Tropics "Popup Cinema (Kelpe Remix)"
- Words: Elissa Stolman
London producer Tropics (a.k.a. Chris Ward, pictured above) has been pretty generous with "Popup Cinema," a track from his upcoming EP of the same name. Last week, he shared a stream of the song when he announced the release date of his forthcoming record, which will be available on November 5 via Svetlana Industries, and now he's unveiled a remix by fellow Londoner Kelpe (a.k.a. Kel McKeown). "Popup Cinema (Kelpe Remix)" presents the original's vocals as cut-up blips that bubble up between soft claps, sparse percussion, organ tones, and the sound of dripping water. Eventually, Kelpe allows Ward's soulful vocal melodies the room to fully leak out over his surging synths.
