Chromeo Ain’t Jealous

Step back inside me Chromeo… she said … step back inside me take me to your bed… ”

La, la, la. Sorry, we can not help it. That is what we sing when we hear the name of this band.

Chromeo shortBut the romantic electro funk outfit Chromeo (also known as pee & dee to their friends) do that kind of thing to your head.

You know, turning what should be (in right minds) cliched music – and turning it into hypnotic fun.

Now the band bring us ‘White Women’ which includes “Jealous (I Ain’t With It)” and a smashing new video.

The song begins with some groovy solstice vibes and low-beat thumps that spin around in your inner ear to make you tingle with excitement.

The vocals are striated, elegant and refined – without losing any of their purity through synthesis.

The whole thing plunges you into a baptismal pool of living light.

And that presumptuous beat keeps bumping you along.

This is the third millennium incarnation of Soul Train’s ‘Shalamar’… We’re glad the sound is back…

Super-cool ritual purification for your summer soul.
