Biography

Arriving out of seemingly nowhere, he’s one of those names that you could have easily slept on. One day he’s off at school playing local parties under a different moniker, and the next he’s off earning his way to the forefront of the nu-disco world. With little to no outside help, this success story has found himself stapled to the top of the ever so powerful Hype Machine charts with a genre of “summertime disco” that is unparalleled by noone. Creating a genre of his own, Viceroy has found himself being featured in nearly every publication in existence including the famed Vice Magazine, 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 releases on various labels including his well received original pop-gem’s “Chase Us Around”, “While We’re In Love”, and “Dream Of Bombay”, along with the dance floor filling, “Only Takes”. On the remix front, this momentous year continued with a large section official remixes for such well established artists as Passion Pit, Two Door Cinema Club, Yelle, The Knocks, and St Lucia.

Now, after headlining multiple tours across the country and touring both Europe, Australia, Canada, South & Central America, all the while sharing some of the world’s most biggest stages with such respected names as Diplo, Theophilus London, Miami Horror, Oliver, Plastic Plates and Treasure Fingers, Viceroy has began to teach even the coldest soul that it can in fact be, “Summertime, All The Time”.
