Theophilus London ft. Jesse Boykins III - Oohs & Ahhs

DJBooth_logo2x

On this new, unreleased cut, Theophilus London addresses the one activity that elicits more Oohs & Ahhs than a Fourth of July fireworks show—if you haven't already guessed, I'm talking about lovemaking. This record is far from your average sex jam, though; for one thing, the Brooklyn emcee sounds like he's actually getting it on while rapping. Producer Leatherette's smoldering blend of ambient synths and sampled moans, along with frequent collaborator Jesse Boykins III's steamy “take you for a ride” hook combine with London's breathless vocals to create a sexy but weirdly voyeuristic listening experience. In any case, the creativity all three bring to Oohs & Ahhs is undeniable, and there's no reason the cut shouldn't continue the streak of positive reviews London started with Cold Pillow (also featuring Boykins). If you like what you hear, check back with us next month for the up-and-comer's contribution to our DJBooth.net Freestyle Series.
