Dave 1 chromeo dating
The duo, Dave-1 (David Macklovitch) and P-Thugg (Patrick Gemayel), also has a sharp sense of humor and recently put out a video for “Night by Night” featuring Solange Knowles, in which women spontaneously become pregnant just by listening to their music. I knew she wasn't really pregnant, but I thought she was really his wife (I guess he means wife in the video? But your brother is A-Track [probably best known as Kanye West's DJ] right? SLM: What do you want people to take away from your music? When we first started making music with Chromeo, we were really adamant about being taken seriously and about showing people there’s more to us than just humor in our music, and so on.
You get the impression that these guys, no matter how inspired they are by the '80s, live by a much older credo, the ancient Greek one about wine, women and song (OK, I'm not sure about the wine). But then as we became more successful, we just got a more gracious attitude towards all of it.
