jkenshayla @Kpoplover2016 *Let me know if you want to be tagged or untagged from the tag list*
