Tropic: Bittersweet (EP Review)

By: Rob Perez (A Toast) –

Bittersweet may be an appropriate title for Tropic’s new EP, as it contains plenty of contemporary R&B tracks, but also pays tribute to the old school by mixing the new with the old R&B soul standards.

Before giving it a listen, know that Bittersweet is about breaking up. That’s what makes the nucleus of each of the five tracks in Bittersweet, but that still doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy Tropic’s new take on old and new school R&B and funk, with plenty of techno/electronic beats mixed in. Tropic gives us a hint of R&B’s future here.

Beginning with the title track “Bittersweet”, featuring a turn of the century 90’s beat, to “Nostalgia”, where the old school funk makes an appearance, to the electronic-inspired “Breath Again”, Bittersweet fuses all these genres nicely.

It’s worth a listen with a beer in hand for sure. Again we say, this is a look into the future of R&B and we like where it’s heading.
