Monakr Gives RAC & Matthew Koma's "Cheap Sunglasses" a Tropical Touch

I’ve been watching Miami Vice reruns on Netflix lately, and aside from an urge to start dressing in pastel linen suits with Espadrils, and doing as much cocaine as I can get my hands on, its also got me on an 80s music kick. So it piqued my curiosity to see RAC had teamed up with Matthew Koma for a rework of the ZZ Top classic “Cheap Sunglasses,” and that MONAKR had lent his touch to the remix. It’s a breezy, smooth, a little ditty, which I suppose a lot of people would classify as tropical house, which (all genre-whoring aside) is pretty apt description. RAC has always had a bright, shiny sound, and MONAKR flips it with some shimmery, Caribbean goodness. Play at high volume in the sunshine.
