Chromeo: “Night By Night” (2010)

“Electrofunk”. Did we need one more subgenre of dance music? If you listen to Giorgio Moroder’s music from the 70’s you’ll hear very similar sounds, except we just called it disco then.

Anyway, not a lot going on here lyrically, but that’s not the point. It moves your body and makes you feel good. It has a nice guitar solo and a sweet hook or two. It’s dance candy.

Quoting their Wiki page:

The duo met in the mid-1990s at Collège Stanislas in Montreal. Considering their backgrounds, the two childhood friends jokingly describe themselves as “the only successful Arab/Jewish partnership since the dawn of human culture”.
