Tropical house, also known as trop house,is a subgenre of deep house,with elements of dancehall and Balearic house. Artists of the genre are often featured at various summer festivals such as Tomorrowland. The genre was popularized by artists like Thomas Jack, Kygo, Matoma, Lost Frequencies, Teddy Beats, and Klingande. The term "Tropical House" began as a joke by Australian producer Thomas Jack, but has since been gaining popularity among listeners. The term "trouse" should not be confused with tropical house as "trouse" is a genre that instead combines the feeling of trance and the beats of progressive house, utilising electro synths.
