Viceroy, the electro project started by Austen Afridi, is responsible for some of the best remixes we've heard in the past few years, in part because he doesn't pander to "hot buzz bands" or flavors of the week. Afridi is responsible for remixing some serious 90s FM gold: his reinterpretations of Will Smith's "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" and Mark Morrison's "Return Of The Mack" are effortlessly better than the source material, and basically sealed his place as Noisey's Favorite Producer Of Ever in a heartbeat.
So today, when he sent us over his new video for, "Dream Of Bombay," we snatched it up like a golden ring. The breezy, synth-heavy track features the vocal stylings of talented Australian singer Chela. The single is coming out on Chookie Music, a new label founded by another Aussie, producer DCUP. If you haven't yet, you should check the video above, and pick up the single right here. If you need any more of a reason, here's a stream of the track from Chookie Music's soundcloud.
