Artist-designer Theophilus London is prepping the release of his Lovers Holiday II EP via digital retailers on February 12. The project will be our first introduction to London’s production side. Speaking with Style, Theophilus explains the direction of his upcoming VIBES! album, Kanye West playing a key role, and drawing from 80s group Martin Dupont on “Take a Look.”

In late November, Kanye sent me a folder of music to inspire me, with a bunch of really obscure oldies. [“Take a Look”] is an interpretation of another song that came out in, like, 1981, by a group called Martin Dupont from Marseille, France. I was working on my new album, and Kanye said, ‘You should cover or reinterpret some very obscure songs, with their melodies and with your bass lines.
