Mixtape: Theophilus London – Rose Island Vol. I

Download the new mixtape Rose Island Vol. I from Theophilus London

Theophilus London is no stranger to the mix tape. After a busy couple years of putting out official releases – Lovers Holiday EP in Feb 2011, Timez Are Weird These Days in July 2011 and Timez Are Weird These Nights in April of this year – TL returns to the internets with his highly anticipated mixtape Rose Island Vol. 1, the follow up to 2010’s I Want You mixtape. Your soundtrack to summer has arrived.

Download: Theophilus London – Rose Island Vol. 1

Theophilus recorded most of Rose Island during Christmas in his NYC studio. In typical TL fashion, there’s something for everyone on Rose Island Vol. 1 which is filled with hip hop bangers, electronic club tracks, sing along anthems and, of course, a couple slow jams. Rose Island is an imaginary place in TL’s head where he goes when he needs to escape reality and time. Some of the mix tape highlights include A$AP Rocky, Big Boi, upcoming Producer Lunice, and many more. He also Covers Pharrell Willams “Take it off’ and reworks Wang Chung’s classic “Dance Hall Days.”

Always striving for the full experience, Theophilus has linked with luxury shoe company on the rise Del Toro to design the official Rose Island Slippers. Now fans can listen in the comfort of a custom TL slipper, the same slippers he rocked while creating Rose Island Vol 1. The Rose Island Slipper are limited in quantity and available for pre-order now at http://lvrs.tl/velvetrose.html

Theophilus London is currently out touring the world and has already begun work on the follow to Timez Are Weird These Days as well as his Rose Island Vol. 2 mix tape.

Outasight – “Figure 8”

 

Click image to listen to "Figure 8"

New York native Outasight follows up his acclaimed Never Say Never mixtape with a 5-song EP, Figure 8, slated for an April 26th release. Beginning Monday, April 25th, Outasight will be offering up the EP as a free download in exchange for an email address on his web properties and on April 26th, the EP will be for sale on at iTunes, Amazon and all digital retailers. Figure 8 is a pop-tinged achievement of rap and R&B, vividly complimented by Outasight’s observant lyrics and laidback harmonies.

The instrumental element of the EP reflects an appreciation for detailed production, densely layered with organs, guitars and percussion combined with the synths and heavy, mid-tempo drums that anchor the sound in hip-hop. The sonically rich canvases, supplied by Cook Classics, The Knox, and Matt Max and polished to a sheen by mixing engineer Chris Carmouche (Big Boi, Outkast), are the perfect
backdrop for Outasight’s casually contemplative ruminations on the widely relatable, alternately rapped and sung.

Listen to “Figure 8”

Tracklist:

1. So What (Produced by Cook Classics)
2. Figure 8 (Produced by Matt Max)
3. Maybe Next Time (Produced by Cook Classics)
4. Life or Something Like It (Produced by The Knocks)
5. Everyday (Produced by Cook Classics)
