Philadelphia producer Louis Futon has been on a tear so far this year, reworking the songs of big name artists like Odesza, Future, and G-Eazy. The 23-year-old released another solid remix today, this time putting his own twist on the dreamy Rüfüs Du Sol track “You were Right.” The difference between the two versions is instantly apparent--Futon begins with a quick blast of percussion followed by a long, half-speed stretch of the original bridge, building up at a crawling speed. The pace quickens, and the song evolves taking on a house style bass pattern before the first crushing delay-driven future bass drop. Here the track really hits its stride, exposing the artist’s complex strategy in building upon the original song’s rainy mood to create a more vivid sound space. The drop shatters this creation with effective, reverberating bass, accented by robotic synth. The lyrics sound so fluid around Futon’s delays and high pass filters, each doing their part in bringing out the emotion lying within each word. This track is another example of Louis Futon’s creative ability in altering tracks and creating entirely new productions around his unique vision. Recently announcing his own headlining tour, "Futon takes America," the star power of Louis Futon is spreading like wildfire, and with good reason based on tracks like these.
