Louis Futon - "Surreal (feat. RKCB)"
I've been dancing to this song all day in my apartment, and it's been glorious. It makes you move and thrive and express, exactly like great music should.
Hailing from Philadelphia, 23 year old Tyler Minford AKA Louis Futon has risen to prominence over the course of only two years. Heavily influenced by Hip-Hop, Louis Futon is the only producer ever to create official remixes for Logic, Mos Def, G-Eazy, Future, Wiz Khalifa, and more.
Regardless of his influences, Louis rebelliously declares, “Genres don’t define me.” From creating Trap and Future Bass rooted originals to changing the very DNA of some of Hip-Hop’s biggest hits, Louis is able to defy boundaries. Typically consisting of bright melodies and rhythmic electro-tones carried by Hip-Hop drums, Louis Futon has keenly carved out a genre that ironically adheres to none.
It just goes to show you that talent has not age, young or old, and magic can be made by coloring outside of the lines.
So today, with the groove in my bones, I choose Louis Futon's "Surreal (feat. RKCB)" as my, get that thing going, if not now - when, give it your best shot and laugh the entire time, song for a, the only failure is quitting, don't you dare give up, believing it to be true is half the battle Thursday.
