Chromeo Studio Tour

One of the more popular synth groups out there today is Chromeo, which consists of Patrick Gemayel and David Macklovitch.  They’ve risen to popularity with their synth created music that traces its roots back to 80’s music – and it’s known as electrofunk.  Gemayel heavily relies on his slew of synthesizers which includes his MicroKorg and its built in vocoder.

As part of their upcoming tour, the two have released a small video documentary which delves into their collection of new and vintage equipment.  They also discuss their music making process and what it takes to get the thoughts in their head into notes on a screen.
