Ric Wilson, Chromeo + A-Trak: Pay It No Mind

When musician and activist Ric Wilson got together with DJ and producer A-Trak as well electric-funk duo Chromeo—aka David “Dave 1” Macklovitch (who happens to be A-Trak’s brother) and Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel—their jam sessions included discussions on people’s movements, communism and socialism.

It accompanies an equally lush music video directed by Robert Salazar.
