Last night Samsung kicked off their Summer Mix Series with electro-funk duo Chromeo hosting an intimate party and panel discussion about their music. Guests made their way to the Mondrian Soho's secret library room, where Dave 1 and P-Thugg excitedly greeted them. Samsung set up a Twitter contest where users could tweet Chromeo questions, and 3 of them would be awarded the new Samsung Shape speaker which was on display at the event. Dave 1 even took the time to answer many more than 3 questions on Twitter to the fans' surprise. Soon after, cocktails and small bites were brought in as the crowd mingled. P-Thugg talked about the music making process with us, and how some songs can be finished in 10 minutes while others can take months. We also chatted with Dave 1 about French literature—his field of study at Columbia—and enjoyed conversing about Celine, Flaubert, and his personal favorite, Marcel Proust.
