A-Trak and Chromeo’s Dave 1 have dropped their first original song as The Brothers Macklovitch, “Give Love to Get Some” featuring R&B singer Leven Kali.
The track comes after the pair—who are, in fact, brothers—remixed Raphael Saadiq’s “So Ready” earlier this year. “Give Love to Get Some” is a triumphant slice of dreamy-yet-dancey electronic funk resplendent with brass.
On Twitter, A-Trak described the sound of The Brothers Macklovitch: “The vibe of this project is basically the music we were listening to when we first started going to record shops in the mid ’90s… that acid jazz era.. Me’shell, Jamiroquai, Brand New Heavies, Incognito & Talkin Loud, Omar, Masters at Work etc.”
The Brothers Macklovitch plan to package “Give Love to Get Some” and upcoming remixes with another song as a larger release at a later date. The duo have performed together previously but will make their livestream debut tomorrow, May 30 on #BeApp.
