Make way for the funklordz. Montreal based duo Dave 1, and P-Thugg, or better known as their “Chromeo” moniker are back with the second track from their “Head Over Heels” album roll out called “Bedroom Calling” featuring “The-Dream.”
Chromeo, funk makers extraordinaire have been seemingly out of the game for over three years, with their last official project being “White Women”, which dropped in 2014. Since then, Chromeo have been laying low working on music, and playing one off shows and festivals, until November of this past year rolled around. Chromeo shocked their listeners by announcing they were working on their 5th studio album, and first project in three years: “Head Over Heels”, and subsequently dropped the bouncy smash hit “Juice” less than one week later.
“Bedroom Calling” stays true to Chromeo’s signature style which die-hard fans will pick up right away, and newcomers will quickly learn to love. While R&B powerhouse The-Dream brings the vocals and melody’s he’s praised for, Chromeo brings the energy, top notch production, and pure funk they do oh so well.
“Here’s a little something from the album. We call this one Bedroom Calling and it features our favorite R&B genius auteur: The-Dream. We’ve been obsessed with him since Fast Car and Yamaha and we’ve been wanting to get him into Chromeo world for years. We’re so happy he unleashed his inner El Debarge for this one.” - Chromeo
Chromeo last came to Toronto in 2015 where they played a free show at Nathan Phillips Square as part of “Panamania”, in conjunction with the 2015 Pan Am Games. If you’ve been itching to see them live since then, you’ve been out of luck. But as of January 29th, 2018 your wish has been granted. Chromeo has announced their first tour in over three years, the “Head Over” Heels” World Tour with special guests “Phantoms”, and “Pomo”. Chromeo will be hitting The Danforth Music Hall in Toronto on July 2nd, 2018. Make way for the funklordz.
