Tropical disco meets hipster sleaze at this week's Tropicool show at Costa Mesa's Detroit Bar. Santa Barbara's David La Melza is the man behind the music—a blend of electronic dance party hooks inspired by a land of blue waters and hot nights. He considers himself a "curator of Hawaiian shirts, frosty nips, and freelance gynecologist in the alley behind your girlfriend's house," but we don't think he's actually that creepy. While La Melza recently released a tape of funky island disco a few weeks back, you can play any one of Tropicool's mixtapes (there are many) for instant party ambiance the next time you break out the blender and tiny cocktail umbrellas
