Louis Futon Adds a Dreamy Twist to ZHU’s ‘Generationwhy’

23 year old Tyler Mindford from Philly, also known as Louis Futon, has made quite the breakthrough over the past couple years creating beautiful music that will sail you off to the clouds when you press play. He’s remixed names like Odesza, Mos Def, Wiz Khalifa, Childish Gambino, Rufus Du Sol, and more, and has produced some lovely tracks of his own as well.

Louis Futon is a part of the genre-less bandwagon and does a great job displaying the importance being much less about how to classify the production, and instead encourages you to listen and focus on the fact that it’s simply just good music. Is it trap? Is it future bass? Is it ambient? Technically there might be elements of all of that, mixed in with a little bit of indie rock in his sound.

His latest release is an impressive remix of ZHU‘s ‘Generationwhy.’ Futon showcases his creativity in this remix as he flips the track completely from it’s original with a gentle elegance. Although ZHU’s original is also remarkable, Louis Futon adds a whole different element to the track with a future/funky feel.

Catch Louis Futon amongst other artists like Galantis, Louis The Child, Nero and many more this weekend at Global Dance Festival, and maybe you’ll get to hear his new remix live.
