Tag Archives: Erlend Oye

From the early to mid-2000s, if you saw a track that had the words “featuring Erlend Øye” as part of the track name, you knew you were in for a treat.  Erlend Øye‘s silky smooth voice made him a favorite amongst many artists to collaborate with, including Röyksopp, Phonique, Feist & DJ Hell.  On top of being the go-to guy for an artist in need of a top tier vocal collab, he also had his hands in several personal projects including Kings of Convenience & The Whitest Boy Alive.  Erlend Øye has been on sabbatical over the last few years and since then, one man has proven to be a worthy successor as The Man With The Golden Touch: Theophilus London.

In baseball, he’s a five-tool player.  In basketball he’s a triple double threat.  No matter what genre he’s lyrically slicin’ & dicin’, Theophilus London gets the job done in the coolest way possible.   He’ll take a dreamwave track from Futurecop! & make it dreamier.  He’ll take an electro-sex song from Jimmy Edgar & make it electric.  And just when you think a tune by Ellie Goulding can’t get any better, he makes a pop tune POP.

His new single, “Last Name London”, is the first track off his highly anticipated debut LP “Timez Are Weird These Days” (Out July 19th).  Ungh.
