Chromeo is P-Thugg, aka Patrick Gemayel and Dave 1, aka David Macklovitch, the older brother of A-Trak. These two friends describe their pairing as “the only successful Arab/Jewish collaboration since the beginning of time.” Their music is romantic electro-funk with a strong 80s influence. In this episode of Rehearsal Space, Patrick and Dave discuss their musical inspirations and answer the question, “How much of your act, if any, is comedy?” They discuss their post-production process, how DAW’s like Logic Studio make music more democratic, and finally they give some unusual advice to musicians just starting out.
