TSIS favorite Louis Futon is undoubtedly a production wizard. For those of you unfamiliar, he has a running “beat challenge” series where he asks fans to recommend songs for him to flip, and he recreates them entirely. His most recent flips include J. Cole’s “Kevin’s Heart,” SZA’s “Love Galore” and the Stranger Things soundtrack.
This time around he’s joined by his “best friend” and fellow TSIS favorite Medasin, who is also an insanely talented producer as the two form a super duo. For their collaborative beat challenge, the two artists have taken on Travis Scott & The Weeknd’s recent collab “Wake Up” off Astroworld.
They take us through the process step by step from making an acapella, add keys, drums, bass guitar and some signature bouncing Medasin flavor. They maintain The Weeknd’s catchy falsetto vocals while recreating the instrumental from the ground up and we’re loving it. Both Louis Futon and Medasin add their own touch to the flip with some amazing chemistry that has us hoping they work together again down the road. See the video below and stay tuned for hopefully a full upload of the collab. Enjoy!
