Brooklyn rapper Theophilus London and has teamed up with Black and Gold singer Sam Sparro and Mark Ronson on a new side-project, recording under the alias of Chauffeur.
The supergroup have been laying down tracks in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and the latest edition to their repertoire is a cover of Glamorous Life by Sheila E.
Before Christmas, they premiered their first offering online, an original song called Soles of Fire, in which Theophilus said they are singing about "women and the west-side highway, and the beach".
He seems to be a man of many collaborations, claiming studio time with the likes of Damon Albarn, Solange Knowles and Jack Penate.
Theopilus also hopes to work with BBC Sound of 2010 winner Ellie Goulding this year.
This is all while he's been working on a new solo record called Days Before You Left, which should be done by the Summer.
'We just clicked'
As for how he met Mr Ronson, Theophilus said: "I met Mark a year ago. He asked me to come down to his radio show in New York city and we just clicked. He invited me to his house and we just listened to music for like six hours.
"We became friends and started making music together. His new stuff is sounding really amazing, and it’s just been a great, creative friendship."
He told us what it was like being in the studio with the producer, who's worked with the likes of Amy Winehouse, Kaiser Chiefs and Lily Allen.
"He works a lot in his mind," he explained. "He doesn’t really say much but you can tell what he did. He knows when he hears something off and right.
"It’s just a click, it’s a mutual thing in the studio with Mark. He’s easy to work with and he knows what he wants to hear, so it was great."
As for seeing Chauffeur live, he said they've played two shows in New York and are planning a gig in London, late March or April.
According to him, Ronson's new record, The Business - which we know features Santigold, Cathy Dennis, rapper Pill and Mike Snow - is coming on nicely.
"We’ve just been working on tonnes of music and I definitely think I’m gonna be on his next record," he revealed. "His record’s sounding really good.
"There’s so many amazing artists and people contributing to it and Mark just re-shaping a new sound. It was great to be in that atmosphere and see him at work."
