We here at Run The Trap pride ourselves on our passionate love for the 808’s and our undying devotion to pushing the best trap and hip hop out to our wonderful fans. But when a track like this comes around the bend, trap music or not, something this good, deserves…no, needs to be shared. Chromeo, the French-Canadian facilitators of funk , are back in action dropping the first single off their forthcoming, highly anticipated album White Women. The lead single on the album Over Your Shoulder is more than just funky and soulful; its baby-making music in the smoothest, silkiest sense of the term. With the most old school synths and a vibe so wet it could turn a shag rug into a slip ‘n’ slide, this track could make even Barry White’s hips swing. Chromeo fans have long awaited the disco duo’s return, following their 2010 album Business Casual, and with the release of Over Your Shoulder, it seems that Dave1 and P-Thugg are picking back up right where they left off. This track is best served with red wine and sensual candle light, and delivers that Chromeo groove that I have even caught my father downloading.
The nu-disco track released today in full was previewed last week in a trailer for the album. The 2 minute video features Dave1, Chromeo’s lead vocalist (and ruthless pimp) behind dark wayfarers sitting shotgun a jazzy-looking tricked out funkmobile, with the yin to his yang P-Thugg behind the wheel, and a beautiful, carefree bride zooming through the desert on what is probably a fun-filled funk frenzy. P-Thugg and Dave1, A-trak’s big brother, are set to release their album on little bro’s record imprint Fool’s Gold sometime this year. The track is a free download, which should get anyone who’s down with Chromeo’s undeniably groovy style, more than excited in anticipation for the rest of the album. The two are also going to begin hyping their return with shows scheduled in November, two in the UK and one at New York’s Webster Hall on November 14th. Check out the track below, peep the trailer, grab the download, and stop looking over your shoulder… get down to this like nobody is watching.
