Chromeo and La Roux; The 12inch Mix

No longer do you have to be content with our radio rip of Chromeo’s massive duet with Elly Jackson from La Roux, here we have the full 12inch Mix!

We gave our impressions of the track in the original post, those opinions are only strengthened by the full track, it works so well it’s getting hard to remember how it was with out Elly’s counterpoint. Her part is so simple too, but that’s the beauty of it.

Anyway, here it is, enjoy. You will!

Listen to Chromeo & La Roux’s ‘Hot Mess’ team-up!

So here it is! The internet’s been chatting all week about Chromeo’s forthcoming single ‘Hot Mess’ which features a version of the track laid out as a duet with La Roux’s Elly Jackson and now we can finally hear it.

Annie Mac, in her awesomeness, premiered the song on her Radio 1 show last night and yours truly ripped it for you all to have a little taster. The back and forth vocals aren’t what I was expecting. I was expecting something simple and, almost, tacked on, but Elly’s parts seem both fresh and like they have been there forever. You wouldn’t necessarily think that Elly’s stark vocals would sit well with Chromeo’s slick Electro Funk, but it really does! Colour me impressed!

This might well be the last time we hear Elly’s unique vocals on an ElectroPop track. Despite riding high in the American dance charts with her US re-release of ‘In For The Kill’, Mz. Jackson has stated she wants to move on from synth music. Damn shame really, another one bites the dust, so enjoy this while you can!

Chromeo premiere ‘Hot Mess’ video

I’m still reeling from Chromeo’s mind-blowingly awesome live show in Bristol last week, I’ve seen a lot of gigs this year and this was probably the best.

One week later and the duo drop the video for their forthcoming single ‘Hot Mess’, taken from their current album ‘Business Casual’. The video, directed by Jérémie Rozan,  see Dave and Pee struggling to make it as cops in a woman’s world…a sexy woman’s world!

The single is out 17th January and, as I’m sure you’re all aware of by now, will feature a duet version of the track with La Roux’s Elly Jackson and contains reMixes from the likes of Duck Sauce and Tiga.

Chromeo; ‘Don’t Turn The Lights On’ reMix

Christian Martin’s reMix of Chromeo’s current single is a weird beast, performing the seeming impossible takes of stripping the funk without loosing the vibe.

Pure deep Electro, the mix is still a late night, seductive, jam but the funk Guitar is replaces with techy, but smooth, synths. If you’re going to replace Chromeo’s funk with anything then that fat analog bass is a good call!

‘Don’t Turn The Lights On’ is out now and taken from the album ‘Business Casual’ which is released 14th September. You can pre-order the album here.

Aeroplane featuring Chromeo

The second single from Aeroplane’s ‘We Can’t Fly’ album will be ‘Superstar’ and will feature a special version of the track with a little help from Chromeo!

Returning the favour for Aeroplane’s rad reMix of their ‘Don’t Turn The Lights On’, Chromeo drop the funk and some smooth vocals over the track. Seriously, the pairing of Aeroplane and Chromeo is awesome, and the track sounds like the three of them just jamming out.

‘Superstar’ is released 13th September on Eskimo Recordings.

Chromeo + Aeroplane

Check out this reMix of Chromeo’s hot first single from their forthcoming album, ‘Business Casual’ by Belgium’s almighty Aeroplane.

Great things can always be expected from Aeroplane, and given the source material this should be intensely good. And it is!

Who knows how you increase the Funk on Chromeo? Vito Aeroplane has managed it with this take on ‘Don’t Turn The Lights On’. With the Disco turned up to 11, it’s almost like distilled Chromeo!

Chromeo’s new single!

Well, this is damn exiting!

After months of teasing, studio videos and descriptions of what to expect we can finally wrap out ears round the first cut from Chromeo’s eagerly anticipated new album!

The first single from the bands forthcoming third album, ‘Business Casual’ is ‘Don’t Turn The Lights On’ and it’s just what we wanted from Chromeo. Smooth, sexy Electro with more than it’s fair share of  Funk the track perfectly displays the fact that P-Thugg and Dave 1 have lost absolutely none of their skillz.

Chromeo’s back baby!

Chromeo – Don’t Turn The Lights On

‘Don’t Turn The Lights On’ drops 28th June with the album ‘Business Casual’ following on 14th September.

In the studio with Chromeo

FaderTV recently posted this awesome interview with Chromeo on their YouTube channel. It’s a nice little tour of the studio in Brooklyn where they have shipped all their gear to and are recording the new album in. An all too brief insight into how Chromeo work.

Tiga & Chromeo; What more do you need?

Tiga02

Like a big Montreal mash-up, long-time friends Tiga and Chromeo together on a track sounds too good to be true.

Turbo is just dropping the second selection of reMixes of Tiga’s ‘What You Need’ featuring works by Steve Aoki, A-Trak and Chromeo.

It’s almost a Chromeo track, awash with heavy funk bass and covered in Dave 1’s vocals and makes a pretty good hold over until the duo release their third album this summer..
