Welcome to the dark and moody underbelly of tropical house, we’re glad you’re here. Introducing New York’s Total Fitness, who puts a very different spin on Goldroom’s latest hit single “Til Sunrise.” Goldroom’s “pre-mix” inviting producers to remix the track even before he released the original garnered over several dozen submissions, but this flip by Total Fitness is by far the most creative interpretation we’ve heard yet. Here TF cuts down the vocals in favor of letting a house-driven instrumental take the forefront for a more atmospherical track.


In order to ease you in to the beginnings and ordeals of a new week, here’s the exquisite mix that Spanish producer Pional recently did for XLR8R.

!…his mix is largely a collection of melody-driven, slow-burning house, but several tracks include catchy synth riffs and vocal passages. It’s tempting to call it “indie,” but it’s more that Pional is simply an artist who’s balancing his passion for the dancefloor with his love of a good pop song. It’s a tricky balancing act to pull off, but at least for now, he’s walking the line very effectively.”
