“I produce what makes me happy, which is why GENRES DON’T DEFINE ME.”
Philedelphia native Tyler Minford, better known as Louis Futon, began making music in 2013. It’s only been two years, and the young artist has already made a name for himself.
He has accumulated forty-three thousand likes on Facebook, and he has almost sixty thousand followers on SoundCloud. His remix of Mos Def’s “Ms. Fat Booty” has well over one million plays. All of his other tracks have at least one hundred thousand plays, but most far exceed that.
Minford has already put out an EP this year, titled Louis Futon EP. It features four original tracks, and three remixes, including one by Kill Paris.
The EP is available for free download on the Louis Futon website, along with a lot of other tracks. He makes a point to make all of his music free. On his Facebook page, he explains, “While there may be no free hand-outs in life, I strive to give away my music for free, so please enjoy and share.”
