Here’s What Chromeo’s Dave 1 Is Currently Obsessed With

Welcome to VICE News’ new culture series “Currently Obsessed,” where tastemakers from the worlds of music, film, TV, art, and public life tell us what they’re consuming — or what’s consuming them — right now, and why.

To kick off the series, we tapped David Macklovitch, better known as Dave 1, or half of the electro-funk duo Chromeo. (The other half is Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel.)

Known for injecting humor and gags into their music, Chromeo featured long legs and high heels, including their own, on each of their last four album covers: Fancy Footwork, Head Over Heels, Business Casual, and White Women.

As for Dave 1’s own guilty pleasures? Watch to find out.

Chromeo’s latest album, Head Over Heels, received a Grammy nod for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. The group released a video for their single “Don’t Sleep” in December.

Nu:Logic – Brown Shoes – Official Video

Hospital Shop – https://www.hospitalrecords.com/shop/release/nulogic/nhs231-what-i39ve-always-waited-for/#tracks-NHS231DDS
iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/what-ive-always-waited-for/id608308916?uo=4&at=11l9mP

This is the second in a series of videos from the Nu:Logic album “What I’ve Always Waited For”, which is due for release on Hospital Records on March 25th. Working with director Nez Savaşkan we wanted to create visual accompaniments for each of Nu:Logic’s tunes which captured the vibe and feeling of each track. This resulted in a series of fourteen simple vignettes not conforming to the standard conventions you might expect from a promo video.

It’s important to remember these are video edits… If you want the full Nu:Logic audio experience make sure you pre-order your copy of the new album now, here

Nu:Logic is a collaborative partnership between Hospital stalwarts Nu:Tone and Logistics. Individually, the Gresham brothers have released a total of seven long players already on Hospital, each to great critical acclaim. The sum of their combined powers is oozing with the kind of soulful drum + bass, which is the foundation of the Hospital label and will satisfy long term fans who hanker after the golden days of the genre.

Having brought us the Nu:Logic “New Technique” EP in 2010 and the recently released follow up single “Morning Light / Grizzly”, the duo now bring us their highly anticipated debut album “What I’ve Always Waited For”.

Opening with the calm, mellow soothing sounds of “Morning Light” we are taken through a variety of styles across the 14-track album. Vocal-driven cuts are peppered throughout the album and there’s some top collaborations in there, including “Everlasting Days (ft. Lifford)” with its warm, uplifting vibe, the growling spoken swagger of “We Live There (ft. DRS)” and the blissed out “Shoot Me Down (ft. Robert Manos)”.

Elsewhere, don’t miss out on the excellent “Start Again (ft. S.P.Y)” with the raw, bass heavy menacing tones, as well as the meditative title track “What I’ve Always Waited For” which is all whirring atmospherics and pattering drums. Two interludes “Escape Pod” and “Dusk” successfully segment the album into thirds. With so many musical gems to choose from, one thing is for sure – this has been worth waiting for.
