Here's What Chromeo's Dave Chromeo Interview [Official Video] 1 day ago   03:09

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.

“When we started this band, we wanted to take guilty pleasures, we wanted to make those songs that everyone actually loves. We wanted to give that genre of music its kind of nobility again.”

Chromeo Interview [Official Video] Here's What Chromeo's Dave 1 day ago   05:58

Chromeo describe themselves as "the only successful Arab/Jewish partnership since the dawn of human culture."

All wisecracks aside, David Macklovitch (Dave 1) and Patrick Gemayel (P-Thugg) have been making music together since they were kids growing up in Montreal, Canada.

We talk origins and much more in the video above.
