London - Flatline
It’s been a few months since we last heard from London (who’s actually from Oakland), but he’s been hard at work in the studio since laying down his last Booth-approved track She Put It Down, and he’s got the music to prove it. Written by DJBooth-featured artist Dominic and produced by production trio Anonymous (whose hidden identities are actually Tony Dixon, Eric Dawkins and Damon Thomas), London’s latest offering Flatline is one of the best male r&b songs I’ve heard in a minute. How’s that for some hype? While the lush production, complete with a subtle flatline sound effect, throbs in the background London’s vocals command the track, drawing us in with the story of a once vibrant love that’s now on the verge of death. If I didn’t know any better I could have sworn this was a Mario track, and that’s a serious compliment. Flatline is part of London’s now seriously delayed debut album Man of My Word, which still has no set release date.
