Theophilus London - I Want You
How? How did I miss this?
Theophilus London crafts some of the most truly ambitious mixtapes I have ever heard. The range of influence alone on these things is unbelievable. At the core it is hip-hop, but he manages to wrap it in so many different layers and skins. Flowing seamlessly from 1970’s funk and to 1980’s pop. R&B. Jazz. Dance. Even adult contemporary. All done in Theo’s own cheeky style. It’s like he has hijacked the radio stations, layering his rhymes and grooves all over the place. His music is just alot of fun.
Back in April he released his most recent mixtape, I want You that you can download for free over on DJ Booth. If you visit his myspace you will find his two other mixtapes that are just as good as I Want You, I promise.
He also just recently released a new single on Mt. Dew’s Green Label Sound called “Humdrum Town”. So don’t forget to grab that too.
