Watch Louis Futon & Party Pupils Create A Beat Using Samples Created At IKEA


It's been over a year since Louis Futon started posting videos for his "beat challenge" series, and so far we can confidently say it's been wildly successful. He's churned up some of his best beats through these fun videos, and he's just posted another. 

This time, Louis Futon has teamed up with one of the members of Party Pupils to make a beat. The challenge? They both have to use sampled sounds that they got from IKEA. The pair went around the Swedish furniture store and made chords out of a barcode scanner, drums out of banging random things together, and another synth from blowing into a vase. They then fleshed the rest of the track out with some live instrumentation and singing. 

The end result is a beautifully funky track that will make you want to jump up out of your seat and dance. The unnamed track hasn't been uploaded in full yet, but based on his last beat challenge videos, it should be up soon. For now, take a look at the video of Louis Futon, Party Pupils, and friends creating this awesome bit of music below. Enjoy!

Louis Futon Delivers Amazing New Flip Of Childish Gambino's "Summertime Magic"

Ahh another new Louis Futon flip is here. The TSIS favorite has been a wizard with his beat challenges and this time around has taken on Childish Gambino’s new song “Summertime Magic” putting his own spin on the uplifting song. We just recently heard Louis flip J. Cole’s “Kevin’s Heart” along with his latest original track “Fall On Me” as one of his most soulful to take.

Here Louis utilizes the original acapella while building new production from the ground up. He blends the vocals with new drums, a chill sample, some new added bells to give it that summer vibe, and a drop with uplifting, bouncing synths. As with his past beat challenges, Louis Futon has also been kind enough to share the video showing how he made the song. Happy birthday Louis! Enjoy!

Louis Futon just dropped some heat on us. The talented artist has been on a roll with his beat flips over the past year and just keeps them coming. A little over a month ago he shared a video flipping J. Cole’s album song “Kevin’s Heart” and now he’s delivered fans the full cover version featuring Armani White, BXRBER and Bellah, and it’s sounding amazing. 

This is following up Louis’ recent single “Fall On Me” that’s his most soulful song to date and just keeps the momentum going. This cover takes elements of the original while making it his own entirely. He introduces his own melodies and recreates the production from the ground up with BXRBER and Bellah bring the soul on their smooth features and Armani White ties everything together with a fire verse.
