HOMETOWN: United States/Taiwan
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: This producer is quite the mystery, as his information is hard to find on the Internet. Thankfully, though, the music is awesome enough to speak for itself. Rgry is the exception to this list, as his style is not fully house but it still has those danceable qualities. The producer takes various vocal samples, R&B-flecked melodies and slightly off-kilter beats to create a deep groove that will have you feeling oh-so-sexy!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: This next producer is the only female on the list, and she definitely holds her own when it comes feel-good dance music. Eau Claire may have just got onto the scene this year, but her signature breezy sound has taken her to some of the biggest festivals in the States. Her combination of nu-disco, house and electronic is almost saccharine, refreshingly sparkling and downright fun!

HOMETOWN: Bucharest, Romania
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: Tropical house is a budding sub-genre that is catching a lot of attention, thanks to big-name artists like Kygo and Thomas Jack. But rising producer Boehm also deserves to be recognized for bringing this style of music to the international forefront. Hailing from Romania, he mixes brass instruments, vibrant melodies and glittery synths that makes his tracks very soothing to listen to. Think of it as a musical equivalent of a piña colada.
