The Independent Culture

Toronto funkateers Chromeo, self-billed as "the only successful Arab/Jewish partnership since the dawn of human culture", certainly make an odd couple.

Linen-suited singer Dave 1 resembles a Miami Vice gun runner, Vocoder-abusing sidekick P-Thugg more like an extra from a Dr Dre video. Nevertheless, they've been making glorious digi-funk for three albums, and the super-snappy Business Casual is no exception, blending Hall & Oates and early Whitney into an irresistible dessert.
