Louis Futon and Medasin drop bouncy flip of Travis Scott’s ‘Wake Up’
Louis Futon‘s flips of fan-sourced track suggestions have been brightening days for a while – but when the producer teased a video of himself and Medasin working pure magic on Travis Scott‘s “Wake Up,” it was clear the take had the potential to be a standout. Future bass fans immediately clamored for a full release to smash the replay button on. Now the duo have granted that wish with a SoundCloud upload that’s pure sonic sunshine.
Futon and Medasin’s creative chemistry was on full display in the teaser video, with the soulful producers laying down layer after layer of live instrument grooves over the original’s vocals. Travis Scott’s auto-tuned verses and The Weeknd‘s NSFW choruses are transformed by the lush keyboard chords and slap bass, turning the sly R&B of the original into a playful upbeat bop that’d sound right at home on a Chance The Rapper mixtape. Amazingly, the two future bass stalwarts have yet to collaborate on an original – but if this lush rework is any indicator, the result would be nothing but certified heat.
