Bio: Chromeo

Imagine, if you will, a yacht. It's forged of gold and strong African teak, bobbing gently at anchor somewhere between the French Riviera and Detroit. A statue of the late Roger Troutman is affixed to the stern like a guardian angel. The ladies of Klymaxx wander the decks serving strawberries and cream on silver platters. Sylvester himself is the skipper, and Hall & Oates are down below, keeping the engines in shipshape. This is the S.S. Chromeo, and the two men who create the smoothest of music under the same moniker are at rest aboard, preparing for another global voyage of lovers' funk ambassadorship. Here we have Dave 1, the suave professor, the voice and intellect, enjoying a ros as he ponders French literature. And with him we have the one and only P-Thugg, the brawn and the body, sipping on the ghetto cocktail known as Thug Passion and proudly going through his mental rolodex of jeep beats and funky flourishes.

The men of Chromeo are about to release Business Casual, which is their third full-length album and a testament to the growth and further sophistication the band has undergone over the many years they've been collaborating. After their sophomore release, Fancy Footwork, pushed them into the stratosphere of party-rocking, club-banging, and heart-thrilling electrofunk, we might consider Business Casual their postgraduate work. Where does a group go after mastering their craft? Do they rest on their laurels? Do they retreat into self-parody? Neighbor, please.

Chromeo, in 2010, have pushed forward into yet newer levels of song craft and body moving music that is respectfully indebted to its noble inspirations while still being fully contemporary. Are there lush string arrangements on "Don't Walk Away"? Do we have Moroder-esque analog synth layers draped all over "Don't Turn The Lights On"? Is there a fully authentic French ballad (don't forget, Dave and P are of the Qubcois persuasion and will never abandon those roots) in "J'ai Claqu la porte"? Well yes, actually, to all of the above. But what's this we have here? The flip side of Chromeo, the emotional gangster tracks, are still here on Business Casual, represented by titles such as "Hot Mess," "I'm Not Contagious," and "You Make It Rough." And, newly added to the roster, we have the straight-up pop, vanilla in the best sense (creamy and smooth), of "The Right Type," a get-up-and-go tune in the greatest 80s tradition, and the album closer, "Grow Up," which almost sounds like golden era Billy Joel backed up by Cameo. How real is that?

Lyrically, Dave continues to mine the rich vein of affairs of the heart. Is there really any other topic that Chromeo needs to cover? Arrogant ladies, dancefloor seduction, boudoir skills, love gone wrong, and knights in shining armor... Chromeo does all this and more with their trademark Franco-insouciance-that-borders-on-coolness and their always sexy worldliness (pause). In these uncertain times of financial upheaval and musical mediocrity, Chromeo's Business Casual is a testament to the fact that inspirational funk shall always prevail. Vive le Chromeo!

Bio: RÜFÜS DU SOL

A lot can change in two years, and for a band selling out shows in places they’d never been two years ago, a lot certainly has changed. What hasn’t changed for RÜFÜS is a unique approach to their song writing that has seen them gather an ever increasing swathe of fans all over the world. Two years after their platinum selling debut album, RÜFÜS return with their follow up record, BLOOM, and as the title would suggest, the band have blossomed into the tour-de-force that ATLAS hinted at. BLOOM picks up right where Altas, left off, it’s all dreamy vocals, moody synths and driving kicks. This time delivered with the confidence of a band who understand their place in the world; as musicians and as people. There is a maturity in Jon, James and Tyrone’s production work that comes from spending two years on the road testing songs to new audiences who in some places have never heard RÜFÜS. They’ve figured out what works and more importantly, why. Written between Sydney and Berlin, BLOOM, is the product of isolation and saturation. The songwriters either being alone and away from friends and family, or at home soaked in familiarity. The only constant in the writing process was the three songwriters spending each day writing with the goal of creating a feeling, as opposed to writing a song. They start each project with an idea of a feeling, a setting, a location or a scene in their minds, and try to soundtrack that moment. Five months on from release of BLOOM it feels as if RÜFÜS have already broken the shackles of the 2nd album syndrome. The first single You Were Right, is already certified Platinum and won the ARIA award for Best Dance Release. While the 3rd offering Innerbloom, at 9 minutes 38 seconds, is an ode to everything the band loves about dance music and everything BLOOM means to them, Tyrone explains; "For us personally, we were each drawn to electronic music because of the euphoric nature of it. At its core, it brings people together to dance of course. I’m sure I’m not the first person to say this, but our favourite artists are our favourite because we’ve shared moments listening to them with friends or family that you can’t recreate. Moments that you remember forever. We really wanted to create those moments for other people with the songs from BLOOM. Innerbloom is probably the most personal song we’ve ever written in terms of where we are at as people. Hopefully, it can create for other people, some of the moments we’ve shared with each other and friends listening to our favourite songs...…" Using layered synths, drums and warm vocals, Jon, James and Tyrone have built a soundscape and aesthetic that is entirely familiar, yet distinctly their own. Written between Sydney & Berlin and completed in hotels in Montreal and New York, BLOOM is written, recorded and produced by RÜFÜS.
