Chromeo Parc Jean-Drapeau, Montreal QC, August 1
Published Aug 02, 2014Montreal electro-funk duo Chromeo were hailed as hometown heroes as they turned the Green Stage into a giant dance party while they played their biggest hits both new and old. David "Dave 1" Macklovitch and Patrick "P-Thugg" Gemayel worked with an array of drum pads and keyboards, standing behind their iconic women's leg keyboard stands as the audience was bathed in light of many colours. Despite a rocky beginning, including mistiming the intro chord to "Hot Mess," the duo powered through, delivering hit after hit to a euphoric, sweat-drenched crowd.
The bouncy electronics, Dave 1's smooth vocals and P-Thugg's well-employed talkbox accents kept the good times rolling and the crowd dancing and singing along to their catchy choruses. The twosome even pulled off slower fare, like the kitschy, boppy "Momma's Boy," with flair. The duo worked the crowd really well, especially P-Thugg and his trusty talkbox. Ending with current radio hit "Jealous (I Ain't With It)," Dave 1 and P-Thugg gave back to the city where they got their start; their Osheaga set was a nice, hour-long "thank you."
