Kicking off 2015 with some positive sunny vibes to fend off the shitty British winter. This cover of Bob Marley’s classic fits snugly in to the emerging trend for ‘Tropical’ house music coming from artists like Matoma and Kygo who are incidentally both from Norway.

In fact an interesting piece about Tropical House on blog lessthan3.com succinctly points out:

"It's interesting that all the Tropical House producers are from places that are cold as fuck. You think it'd be some dude from Jamaica making all this stuff, but instead it's a bunch of nordic and northern Europeans..."  

Nonetheless definitely loving this antidote to the full on sounds of EDM and chilly winter blues.
