Philadelphia based producer Louis Futon has had quite an explosive 2014, but it looks like that won’t come anywhere close to what 2015 has in store. From a series of viral remixes and originals, alongside the announcement of becoming a solo artist, the New Year is shaping up quite nice.
To celebrate his first headlining tour kicking off in Australia this month – Louis Futon has reached out to aussie artist Just A Gent to remix his new single “Limelight” featuring H A Z E S. LF turns in one of his most impressive productions to date. He takes his future-bass-meets-trap stylings and takes things up a notch, with not a single dull moment from start to finish. The buildups are pleasant only to be met with unreal drops and breaks for a roller coaster of a ride. To honor the tour we have been allowed to launch this song with a limited FREE download for 72 hours. Then it will be stream only until it is officially released as part of a larger remix package set for an official release very soon.
Louis is also a gifting this track to his fans due to delay’s on the release of his much anticipated self-titled Louis Futon EP, which is now set for a January 28th release and will also be available as a FREE download. This will feature DRNUK, Sir Rock, Silk and More.
