Celebrating 1980s synth sounds , glossy production and glitterball glamour, Chromeo's signature brand of infectious, retro dance music paved the way for the revival in disco-pop which hugely influenced the funky, nostalgic sounds that later took over the charts, clubs and airwaves. Childhood Montreal friend David Macklovitch and Patrick Gemayel started out making hip hop tracks together in their teens and later released homemade, DIY dance beats through Tiga's label Turbo Recordings. Making their name as remixers, they became one of the first acts to be really championed by bloggers in the mid-2000s and their early albums She's In Control (2004) and Fancy Footwork (2007) were compared to the likes of Daft Punk, LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip. La Roux's Elly Jackson and Solange Knowles featured on their breakthrough album Business Casual (2010) and their sexy, strutting sound went on to influence Robin Thicke's massive hit Blurred Lines and Daft Punk's Get Lucky, before they finally crossed over and reached Number 11 in the US charts with acclaimed fourth album White Women (2014).
