I may not give much of a damn about the current state of hip hop but I admit to being intrigued by Theophilus London.
For starters, I like his name. There is a slight undertone of English refinement meeting jazz when I think about him. Theophilus is not too far from Thelonious where names are concerned. Almost anything sounding like Thelonius is a jazz sounding name. With that said, he's scheduled to perform in Montreal this week.
Any artist working with Mark Ronson is good to go in my books. London appears on Hey Boy, one of Record Collection's standout tracks.
As much as I've been intrigued by him, I never made the effort to hear his music until recently. I've enjoyed the tracks of his that I've heard up to this point.
