New Interview: Chromeo On Pets, Rap Fashions, And Yacht Rock

Say hello once again to Chromeo; the dazzling, sleek electro-pop duo of Dave1 and P-Thugg. In this episode of “The 5,” Chromeo, (who’ve released two full-lengths and a mix compilation for the DJ Kicks series) talk about some stuff… What stuff? That’s the perfect question. It would appear that their love of quasi-ironic, ZZ-Top/”Legs“-referencing cover art is only matched by their dislike of domestic animals.

Chromeo also discusses the equal importance of Hall & Oates and Steely Dan, and the sartorial sensibilities of some of their favorite rappers.

Check out the brand-new MTV interview below, watch Chromeo’s “Fancy Footwork” video, and listen to their latest single, “Night By Night” now.
