Last Friday, Brooklyn based electronica/hip-hop artist, Theophilus London performed at One Step Beyond, a monthly event held at the American Museum of Natural History. London kicked off his first U.S. performance of 2010 with a new tune titled, “Life Of A Lover”, from his upcoming mixtape, “I Want You”. With influences ranging from Michael Jackson to The Smiths, London’s newest offering boasts lyrics recounting recent life experiences as a fledgling artist on the brink of fame (“Hollywood has taken my heart”… “I’m going overseas, come fly with me”). London’s performance also included favorites from his previous project, “This Charming Mixtape” (“Humdrum Town”, “I Will Always Love You”, and “Crazy Cousins”) and ended with the title track from “I Want You”, a melodic throwback to the days of Marvin Gaye. London has posted a preview of “Life Of A Lover” (featuring Jesse Boykins) on his blog for Hypebeast, where the artist also shares his adventures from life on the road.
