Chromeo: “Personal Effects” (ACL Fest Pop-Up)

Renee Dominguez

We are back from ACL Fest 2023 Weekend One, and boy are we not returning empty-handed. That’s right, KUTX once again collected quite a few exclusive backstage performances that we can’t wait to share with the world…startin’ off strong with electro-funk tour de force Chromeo.

These Montreal multi-instrumentalists have been adding their polish to the genre for two decades now, with an exigent emergence at the start of the millennium that’s made them a household name for a whole generation. And by mingling retro-gold formulas against a modern pop backdrop, Chromeo’s created a flashy, flirty, and carefree character that’s earned them industry-wide collaborations and enormous crossover appeal.

Well, never a pair to be defined by genre terminology, next Valentine’s Day Chromeo boxes up their latest batch of synth-funk drizzled pop chocolate with Adult Contemporary. And as a matter of fact, last Saturday, before taking the Tito’s Handmade Vodka stage at ACL, Dave 1 and P-Thugg stopped by the KUTX tent, dressed to impress with AC‘s Prince-meets-Zapp lead single “Personal Effects”.

Musicians: David “Dave 1” Macklovitch: vocals, Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel: Bass, Talkbox Credits: Producer: Deidre Gott; Audio Engineer: Rene Chavez; Audio Mix: Jake Perlman; Cameras: Renee Dominguez, Isak Kotecki, Michael Minasi, Ivy Flowler; Edit: Deborah Cannon
