Viceroy w/French Horn Rebellion
“Summertime, All the Time.” So goes the motto of Austen Afridi (aka Viceroy), the young San Francisco-based DJ and producer who’s rising quickly in the dance music world. The motif is fitting — Afridi specializes in conjuring gin-soaked days under cloudless tropical skies, his beats thrumming just hard enough to keep the floor packed without resorting to the brutalism of dubstep or electro house. He’s been performing as Viceroy for only two years, but he’s already racked up an impressive résumé — Afridi has toured Australia and Europe, and he’s been commissioned by major labels to do remix work for the likes of Maroon 5 and Rihanna. Given Nashville’s pop-oriented proclivities, this particular strain of electronic music (impossibly warm, nonthreatening and vibe-y) has always been welcomed with open arms, so I’ve no doubt a lot of locals are already hip to Afridi and his sunny funk-lite productions. Like-minded New York act French Horn Rebellion opens.
