Dance with Louis Futon at Tomorrow’s Late Show at Mercury Lounge

April 14th, 2017

“Don’t let their punny name (and boyish good looks) fool you, the Philly-based duo of Tyler Minford and Logan Zoghby make seriously good music—a refreshingly funky blend of R&B, jazz and more electronically inclined elements,” raved Interview a couple of years back. Minford has since gone solo, creating official remixes for big names like Mos Def, Logic, G-Eazy, Future and Wiz Khalifa. But he insists that “genres don’t define me.” An eponymous EP (stream it below) arrived two years ago. “Philly producer Louis Futon has dropped off his self-titled EP, and simply put—it’s quite good,” said Hypebeast. “The electronic producer delivers on four original and undeniably entertaining tracks, as three remixes also join the party.” He’s been working on new material, and you can see him at the late show tomorrow at Mercury Lounge. NYC singer-songwriter Sam Setton opens.

Louis Futon Brings the Party to Rough Trade NYC on Saturday Night

April 29th, 2016

Heavily influenced by hip-hop (plus jazz and R&B)—and straight out of Philly—producer Louis Futon’s been bringing his electronic beats across the country for only a couple of years, but he’s already done official remixes of big names like Wiz Khalifa, Future and Kanye West and Logic. Somehow using melodies, electronic tones and drums, he’s been able to make music that doesn’t easily fit into one genre. In fact, he’s got “Genres don’t define me” on his Facebook page. Last year he released a seven-track eponymous EP (stream it below), impressing blogs across the land. Earmilk succinctly put it: “Louis Futon destroys it with self-titled EP.” And fresh off dates with Big Gigantic, he brings his dance party to Rough Trade NYC tomorrow night. Join the party.
