“Risk and necessity are proven catalysts of insight and innovation. The geniuses of history did not procure the profound by sitting by and being cautious not to make a stir.

From the moment I started speaking with Patrick on the phone, I was laughing the entire time of the interview. I didn’t know P-Thugg was this hilarious. Not even the conventional way of funny. It’s the tone of his voice, the way he reacts to a question. He’s charming and pleasant to talk to. Chromeo is a partnership of P-Thugg (Patrick Gemayel) and Dave 1 (David Macklovitch). Chromeo has always embodied this sex appeal that ...
“I would say, based on the shift in values in society and in education that there’s a very romantic notion of being a creator.
