Music Monday: Tropical Eargasms

24 Mar

Happy Monday, Consuming PR readers! Today kicks off the first of many Music Monday posts. Every Monday, I’ll be sharing my top picks from the week(end) — songs that I’ve found myself, that friends and readers have shared, etc. This will be the place where I showcase music trends and artists to watch.

Today’s Music Monday wraps up a few songs that remind me of living in tropical paradise. Topical house, trop trap, trop step… you tell me which sub-genre 😉

Remember, feel free to tweet me (@ConsumingPR)any tracks and you might just see them showcased here with a shoutout. Happy listening!

Looking for some music to play poolside in the afternoon this summer? Enjoy a few new hits from Viceroy, all promoted and free to download on Soundcloud!

And for the 90s kids out there… enjoy Montell Jordan remixed. This remix of Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It” counts over 180K plays on Soundcloud and was given a shoutout by the R&B singer himself. Didn’t think they could do it, but it’s pretty catchy.

Want to learn more about Viceroy?

His “summertime, all the time” motto seep deep into both his original and remix catalog leaving a lush, tropical disco-house sound that is paralleled by no one. It’s this distinctive sound that has found Viceroy with features in nearly every publication including VICE Magazine, The Huffington Post, MTV, Nylon Magazine, Fresh New Tracks, Gotta Dance Dirty, All Things Go, This Song Is Sick, and many more.

In 2012, Viceroy released a slew of chart topping, well received singles, including the pop gems “Chase Us Around”, “While We’re In Love”, and the dance floor filling, “Only Takes”. On the remix front, Viceroy has worked with well established artists such as Maroon 5, Passion Pit, Two Door Cinema Club, Yelle, The Knocks, and St. Lucia. Already shaping up to be a momentous year for this remarkable producer, 2013 has seen Viceroy release “Dream Of Bombay” along with the next edition of his now infamous “Jet Life” remix series with a funk-filled rework of Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It”. Most recently, Viceroy has teamed up with New York City’s French Horn Rebellion on “FridayNights”, an all new original track featuring Robert Perlick-Molinari’s crooning vocals and ear-catching bouncing grooves.

With demand for his brand of dance music rising, Viceroy has brought his infectious sound to stages around the world – playing alongside such respected names such as Diplo, Theophilus London, Miami Horror, Oliver, and Treasure Fingers, while continuing to keep summer the only season in your upcoming forecast.

Trend Watch: Music Festival Style

3 May

Photo: Refinery29 SF Launch Party

Last Thursday, I attended the Refinery29 SF launch party and mingled with San Francisco’s fashionistas and ‘os. A few days before the event, I had my usual mini panic attack (like most girls do before an event) and remembered coming across the cutest dress from a recent email sent over by A|X Armani Exchange about their event at Coachella.

Only a few days before the Refinery29 SF launch party, I raced over to the store and bought the Flutter Sleeve Mini Dress by A|X Armani Exchange that caught my eye while going through my inbox. Saved!  All in all, it was an awesome night and the dress was perfect for the party.

Wondering if there are any other fun ways to wear the dress? Check out Vanessa Hudgens below as she belted the dress and slouched it down below her shoulders for a more casual look.

Find even more casual “music festival style” below on celebs like Penn Badgley, Kellan Lutz, Ian Somerhalder, Jamie Chung, Nina Dobrev, Shiloh Fernandez, Heather Hemmens, Jessica Stroup, Matt Barr, Taryn Manning, Evan Ross and Marielle Jaffe.

They all showed off their best festival fashion in Armani Exchange last month in Indio, CA, throughout Coachella’s countless shows and soirees.

And on Saturday, April 16, A|X Armani Exchange and 944 Magazine hosted the second annual NEON CARNIVAL in Indio, CA. When they weren’t hitting the dance floor, guests enjoyed carnival games and rides like bumper cars, kite runners and slides, and noshed on old-school carnival snacks. Also featured at the festivities: Case–Mate provided a photo booth for guests to snap shots and capture the memories as they were displayed on the hangar wall.  5Gum dished out treats for guests to enjoy while Jose Cuervo Platino and Ciroc Vodka kept the soiree alive well into the morning hours with each of their signature cocktails.

Sounds like a fun time and a great way to bring fashion and music together through timely events! Check out all the style below and tell me what do you think of this trend! How would you “rock” it?
