Back again in 2010, Chromeo has released their third album “Business Casual” and this time the world can’t escape the luscious, 80’s synth-dripping funk this duo has single-handedly brought back to contemporary pop music.
Chromeo is a collaboration between two old friends, Dave 1 and P-Thugg. Their musical partnership has had a natural progression that started with their high school band in Montreal. After high school Dave and P started producing hip-hop under the label Audio Research. It was these hip hop roots that would eventually expose them to the 80’s styles of Hall n’ Oats, Zapp and Billy Joel. Hip-hop greats like Snoop, Dre and Warren G were sampling their music and when Dave and P started buying records they realized all those hooks and beats came from the days of Pac man, acid-wash, shoulder pads and fanny-packs. And those days are most definitely back.
