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.
