Track of the Day: Theophilius London & Kevin Parker “Whiplash” (2019)

Technically, this excellent Theophilius London collaboration with Tame Impala guru Kevin Parker (collectively, Theo Impala) has been available in the less ethical corners of the internet for a few years now. “Whiplash” has long been a treasured deep cut for fans of both the New York rapper and Fremantle rocker, and now it seems the rest of the world will get to share the hyper-repetitive, party-minded joy as the track enjoys its official full release.

This isn’t the only time the two artists have teamed up, but it is easily the most accessible track from what is hopefully going to be a long-running partnership. Last year, fans got a taste of their cover of obscure jam “Only You”, originally by Nigerian musician Steve Monite, so the demand is certainly there for this unexpected project to continue bumping it. Maybe the world will see a Theo guest spot at Coachella, seeing as Tame Impala will headline this year.
