If you never made the connection between Talking Heads and tropical dance music then TBE fave Viceroy has gone and done it for you. Thank him later. Dance now.

The other night I was up as late as usual, when it came to me. Â The thought, “where is the sun in this cloudy city”. Â The city I’mÂ referringÂ to is Seattle, a city blessed with more than its share of rain. Â It was at this moment I feverishly signed onto Soundcloud to tried to fill the that sunny void in my life. Â Enter Viceroy.
Joel:Â Being from the Seattle area we don’t get a whole lot of sun, so most of the time we have to live vicariously through other people or in my case, music. You seem to have a unique style of production that fits this picturesque image of mine. An image of beaches, pools, fruity drinks, good vibes and most importantly…. loads of women. I know you don’t live in Vegas, so what inspires this style of music for you?
Viceroy:Â I think my best experiences through-out life always happened in the summer. The summer is something everyone looks forward to and growing up I couldn’t get enough of it. I also find my style of music aka “summer music” to be a style that can be played in all different kinds of settings with all kinds of people. Its multi-functional in that sense, plus who doesn’t love a feel good track? I wasn’t always into feel good music, but when I first explored edm, nu-disco was introduced to me immediately and I fell in love with it.
Joel:Â Viceroy is an interesting moniker, its more than a dj name, its a ruler of sorts. Can you tell us a little about what Viceroy means to you and your music? Side note: Did you know that Christopher Columbus desperately wanted to be the Viceroy of all discovered lands?

Alright! Ok, I’ve heard enough buzz (and remixes!) about New York’s St. Lucia that I will have to finally check out his original material. Just let me finish this Viceroy remix. And thisÂ cocktail. And splashing the waves like a child after a heavilyÂ syrupedÂ snowcone un a summer day.

Its been awhile since I released a Remix Roundup. Yeah, I know blah blah… Â What if i told you that I have one in the batters box and another on deck… just waiting there patiently, ready to slap you in the face with this waffle here (Baseball reference in 2012- check). Â BTW, this waffle is made of plastic and it might hurt.
Tis Friday folks.
For more jams or by any of these artists use the â€˜tagsâ€™ links at the bottom of the post!Â Follow @JoelAlbers on Twitter for updates on remixes, dubstep and all things Nurdy.
â™«Â Capital Cities – Safe and Sound (d’Anconia Remix)Â / First off, this original tune was one of my 2011 favorites and I really enjoyed the Discotech remix just recently released… Â BUT, this version is so tough that I almost want to slap someone. Â If this jamÂ doesn’tÂ top Hype, then I’ll be personally pissed. Â Check d’Anconia on Facebook.
Ahem! Excuse me. If you thought you were taking a break because last weekend was New Years Eve then forget it. This is the first weekend of 2012 and it’s time to kick things off right. Below is a list of the best remixes of the past 6 months and they are quite restless so please let them out this weekend. Walks and feeding are optional.
Any glaring errors in judgement? Any additions you would make? Any good pizza in L.A.?
17. â™«Â M83 – Midnight City (Alcala Remix)Â / One of the top remixed songs of the year had stiff competition but Alcala’s slow build explodes the original into the stratospheric massiveness that it always hinted at.
8. â™«Â Citizens! – True Romance (Gigamesh Remix)Â / From the moment Gigamesh drops that beat it’s all over. The windows are down and I’m practically climbing out the window to get the whipping wind on my face. Thank goodness for seat belts.
1. â™«Â The Notorious B.I.G – Everyday Struggle (Frogs in Socks BiG Bootleg)Â / Just as you get your head around the odd and minimal beat you realize that Biggie sounds clearly than ever and everything fits in such anÂ awkwardlyÂ perfect way you wonder how such a thing could exist. Then you understand that the world is full of all sorts of miracles that nobody can explain.

Viceroy, who we know from his summer soundtrackingÂ Sunny Daze, is back with his own EP of sugar-addled summer jams for those of us ready to get nostalgic for 4 months ago. (sign me up!) The Sunburn EP‘s 4 tracks are all extensions of the same glitchy upbeat electro formula that the man does so well. Put them on and just groove through your house cleaning! What is really remarkable, though, is his Rihanna remix that was originally included with the EP but has new been removed from Soundcloud.
Viceroy did the impossible, taking this seasons most ubiquitous song and making it listenable again. Nay,Â lovableÂ again! I’m hearing muffled robot voices, deep grunts, popping bongos, handclaps, and wait… is that Homer Simpson yelping? Whatever the hell is going on I’m loving it. Grab it now before someone makes me take it down!
