Chromeo

When he's not busy getting his Ph.D. in French literature, David Macklovitch spends his time making music with Patrick Gemayel as Chromeo, where they assume the names Dave 1 and P-Thugg, respectively. After forming in 2001, the "electrofunk" band released its debut, She's in Control, in 2004 and had an unexpected hit single in "Needy Girl." Sounding like equal parts Atomic Dog-era George Clinton, Rick James and any number of R&B-inflected synth-pop bands of the '80s, Chromeo's synthesis of disparate elements manages to sound fresh and lively rather than like some kind of revival act.
