Louis Futon Flips Notorious B.I.G.'s "Juicy" and Khalid's "Location"
Tyler Minford, who is better known by his stage name of Louis Futon, is a DJ and producer from Philadelphia. In the past few years, he has steadily carved out his own lane in the electronic dance music scene. And according to his Facebook bio:
"Simultaneously, Futon has set his sites beyond the confines of the electronic scene as his productions have reached into the worlds of hip-hop and r&b as well. Not only have his official remixes of artists like Anderson .Paak and Goldlink found major success, but collaborations with r&b leaning artists like RKCB have resulted in some of his most dynamic work yet."
And so far, Louis Futon has been staying very busy in 2017. In the past few months, he has released a beautiful original titled "Surreal" featuring RKCB, flips of Kendrick Lamar's "PRIDE" and Frank Ocean's "Solo," an absolutely stunning remix of THEY.'s "U RITE" and a bass friendly original titled "Hard AF."
And now today, he has shared with us another perfect example of why he is one of the most sought after producers in the electronic dance music scene. Earlier this week, Louis Futon took to Facebook to ask his fans as to which Notorious B.I.G. song should he flip this week. And after just a few days, he has already released his absolutely brilliant flip! Not only has he combined and flipped Notorious B.I.G.'s "Juicy" and Khalid's "Location," but he also recruited Ariel Shrum for some amazing trumpet work as well as Keiynan Lonsdale for the vocals. So check out the video of how the track was made and listen to the absolutely beautiful final production below, and grab the free download right here.
