With Ultra Music Festival and both weekends of Coachella officially in the rearview mirror, festival season is in full force, and alongside the wave of brand new tracks, EPs, and albums that festival season brings, it also signals the advent of summer. The thought of summer evokes happy memories - long, sunny days by the pool, ice cold drinks, backyard BBQs, and great music, and within the last year, artists like Kygo and Thomas Jack have championed a summer-ready genre of dance music in tropical house to great success. Now, Kygo and Thomas Jack may have to make room for another fast-rising producer named Thero, who is making a name for himself with his unique blend of deep house with tropical-influenced sounds.
Thero’s latest output is a sun-soaked re-imagination of Frankie’s hit, “Problems Problems.” Tagging the up-and-coming, seventeen-year-old rapper, Caye, to deliver a cooler vibe to match Thero’s warmth, the Florida-native channels his hometown vibes with his sound that blends seamlessly with Caye’s smooth verses. From the top to the bottom, “Problems Problems” receives a tropical makeover, as Thero layers together his signature groovy bass line with warm and lively drum patterns and carefree guitar riffs, giving the remix a personality as warm as a summer day and as cool as an ocean breeze.
