It’s hard to hate on tropical house, especially when an artist like Speaker of the House presents their own signature take on the feel good style of four-four electronic music. In celebration of the fifth anniversary of legendary record label Big Beat’s relaunch, the DJ/producer has delivered a remix of Galantis’ “Runaway (U & I)” that incorporates his instantly recognizable sound into the track.
As with his other remixes and originals, Speaker of the House’s “Runaway” remix captures the warmth of tropical house while avoiding the genre’s obvious clichés – like pan flute or steel drum synths. Instead, its reverberant synths and underscoring piano melody are complimented ever so delicately by a resonant strings section, and cuts of the original top line echo into the background like ripples across a placid seashore.
