Joining a storied lineage of family entertainers like the Isleys, the Allmans and the Baldwins, Grammy-nominated siblings A-Trak and Dave 1 have made their mother happy and finally released music together. Under the moniker The Brothers Macklovitch, the turntable icon and Chromeo frontman meld funky influences from their formative days (Jamiroquai, Brand New Heavies, Masters At Work) with crisp production and soulful hooks, aided by rising R&B star Leven Kali on debut Fool’s Gold single “Give Love To Get Some”—listen here.
The new track is part of a two-song release, with the second track and remixes of “Give Love To Get Some” coming imminently. In addition, The Brothers Macklovitch will make their livestream debut this Saturday, May 30 at 8:00p.m. ET on #BeApp, a new social streaming platform that brings live music moments to the home.
Dave “Dave 1” Macklovitch leads Grammy-nominated funk all-star duo Chromeo alongside high school best friend Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel. The Montreal natives rose to prominence with their seminal 2007 release Fancy Footwork, heralding the dawn of the ‘80s electro-funk revival. Their fifth album, Head Over Heels, was released in 2018 to widespread acclaim.
A-Trak is the alias of world-renowned DJ and producer Alain Macklovitch, founder of Fool’s Gold Records and the Goldie Awards and one half of the irreverent supergroup Duck Sauce with Armand Van Helden. Equal parts DJ (a DMC champion at 15, to boot) and entrepreneur, the Grammy-nominated A-Trak has helped developed the careers of major acts like Kid Cudi and Flosstradamus while continually pushing the boundaries on his own music and business endeavors.
