Oh Chromeo, Chromeo! Wherefore art thou Chromeo?

New York and Montreal. That's where.

Childhood BFFs Dave 1 and P-Thugg are electrofunk duo Chromeo. They were given their big-break back in 2000 when producer/DJ Tiga signed them to his Turbo Recordings label. They released their second album Fancy Footwork in 2007 and hit the festival circuit this year playing Lollapalooza, Coachella, Bestival and Electric Picnic to name but a few. I missed them at EP but all reports suggest they hit the nail on the head and played an absolute stormer of a set.

After seeing them at the picnic, a climaXXX friend went looking online for a non-remixed to within an inch of its life-version of any of their songs. And man, what she found is just about the best thing I've seen since James Murphy took me behind the bike shed in 4th class. Daryl Hall, from Hall & Oates (aces), has been rounding up musicians and getting them over to his fancy gaff to record each others' songs. Lucky for us, the Chromeo boys made the cut. Check it out below.

If you are knocking around London on December 13th, get the Christmas off to a cracking Chromeo start. Myself and above-mentioned friend got our tickets here. Get on it.
