The sounds of tropical paradises are so incredible and bring you sense of warmth and closeness to nature and the water.

This round is for those beats that encompass that tropical paradise feeling whether it include beach related sounds as inspiration or a beat that makes you feel like you are in a tropical paradise.

Whether it be reggae sounds that get you in the beach mood or bird call and/or ocean sounds that take you to your favorite tropical paradise.

However you feel this round resonates with you let's hear your take on this Tropical Paradise theme.

Looking forward to hearing the creations from the incredible producers in the Steemit Universe

  • Creativity: how unique your entry is. How well it revolves around the universal theme? Holy smokes we have never heard that sound before? A creative video and/or artwork o yeahhhhh.

Also, sharing the story about the creation of your art in your Steemit post helps the judging panel and community gain perspective and knowledge on yourself and the message you are sharing.
