This has definitely been the year where tropical house has very much become a thing. Thomas Jack has been a huge force tied to the genre and has seen his stock rise exponentially. The major story is obviously Kygo though as he's gone from SoundCloud hero to his own sold out U.S. tour and record deal with Ultra/Sony. So yeah...you could say it's a thing. Thing is, for me, I'm baffled as to how it's really all classified. Example being this Jaymes Young flip that Felix Jaehn dropped with Chris Meid. It cleverly turns the rock-tinged solo performance to a poppy love song with some playful swing. Jaehn himself has been on a bit of a roll himself in this "tropical house" world. I don't even know if you can really say this is even a house tune. I do know it's definitely damn good though.
