Medasin and Louis Futon dropped a teaser video showing the smooth groove kings going certified bonkers on a flip of Travis Scott‘s “Wake Up.” The video shows the duo jamming on an a cappella of The Weeknd‘s featured vocals, after asking fans for song suggestions for an impromptu rework. The two producers start with the original’s raw vocals, and put it through a multi-step soul machine. The video shows Medasin laying down effortless keyboard stylings, while Louis Futon taps out drums on the fly and records a sliding bass guitar line. The creative chemistry in the studio is palpable, and whatever difficulties Medasin may have playing to thousands on tour clearly disappear when he’s just jamming and creating.
Oddly enough this is the first we’ve seen of the the two artists collaborating, despite dominating the same vein of electronic music. The duo needlessly asked if they should release the full version (the answer is undoubtedly hell yes), but fans can bask in the glory of Medasin’s dance moves while they wait for the rework to drop in full.
