Chromeo is Dave One
and Pee Thugg
, also known as David Macklovitch and Patrick Gemayel. Two best friends that have been doing music together since they were kids. Before establishing themselves as a band, Chromeo were making beats for well-known Québec hip-hop acts such as Shades Of Culture
, Sans Pression
and Yvon Krevé
In the summer of 2000, Tiga
, a fan of Obscure Disorder
, stepped to Dave and asked him if he was interested to do an electronic music project on Turbo. In 2001 were signed by Turbo
when they finally put together a demo.
With Chromeo, expect to hear a lot of analog synths, rock guitars, 808's, rhodes and talk box.
