We fully expected Theophilus London to be the breakout star of SXSW 2009, and while we still think a lot of A&R's are sleeping on the Brooklyn sensation-in-waiting, he delivered in spades in Austin. Saturday saw him taking on the Fader Fort with Solange Knowles in tow to sing the chorus on "Sandcastles" and he followed it up with what was quite possibly his best performance to date at the Rolling Stone party at Peckerheads that evening. The old songs still slay and new ones are fresh to death, including his "Hum Drum" remix of Futurecop!, excerpted from This Charming Mixtape and available for download below.
