Philadelphia-based electronic producer Tyler Minford, best known as Louis Futon, has been defying genres while making beats with the likes of Bassnectar and remixing artists like Gallant and Marian Hill since 2013. Now, ODESZA's Foreign Family Collective has dropped Louis Futon's latest, a new track titled "Wasted On You" featuring vocals from ROZES.
"Wasted On You" is a chill, future bass track that combines ethereal synths with complex drum patterns. ROZES' angelic croon completes the dreamy effect. Listen below via the imprint's Soundcloud:
If ROZES' voice sounds familiar, it's because she has recently garnered a lot of attention with features on The Chainsmokers' hit "Roses" as well as Just a Gent's "Limelight." Her new EP, Burn Wild, also drops February 19.
About the collaboration, Minford said: "Liz [Rozes] and I found out we were both based in Philly, and a couple weeks later we were writing and recording the track in my basement. We instantly connected and came up with [this song]," Pop Dust reports.
The 23-year-old Minford just finished up a tour alongside ODESZA, so it's no surprise that the new track complements the Foreign Family aesthetic as previously showcased with releases from Rufus Du Sol, Jai Wolf and Kasbo among others.
Harrison Mills and Clayton Wright of ODESZA said about the release: "We've always been a fan of Louis Futon because of his incredible ability to excel in any genre he produces and this track is no exception. With vocals by the very talented ROZES, 'Wasted On You' is a euphoric anthem that fuses distorted synths, airy vocals and pulsing percussion work," This Song Is Sick reports.
Minford has a few tour dates coming up, including a stop at Okeechobee Music and Arts Festival in Florida. Check his official Facebook for an updated list of upcoming shows.
