Daily: Chromeo True Thug Passion
Chromeo is Dave 1 and P-Thugg who together have brought the spirit of funk back into our hearts. Chromeo is a perfect 36-24-36 in our books, they have a true mastery of Electrofunk and use their talents to share stories from the heart. Chromeo's music embodies the struggles of the young and restless. Their songs are wrapped in tails of club banging, party rocking, and of course their firm grasp of heart thrilling "Thug Passion".
Chromeo is on their third studio album entitled Business Casual. Business Casual is full of funky cuts, crisp beats and top notch lyrical craftsmanship. Not only is Chromeo talented musically but they also have a sense of humor. Their work we feel is sincere, but on occasion we can taste a bit of satire. Below we posted a video that Chromeo released titled "When the Night Falls" that really demonstrates what Chromeo has to offer. Be sure to check out their news album "Business Causal" off the Fool's Gold Label. It will not disappoint!
This album is packed with with fresh sounding tracks. This high energy producer created a very danceable album with heavy hitting drops and a sound that is on the rise. Oliver is currently under the Fools Gold label. He has worked with his friends A-Track, Tommy Trash, GTA, and Glantis on projects and recently released "Tuna Melt" which was accompanied by an incredible video. Mechanical Remixes was released 10/22/13 and has been gaining recognition all over the EDM world. Oliver has two other albums out which are worth checking out. You can tell he gets much better as albums come out. These remixes of his 2nd album Mechanical are much more danceable than the original product. Expect Great things out of this young producer, we are looking forward to his next creation. Follow the link to have a listen!
