Chromeo – Don’t Turn The Lights On (Aeroplane Remix)

Dave loved to relax on the baby g to P's rendition of Chocolate Rain

I promise this is going to be my last post for a while about both Chromeo and Aeroplane because even i’m getting bored of hearing their names. So as a finale to this chapter in my blog life, what could be better than Aeroplane remix of Chromeo? Potentially a Chromeo remix of Aeroplane? … It’s he first one… not sure i could have said Aeroplane or Chromeo more in that sentence if I had tried.

The track is in classic Aeroplane style starting subtle then dropping into not only ivory mashing piano love, but also a synth solo as good as any this side of Russ Chimes. Be warned though, it is a bit of a grower so give it about three listens.

Also, I have to link you to Tour De Force’s new mix, because, instead of doing it mostly because he was a mate, this mix is actually worthy of some serious praise, perfect blend of new tunes and tunes you probably haven’t heard before all mixed perfectly into an hour of “sit back and wish you were on the beach” audio goodness.

Chromeo And Daryl Hall

Just a quick one for those who love the 80’s and Chromeo. This passed me by but in 2008 half of 80’s synthpop duo Hall and Oates teamed up with Chromeo to make sweet eletro synth pop love.

If you wanna watch all the episodes go here… There are also other really good collaborations (Toots and the Maytals, Smokey Robinson etc)

New Chromeo album is imminent and is going to be called “Business Casual”, and don’t worry I will be keeping you informed of all the details… whether you like it or not.

And for my First Trick… ChromeOMG!!

See I never thought I would ever be one of those people who was so obsessed with anything that their friends had to have “the talk” with you before you started having delusions that you would much rather perform an obscene act upon a close family member than lose said thing out of your life, but i think that time might have come… Not to perform an obscene act on a loved one, but for my friends (if they truly are my friends) to intervene. But until they do, my love affair with Chromeo will continue.

 Now, I’m not one to teach or preach about anything… so I won’t. If you want to know more about them then I suggest you read a blog that starts with the following

“Montreal based electrofunk….”

“Talkbox wielding synthpopers” (actually I like that one…)

or

“Dave (Dave Maklovitch) 1  and Pee (Patrick Gemayel) Thug..”

for more information. All I’m gonna do is say is listen to their new track (link below) then listen to everything else that they have ever made, then listen to all the remixes ever made, then once you have done that, let me know, and we can all relax, safe in the knowledge that Chromeo are by far the best thing to happen to music… ever (I don’t actually believe that… much)

Actually, to prove the obsession even more (I have no idea why I am doing this to myself) follow the link below and see that this isn’t the first time the madness has been realised in blog form.
