You’ll be seeing this track on an upcoming mixtape, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check it out beforehand. Theophilus London has been bubbling underground for a minute with The Charming Mixtape and his own aptly titled blog, This Charming Blog. He’s garnered enough buzz that his debut single, “Humdrum Town” was released (free!) via Green Label Sound. This track was originally on The Charming Mixtape, but reworked for his upcoming album.
“Humdrum Town” caught my ear initially with London’s smooth flow, not to mention a great feature by Jesse Boykins III, and airy the electro beat. London excels with pumped up, bouncy, electronic-flavored beats (similar to Kid Cudi) and this backing just happens to be sampled from Futurecop!. I had been hoping that someone would take “NASA” and puts some lyrics on it. Heres to 2010 being a big year for both Theophilus London and Futurecop!.
