Chromeo - Bonafied Lovin' (Promo Video)

Ok, I know this isn't a music blog. I'm all about fashion and other such complex issues. But I just finally remembered the name of a Daft Punk style duo that I LOVE!!! CHROMEO. They are fantastic. Ok its very 80s electrofunk...lots of vo-coder (if that's the right word). But I love it. Haven't stopped dancing around the room since I re-discovered them.

Tiger Tem LOVES Chromeo!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this track.

And is it just me or is there a Bobby Brown sample in there?

But this is the best bit. Dave 1 (David Macklovitch) is earning his PhD in French Lit from Columbia. His partner is P-Thugg (Patrick Gemayel)...which leads them to easily call themselves the most successful Arab/Jewish collaboration in music.

Never heard of then before now. Love the song, you're right there is definately some Bobby Brown influence there thrown in with earth, wind and fire and some cameo. I think the 80s funk is making a comeback.

Yeah the guitar riff sounds very EW&F and the vo-coder voice thing reminds me of Cameo. Love both of them too.

80s funk is huge in house right now...and I'm loving it. I guess as hip hop is now pop, we were bound to see more funk oriented influences in other forms of music. Lets hope we get more!
