While fans are eagerly waiting for Chromeo's new album, the "Night By Night" remixes just keep on coming. The latest revamp of the duo's neon-lit, funktastic original was produced by Baltimore-based producer Robots With Rayguns (aka Lucas Smith). Smith stays true to his reputation and injects his new version of "Night By Night" with a potent dose of dancefloor bliss. Smith adds a throbbing and finely cut synth loop to Chromeo's original, which juxtaposes nicely with David's vocals. Highly recommended.
On a related note, Chromeo's sophomore album, titled "Business Casual," will hit stores August 17 on Atlantic Records. The album promises to bring more of the duo's sentimental-yet-intelligent electronic pop music that is inspired by 70's and 80's oft-overlooked pop progenitors such as Hall & Oates, Zapp, and Rick James.
Mixed by longtime Chromeo collaborator Phillipe Zdar and featuring artwork by the multifaceted Paris design collective Surface 2 Air, "Business Casual" marks a "continuation of the fierce funk jams that Chromeo do best - as well as a new sophisticated, mature direction with more lovers' ballads woven into the mix," according to a press release.
