The boys over at Solé have taken us on yet another musical journey. If Lionel Richie was fueled by propane, sported reebok pumps and night crawled the mean streets of Venice, you’d end up with something that sounded a little bit like, well… let’s just say we were lucky enough to capture the radness in this month’s Fixtape. Solé Bicycle Co. is pleased to present this month’s Fixtape, from LA’s own,Oliver, the electro-funk super group of Oliver Goldstein & Vaughn Oliver. They’ve been making waves with their deep undertones, infectiously funky riffs, and intergalactic space beats, sure to make your mother shutter. Whether you prowl dark alleys hanging out in various voodoo circles or spend your free time spreading funky mayo on your friend’s sandwiches, this Fixtape is for you. Strap on your helmet and chuck the deuce, because you’re on the highway to hell.

Our man in Mexico, disco + house producer Bufi, has quite the portfolio of remixes. On those remixes, his diversity shines through. Whether it’s dark disco (Little Dragon), slo-mo house (Goldroom) or a proper club tune (Hot Chip) you seek, Bufi has got you covered. This time around Bufi has a go at another compadre of ours, Viceroy. Released in late January, “Dream of Bombay” (featuring the lovely vocals of Chela), is Viceroy at his finest. Bufi takes the disco-electro, new wave sound of the original & punches it into hyperspace – interstellar disco + Hawaiian shirts in space!

Our compadre Viceroy released a new track earlier this week. The song is called “Dream of Bombay” and it features vocals by the lovely & talented Chela. While “Dream of Bombay” still drips with Viceroy’s signature sunshine, this time around it’s less on the tropical side, hitting on a more new wave, electro-disco sound. The vocals are sweet and the sound is warm & dreamy. And just like most other Viceroy tunes, it’s catchy as hell & already making its way up the Hype Machine Popular Chart.
“Dream of Bombay” is out now via Chookie [BUY HERE] and coming soon will be remixes by Bit Funk, Alfa, Bufi & Wax Motif. And if that weren’t enough, there’s a wonderful video to accompany this fantastic tune. Yes, please. And THANK YOU.
