Tropics – Blame (Machinedrum remix)

Before he heads out on tour with Glass Animals, Tropics shares a heavy-hitting remix of Blame by Machinedrum.


Fresh from the release of his new album 'Rapture', Tropics has unveilved a remix of its first single, Blame, by the ever-reliable Machinedrum.

Machinedrum's mix is very pretty, but it absolutely explodes around the one minute mark. Admittedly when we first listened to Blame, we weren't thinking that the song would be better if it were faster, had booming kickdrums, and belonged somewhere between juke, hip hop, and drum'n'bass – but thank you, Machinedrum, for seeing more in the song than we could.

Tropics will be heading out on tour with Glass Animals from today. Peep those dates below.

Revisit Tropics' live session with Dummy TV – where he performs a slightly more traditional version of Blame – and our interview with Tropics mastermind Chris Ward.
