Chromeo swept the crowd at the Greek Theatre Berkeley last Friday following an impressive performance by Los Angeles electronic trio The Glitch Mob.

Hailing from Montreal, the funk-tastic duo combines sexy guitar riffs and addictive lyrics by David “Dave 1” Macklovitch to go along with Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel’s talk-box retro synthesizer. Macklovitch’s zeal for the spotlight is only surpassed by the crowd’s fondness for this Hollywood playboy. Donning tight leather pants and a jean jacket, Macklovitch danced around the stage with a shiny, mirrored guitar, riffing solos between the sing-along vocals every fan knows and loves.

Gemayel’s stoic presence and groovy synth work sets a solid foundation for Macklovitch’s catchy lyrics, proven by the crowd’s jump-up-and-down eruption during their popular hit “Jealous”. Toward the end of their electro-funk dance party, lady-killer Macklovitch commanded the girls to get on a pair of shoulders and sing along to “Over Your Shoulders”, a sexy confession professing the beauty in women. When one guy in the crowd obeyed the shoulder order, Macklovitch applauded and assured the audience that “of all the ladies, there’s one guy … that would be me!”

It’s wildly entertaining to see Chromeo take the stage with such vigor, enthusiasm and love for themselves and the crowd alike. Their journey over the last 14 years has accumulated a wide following, only strengthened during their performance when they forge personal connections with their fans.
