NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 02/14/14 -- Leave it to two of the world's greatest seduction artists, Dave 1 and P-Thugg of Chromeo, to pull off the Valentine stunt of officially announcing the release of their fourth studio album today by way of Craigslist personal ad! White Women, slated for release on May 12th via Big Beat / Atlantic, sees the self-proclaimed "Larry David of Funk" outfit writing and recording their most fully realized body of work to date, honing in on a sound that highlights their indie hero legacy while paying homage to some of their greatest artistic inspirations by way of well-crafted, modern pop songs and iconic imagery. Ranging from sultry R&B hooks to classic rock riffs with their always hilarious and charmingly vulnerable lyrics, White Women is their reinterpretation of the late great 70s and 80s disco funk era that gave way to the culture from which they were born.
A band with a history like Chromeo is no stranger to breaking through barriers and White Women, the joint effort of perhaps the world's most successful Arab / Jewish partnership, is the obvious, ambitious next step for a duo whom naysayers once dismissed as a mere tongue-in-cheek project. Now, almost ten years later, it's as if the caricatures of Dave 1 and P-Thugg have come to life as Chromeo's exponential growth and fan emulation continue thanks to their signature high brow / low brow sensibility, which is both immediately recognizable and eminently relatable. Everything from the Helmut Newton-inspired album title to the meticulously designed and iconic Surface To Air artwork, to the high concept music videos and outrageous live appearances.... that all contain that certain special Chromeo je ne sais quoi... have aided in what has become one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of 2014.
Dave and Pee kicked off the album campaign in late 2013 with collaborations with Snarkitecture, MILK Studios, Tumblr and Surface To Air, made TV history with their live version of "Sexy Socialite" with Death From Above 1979 as their backing band on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and sold out shows in the US and Europe within minutes of announcing them. 2014 sees the boys coming even stronger, with the just released video for "Come Alive" featuring Toro y Moi, Coachella Festival performances, a Red Rocks headlining show, the 26 date Come Alive Tour across the US, UK and Europe (many of the shows are already sold-out, see list below) and many more exciting details to be revealed as album release date gets closer. Until then, get the first look today as Chromeo reveal the next chapter in their wedding-themed adventure with their cover art for White Women -- see below.
Every day is Valentine's Day with Chromeo but White Women will officially be in stores and available digitally worldwide on May 12th!

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today.
