Penguin Prison Mixes Peñate (and new song!)

If it seems like each week there is a new piece of heat I'm featuring, courtesy of Penguin Prison, then you're darn sure right there is! Thankfully, I slept on last week's edition, so to combat my laziness, there are two new bits of beauteous beastliness in store today.


First up, Penguin Prison (aka Chris Glover) inhales a Jack Penate track and exhales a breath of fresh air that encompasses the original. Glover's spin on the London lad's So Near is a tidy lesson in minimalistic magic. With a sprinkling of "slow-downs" and sparkly undertones, the icy-cool NYCer makes us fall for a tune we loved in its original state. Now we lust even more for it.

In addition to finely crafting some of the best mixes that 2010 has seen thus far (see: Ellie Goulding's Starry Eyed remix featuring Theophilus London), Glover also continues to turn out a stellar dose of his own innovative material.

We're pumped to bestow Something I'm Not upon you. Firstly, because it's been on repeat here in Beastonia for the past week. And secondly, because it sounds in part, to be influenced by Mr. Mister's Broken Wings, a fact that I'm 100% ok with.

Theophilus London - Humdrum Town (new video!)

2009 was undoubtedly a "break through" year for Theophilus London, however, 2010 will (and mark my words) be the time that this magnificent performer crosses all boundaries with a speeding bullet.


In early oh-nine, London swarmed Beastonia with his This Charming Mixtape, a fitting follower to his first free release, Jam! An eclectic mix of hip-hop and soul, Theophilus' productions sparked a massive admiration from myself and many friends and colleagues. Late last year, London released a fullly mastered and beefed up version of Humdrum Town via Green Label, The original can be heard on This Charming Mixtape, but this new rendition features additional vocals from Jesse Boykins III while keeping the same passionate intonations as the much shorter original. Later today, the new video for the track will debut on MTV2, but you gotta love our wide world of interneticism and the fact that you can watch the fresh visuals right now.



I'm digging the casual, cool vibe of this video. The track never fails to send a chill up my spine at the :54 second mark when Theophilus exclaims "OH!" and the chorus kicks in. In addition to the extremely unique and totally rad music he keeps coming out with, he bought me gum on my birthday...so there's simply not a bad yarn I could ever spin about him.
