It's been a long time coming, but I am happy to say - Chromeo has arrived. Ten years after their debut album, the duo of Dave 1 and P-Thugg, have finally found a larger audience, thanks in part to killer sets at Coachella and a string of hot singles.
Their latest, Jealous (I Ain't With It), is the fourth single from their upcoming album, White Women, and today they released an energy-packed remix from DJ Hoodboi. Where the original was a straight-forward pop song, built on guitar and steady synth, the remix brings the tempo up with hand claps and drizzling synth, not to mention some nice vocal edits.
The guys are in the middle of their "Come Alive" tour, with many dates already sold out, including a stop at Lincoln Hall on May 5th. Showing Chicago some extra love, they'll also be playing a DJ set at Evil Olive on Saturday. Sorry to say, but that looks to be sold out too, with limited tickets being sold at the door. Don't fear, they'll be back to play this year's Lollapalooza, making them 3 for 3 on sold out shows!
Catch them if you can, and head over to their store to pre-order White Women.
