The sound of tropical house has been a divisive one this summer
Its glockenspiel toting, steel drum bashing, pan piping overload goes down like a pina colada for holiday makers, but when it’s played in the pub on a weekday, "Firestone" sounds like the taste of a warm pint.
However, tropical house's baby daddy Kygo might be about to hotbox the hearts of haters. The Norse God of woodwind house music has just released a remix of "Take On Me", originally unleashed 20 years ago by A-Ha.
It’s been covered multiple times- to varying degrees of success- but Kygo, real name Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, may have just smashed it out of the water by adding an extra slice of 21st century relevance to a what might be the most bizarrely popular dance track to come out of Scandinavia since "Dancing Queen".
