Here’s What Chromeo’s Dave 1 …

Welcome to VICE News’ new culture series “Currently Obsessed,” where tastemakers from the worlds of music, film, TV, art, and public life tell us what they’re consuming — or what’s consuming them — right now, and why.

To kick off the series, we tapped David Macklovitch, better known as Dave 1, or half of the electro-funk duo Chromeo. (The other half is Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel.)

Known for injecting humor and gags into their music, Chromeo featured long legs and high heels, including their own, on each of their last four album covers: Fancy Footwork, Head Over Heels, Business Casual, and White Women.

As for Dave 1’s own guilty pleasures? Watch to find out.

Chromeo’s latest album, Head Over Heels, received a Grammy nod for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. The group released a video for their single “Don’t Sleep” in December.
