Today's Advent Calendar playlist is from Tropics.

"With the rise of technology, region or origin has been a little lost in music. The Internet has thrown the world together a bit, as one big 'planet earth music industry'. I can remember back thinking as a kid how amazing it was when I first heard French hip-hop or electronic bands from Scandinavia. Everything seemed set out from one another. So to highlight that, I've picked these favourite tracks of recent days from artists in a number of countries around the world who I believe are representing them!"
