Here we have Dave 1, the suave professor, the voice and intellect, and with him we have the one and only P-Thugg, the brawn and the body, virtuoso musicians, walking hip hop encyclopedias, and – as they say – “the only successful Arab/Jew partnership since the dawn of human culture”.
Does analog synth wizard P-Thugg still rock nightgown-sized DipSet t-shirts, talk through a keyboard, and have the thousand-yard stare of a well-practiced gangster? You bet he does. Does vocalist and guitarist Dave 1 still dress like a French Lit professor from 1965? Can he still ask you to twerk without coming off like an imposter? You better believe he can.
The first single album Destination Overdrive was born in 2003, the real debut album, She's in Control, released in 2004, defined Chromeo and started their music career and the song "Needy Girl" became a world wide club hit. After a three year break, they released a second album, Fancy Footwork, which was also positively reviewed and was a real mainstream culture breakthrough. The album took them on a two-year world tour performing in festivals such as Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds in the UK, Fujirock in Japan, Iceland Airwaves in Iceland, Pemberton Music Festival in Canada and Coachella, Bonnaroo, Rothbury Festival and Lollapalooza in the US. Chromeo released their third studio album entitled Business Casual on September 14, 2010, and is about to present it to you in Prague.
So there you have it: Chromeo...the sex, the beats, the dream, the suits, the gloves, the laughs, the tears, the past and the future. Enjoy.
