Saturday was a wild one here in San Francisco, with countless frustrating show conflicts. If we could have cloned ourselves and gone to everything, we would’ve have. Unfortunately, prior commitments kept us from hitting up the Chromeo show, which we heard was an epic soiree, with Phantoms opening, too. I’m sure the celebrated Montreal electro-funk and nu-disco purveyors dropped their new single with DRAM, Must’ve Been. And I’m sure it was received with much zeal and a whole lot of dancing. At least we get to get down and groovy to the track anytime we want, now that Dave 1 and P-Thugg have dropped a music video for the song off their forthcoming album Head Over Heels. Summery bongos and Chromeo’s signature electro swagger permeate the proper banger. New album Head Over Heels hits the shelves on June 15th. Chromeo will hit the road on an expansive tour this summer, too. Maybe we’ll get to catch them then and make up for missing their headlining show this past weekend. Must’ve Been is available, here.

Electro-funk legends Chromeo have been teasing us for awhile now regarding their next album, and though we still don’t know exactly when Head Over Heels will be released, at least we now know it’s dropping in spring. Dave 1 and P-Thugg have also unveiled a follow up to lead single Juice, even partnering up with R&B/hip hop luminary The-Dream on Bedroom Calling. Chromeo says they’ve been obsessed with The-Dream since Fast Car from his first album. To them, The-Dream is a modern day funk auteur, like Prince or El Debarge, and their new song pays homage to their favorite work of his. Chromeo also announced their expansive world tour this spring, kicking off in Vancouver on April 3rd with a stop in the bay on April 7th at the Fox Theater. Delicious icing on the cake? Electronic project Phantoms will be traveling with them to Oakland, too. Visit Chromeo’s website, here, for more details. For now, we can dance it up and get on down to funkalicious, groovalicious Bedroom Calling, a snazzy strutting R&B funk swooner.

Canadian nu-disco and electro-funk kings Chromeo have revealed a brand new song this week. Dave 1 and P-Thugg teases the arrival of a fifth studio video with Juice, a plump and succulent dose of the pair’s instantly recognizable cheeky lyrics, sultry basslines, and soulful vocals. Juice’s video was shot by Grammy nominated director David Wilson (Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys), and it’s a whole lot of sunshine and fun. Purchase Juice, here, while we wait for news regarding Chromeo’s upcoming 5th album, Head Over Heels.

We all know that Chromeo’s videos are always epic, right? They’re always epic. That Dave 1 and P-Thugg know how to do epic and silly together masterfully. The red hot synthfunk duo released a video today for their song Old 45’s, one of my favorites off recent album White Women, the release that propelled the indie darlings into mainstream success (uh, about time). I’m fond of the song both for how deliciously good it sounds, and because, hey, I collect vinyls and I’m a music head. So, yea. Guess who might be catching them live again come Halloween at Live 105’s Spookfest?

Another stellar remix of the day has got to be this smooth as a baby’s bottom rendition of Chromeo’s exploding hit single Jealous (I Ain’t With It) by London trio Disciples. The tinkling piano, the chilled out groove, the thumping bass, the gentle snares… It’s all so balmy and rapturous. Disciples sure did a number of the tune. The electronic trio recently released their original single Poison Arrow, which is also a must stream jam, particularly if you like Disclosure styled deep house.

There sure are a lot of albums coming out in May that I’m excited for. The long list easily includes Chromeo’s new album White Women, out May 12, which includes songs like Sexy Socialite, Over Your Shoulder, and Jealous (I Ain’t With It) which is Chromeo’s first mainstream radio hit! However, Chromeo isn’t always and only about upbeat funky dance music. Just listen to this brand new reveal, the more downtempo, finger snapping, soothing Ezra’s Interlude, which features Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend. It’s a great sentimental breather in between all those grooving jams. It’s also awesome to hear Ezra doing a style we don’t normally associate with Vampire Weekend.

Let’s finish with a banger for now. The fact that Chromeo is getting played on regular radio rotation speaks volumes about how well they’re doing this year. White Women is out soon, Jealous is exploding the charts, hooray for Chrome-ooooo! It’s about time, too, after being such a power house electrofunk act in the indie scene for so long. If you actually think a Chromeo tune doesn’t have enough banging beats and high energy, this Dillon Francis house remix of Jealous (I Ain’t With It) is for you. DF knows how to bring it. DF plus Chromeo? Rager! Side note: I can’t help but type “cats” and “taco bell” when I’m swiftly and mechanically typing the tags for this post. I wonder why that is? Dillon? HMMM?
