Louis Futon Enlists Close Collaborators Armani White, BXRBER, and Bellah for J. Cole’s “Kevin’s Heart” Cover
What started out as one of his dexterous beat flips via a slew of Instagram stories, compiled into a Facebook post, has evolved into one of the Louis Futon’s most exhilarating and adventurous efforts to date. Drawing inspiration from one of the dopest hip-hop albums of the year, the LA-based DJ and producer concocted a bewitching cover of J. Cole’s “Kevin’s Heart.” Stepping away from his customary style of electronic music, Louis Futon has seriously flexed his creative muscles with this one. Dripping with future bass overtones but deeply rooted in sultry R&B. This Friday, June 15, Louis Futon will be lighting up The Bowery Ballroom. Grab your tickets here.
What makes this release even more outstanding is the cast of collaborators that Futon enlists. With the help of Armani White, BXRBER, and Bellah, the four stoop-kids showcase a stunning sense of artistic co-existence, creating a space where three seemingly opposing genres collide with an impeccable swagger. The cover completely reimagines an already standout track in a masterful way. With his three dynamic collaborators Futon creates a truly holistic sound that discerning listeners will appreciate. Currently on tour and with the release of his latest hit single “Fall On Me,” Louis Futon is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down.
Days after J Cole dropped his new project, KOD, I was listening to “Kevin’s Heart” and had a really cool idea to flip it so I called up Bellah, BXRBER, and Armani White The whole track came together in a couple of hours, and I loved it so much I decided to take out J. Cole’s parts all together and make it a cover. – Louis Futon
