EDIT: I posted a Stevie video on accident! Thanks Kevtron!
Not to be an internet nerd, but I don’t get it… That’s Stevie Wonder in the video, right? Am I missing something? Roger Troutman?
whoa! Good looks Kevtron 3030(your names are cracking me up!). I posted the wrong video. I planned on posting that stevie video in a later post. I posted it instead of the Troutman video I was going to play.
I’m hip to Zapp & Roger, but all I can think of right now is Snoop Dogg’s “Sensual Seduction” video. Ha!
Is anyone out there hip to Chromeo? They had a buzz going about a year ago with their 80’s sound. They also had a couple of underground jammie jams (“Tenderoni”, “Needy Girl”, “Bonafied Lovin”, & “Fancy Footwork”). They’re pretty much the only ones nowadays really bringing it with the Troutman-talkbox vibe.
Here’s a clip of them doing “Tenderoni” at Daryl Hall’s crib:
And here’s another clip of them doing Hall & Oates’ “Family Man”:
Chromeo still has a strong buzz, due to the hipster set accepting them as “ironic” gold. I’m sure you know DJ A-Trak is the keyboard player’s brother, so the hipster connection is deep. At least the fellers are talented.
I don’t think there’s enough focus on the oomph in the production of their songs. They all sound really thin and under-produced, so I have never really gotten into them. I’d see them live though to see the white girls go kerazy!
