Modern Day Rock n Roll?..Theophilus London

Brooklyn born rapper, Theophilus London is sure enough the epitome of Rock n Roll! The rapper, who is notorious for grabbing a woman out of his audience and dancing with her on stage, delivers a rock n roll performance to an Electronic or Hip Hop beat. His music defies any particular genre as he uses a range of samples (one of which, Whitney Houston’s- I will always love you) and tends to localize his set list depending on the country he is performing in, on a recent trip to London he performed a song over one of London-based DJ’s Crazy Cousins tracks, Lets just say, he knows how to get a crowd going!

Guns Don’t Kill People…Lazers Do is definitely worth a listen as Major Lazer are set to be big this summer, the duo have a global list of tour dates and are set to play at Notting Hill Carnival this August bank holiday.
