It’s been a minute since we heard a new tune from Theophilus London. This track will appear on his forthcoming mixtape, Prince TL. However, it did not make the cut for his debut album Timez Are Weird, which drops on July 19th.

Back on that same old TL shit. Homie hasn’t changed his sound much for his debut album. Theo liberated the first single from his first studio album at midnight last night. The song Why Even Try comes from Lovers Holiday, which is set to drop February 8th.

Here is the second visual offering from the homie Theophilus London’s I Want You mixtape. The video was shot in Amsterdam and Brussels, while he was on his European tour. Onat & Fabian are responsible for the production of the video. TL loves that gold watch, I’ve never seen him without it on.

Here is the final leak, and the title track “I Want You.”  Its a Marvin Gaye sample and Theophilus had this to say about the track:

This track sparked the whole mixtape!
I bought every single Marvin Gaye record i could fine.. and spent an entire 2 months listening while working on my album in LA. I then bought the separate parts from the original song I WANT YOU by Marvin Gaye and
recorded my verse and singing in LONDON. I put all the different instruments together for the new wave version :)It was a pleasure Covering this song! I really Want my Listeners! and this is my way of telling them!!I am very Excited for people to hear my new desires and I just want Girls to wake up and put this on! eat their breakfast smoke their brains out and enjoy I WANT YOU

Hit the Jump for the full track list and a stream/download link of the track.  Check back tomorrow for the full mixtape (more…)

Now that the Theophilus London/Mickey Factz show is in the past, its time to get back on our grind.  Special thanks to MaxB, we got Theo to leak us a track of his upcoming mixtape I Want You due to be released April 28th (CHECK OUT THE INTERVIEW!!!).  Below, you can hear/download that song called “Oops”, plus another track off I Want You called “Accept The New” which I’ve been loving.

Im also throwing in three more tracks that have have been released recently.  The first is the new LCD Soundsystem single off their upcoming album This Is Happening.  I’m a huge fan of the steady, head nodding piano/drum beat, and the synths add in a nice relaxing element.  The entire album is streaming here.  The next song just got leaked today and it’s off The National‘s upcoming album High Violet.  The song, called “Afraid of Everyone,” is a dark, almost spooky ballad that erupts with a National-esque drum beat and intense lyrics over some background strings.  It’s a dirrrty track, take a listen.  The last song I’m including is a remix of the song “We Are The People” by Empire Of The Sun.  It’s a classic electro jam, but I find this remix to be a little more accessible.  It’s easy listening with a little Daft Punky flavor…  Hit the jump for streams and downloads of all 5 tracks: (more…)

In a rap game saturated with auto-tune and braggadocious lyrics, it’s beyond refreshing to get introduced to Theophilus London. This guy is so ahead of his time his parents haven’t met yet he doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page yet. If you already have heard about the Brooklynite trip-hop/neo-soul artist then you’ll enjoy this doc. If you need some convincing read more for key tracks and download links. I’m telling you guys, this dude is chalk-full of talent and is for sure the future of hip-hop…

Max talked about this kid from Bed-Stuy Brooklyn not too long ago. This video is extremely representative of this dudes music and urbanity, displaying an array of styles and objects from the 80’s. Expect to hear more about London soon.
