Remix City: Theophilus London + Jeffrey Jerusalem, Is Tropical + Moonlight Matters

Remix City
Sifting through mountains of remix trash so you don’t have to, in an attempt to find the ones that contribute to their originals. Hitting the mega dance tip today, with some funkiness and animated .gif action.

Theophilus London

Theophilus London is breathing new life into his debut album, Timez Are Weird These Days. On April 24th, Theophilus hits the dance floor. He’ll be releasing the Bing sponsored Timez Are Weird These Nights, The Remixes. His songs have been remixed by some of the best DJ’s in the game, from Brodinski and Crookers to Fred Falke and Skream.

Last week, Theophilus London offered fans the first taste of what they can expect a lot more of on Timez Are Weird These Nights, including a stream of the Jeffrey Jerusalem remix of “Lighthouse.” For the visual pleasure of the internet, accompanying the stream of the track is an animated gif. Theophilus has teamed up with his friends at Mr-Gif.com to make animated gifs for each of the remixes featured on Timez Are Weird These Nights which will live on their own website, timezareweirdthesenights.tumblr.com
