LA-based producer duo DJDS have debuted a few great singles since last June when they gave us the excellent, pulsing Amber Mark and Marco McKinnis collab “Trees On Fire.” Later that summer, they presented us with a Khalid and Empress Of joint called “Why Don’t You Come On” and then back in March … More »

Legendary funk duo Chromeo haved dropped their 1st track of 2018, “Bedroom Calling” featuring The-Dream, the second track from their forthcoming album Head Over Heels. The band also announced it is set to tour the world this spring and summer. With dates kicking off April 3 in Vancouver, the tour will continue with stops in Paris,
Chromeo keep to a solid routine, with a regiment that commonly follows a basic pattern: album release, a year or two of touring, a year or two of studio work, rinse and repeat. 2018 is officially an “on” year for the FunkLordz, as the duo gears up to deliver their fifth studio album, Head Over Heels, later this year via Big Beat / Atlantic Records.

The track is a smooth, playful, sing-a-long-primed pop number, with The-Dream laying his magnetic songwriting abilities over Chromeo’s buoyant backing arrangement. Accompanying vocals from Dave 1 and vocoded accents from P-Thugg round the tune out, complementing The-Dream’s verse work on “Bedroom Calling” perfectly.
