Who's ready to get Tropical this Halloween with the king of tropical house Thomas Jack! Thomas Jack is an Australian DJ and producer who refers to his summery, laid-back dance tracks as "tropical house." Inspired by deep house as well as acoustic rock and jam bands, his tracks heavily feature live instruments, particularly saxophone, flute, piano, and guitar, and generally have a relaxed, sunny, uplifting feel. His tracks often feature samples of speeches; Jack has noted Charlie Chaplin's closing speech from The Great Dictator as being particularly inspirational to him. He began using the term "tropical house" somewhat jokingly, but it stuck, and international producers such as Kygo and Klingande soon became associated with the subgenre.
