Gallant – (Louis Futon Remix) : Must Hear Remix


LA based R&B singer Gallant is having a breakout year with his streak of releases on the Mind Of A Genius label alongside ZHU. One of the recent tracks, "Weight In Gold," looks to be Gallant's strongest song to date and has already started seeing remixes pop up, like Ta-Ku's official take on the song, which we featured a couple weeks ago.

Well, remixer extraordinaire, Louis Futon, who we've featured extensively through remixes of G-Eazy, ODESZA, Mos Def, Wiz Khalifa and much more, has stepped up to the plate and given this R&B ballad a whole new life. While keeping things soulful and leaving the vocals intact, this remix adds drums leading to a quavering bass line, and minimal glitchy vocals & synths. The remix does the incredible original justice, as he adds a uniquely seductive twists to perfectly compliment the belted-out vocals. Following up multiple festival stops including Coachella, Counterpoint, and Paradiso, Louis is prepping for his first headline tour with the first stop in Denver this month. Gallant is also set to support Sufjan Stevens on his tour later this year. See dates below. Enjoy!
