One-man-band Chris Ward, known to most as Tropics, is the complete all-rounder. Coming from a musical family, Chris is now a producer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist who blends the jazz sounds of a Rhodes keyboard with vintage synths, guitars, and a whole host of modern software and production wizardry to create a unique sound with an aptly tropical feel.

For his mix, Chris looked to the music that has excited him recently and the tracklist reads like a who’s who of talent in contemporary electronic music, as Chris explains:

‘The mix is just a blend of chilled out club-friendly tracks I’ve been loving recently, whilst DJing and playing live shows abroad. They're tracks by friends and artists who I'm a fan of.’

Tropics debut album, Parodia Flare, is out now on Planet Mu.
