Mixtape: Treekeeper – Tropical Summrr Get Right 4 The Summrr Mixtape EP

The summer of 2012 has already been well on its way for a while now and we’re in desperate need for some summery jams to replace ‘Call Me Maybe’.  While Treekeeper doesn’t have a track to become the new king of pop radio, his Tropical Summrr Get Right 4 The Summrr Mixtape EP is a sugar-coated, future-trap expedition that will at least leave us entertained for a while before we inevitably return to Carly.  Over the course of five short tracks, Treekeeper takes us from tropicalia/lounge (that made it’s way onto the last volume of Eat Your Beaties) to wonky-synth bangers all while managing to keep the release a tight and coherent package.  Each song is dripping with neon lights, day-glo synth lines and the occasional hi-hat roll.  Although we’ll all have to hate this style one day, this is the sound of the summer of 2012.
