“The concept was to mix sweaty dancefloor power with honest feelings. It’s the duality in our identify: Chrome, the shimmery electronics, and Romeo, the heartfelt romantics.”

The duo rose to prominence with their 2007 second album ‘Fancy Footwork’ which pioneered the 80s electro-funk revival. Their fourth album ‘White Girls’ peaked at No.1 on the US Dance chart in 2014 and their most up-to-date album was launched in 2018 titled ‘Head Over Heels’.
