Childish Gambino – Telegraph Ave. (Louis Futon & Louis The Child Flip)
One of the things I look forward to content-wise in music are Louis Futon flip videos. This week’s was a special flip because it was with Louis The Child, on their tourbus. Louis The Child and Louis Futon are currently on their Last To Leave Tour, which is sadly coming to an end this Saturday. The 33 date North American tour featured Joey Purp, Lauv, Louis Futon, Prince Fox, Ashe, Party Pupils, Point Point, and Win & Woo. Louis Futon joined the duo on the last leg of their tour.
Every month or so, Louis Futon flips a song that’s been recently inspiring him. A flip is like a remix without all the stems. On a remix, you get sent each track. A flip, you just use the complete music file and mess around with that.
During the Philadelphia-based artist’s flip videos, he outlines each part of the production process in a quick 2 minute tutorial. This makes the production process digestible to the masses, because he deletes the trial and error aspects that are probably pretty boring to watch.
His latest flip is of Childish Gambino’s Telegraph Ave. You can even hear Louis The Child’s influence on the main melody during the chorus. I’ve also posted the flip video below, so you can decide for yourself if you think they’re entertaining or not. I personally look forward to each one, since I enjoy making music myself.
