When Theophilus London tweeted “[NEW MUSIC] “LAST NIGHT” prod by Rustie”, my pulse raised to unhealthy levels, my heart started beating like the proverbial drum, my pupils dilated and my life briefly flashed before my eyes. I then realized that, rather than having collaborated with Rustie, Theophilus London had instead taken on one of the super-talented producer’s beats instead. This is no mean feat as Rustie makes some of the most full-on, dense, multi-layered bass music around, but as is his wont, Mr London cruises effortlessly over the beat, keeping up with the hyperactive energy of the original track (“After Light”) but managing to make the song entirely his own.
