Chauffeur: Soles of Fire [download]
A familiar name- Theophilus London- has been traveling and making music lately along side some not so familiar ones. Mark Ronson created what he calls a “fictional supergroup” consisting of Theophilus, Sam Sparro, and Tommy and Victor from the Dap Kings. This is the first I am hearing of this group, but the music sounds very much of what you are used to hearing from Theophilus and I love it. I did manage to find this quote from Mark Ronson about the group:
I created the music with a Fictional supergroup we put together called Chauffeur. The band is Sam Sparro, Theophilus London, and Tommy and Victor from the Dap Kings. It’s cool—the sound is very ’80s and luxurious. It’s like what you would imagine a Gucci record to sound like.” - Marc Ronson
I am sure more will be revealed about the formation of this group, how it came about, and where it’s headed. If not, then I will ask! Until then, check out the track.
