Three releases deep into his public existence, Brighton producer J. Tropic has showcased a knack for blending elements of hip-hop, trap, house, and R&B—admittedly often interrelated genres—into a summery, energetic mix that feels par for the future bounce course while keeping an eye on concerted, satisfying structure missing in much of the nascent style.

New single “Who U Are” might be J. Tropic’s most polished, distinctive concoction yet, bubbling and built around a big hook. It’s a familiar sound for many who trawl the Soundcloud waters for beats, but one well-executed here and still on the road to maturity at large.

Check out “Who U Are” (and other releases “Solid Gold” and “Love Up,” which comprise J. Tropic’s debut EP) below.
