Gearing up for the release of his sophomore LP Couchsurfing, Louis Futon has delivered two new singles, “Re-Up” featuring Armani White alongside the instrumental b-side single, “Amoeba.”
Following his previous album single and syncopated jazz flute excursion “Ron Burgundy,” Futon showcases his wide range and versatility, leaving fans with sharp hip-hop instrumental fluidity. Birthed from a marijuana-inspired orchestration, the two new endeavors mix funky rhythm, guitar progressions, and subdued drum kicks. Recalling the tracks’ inception, Futon stated,
“The song started off with me sampling my guitar strings as a percussive instrument leading into an intricate drum pocket paired with a plucky bass…I wanted to make something that takes you through an epic journey.”
Keep an eye out for Couchsurfing to hit streaming platforms on November 5 and until then, stream his latest entities below.
DJ Snake has teamed up with Megan Thee Stallion, Ozuna, and BLACKPINK‘s LISA for a new single, “SG.” Replete with Miami Vice-inspired lighting and the flashy boats to boot, Ozuna opens the track with a bar-setting first verse. Neon silhouettes drape the Parisian hitmaker, Ozuna, Megan Thee Stallion, and LISA as they dance together, delivering bars over a tropical beat.
“SG” follows DJ Snake and Ozuna’s previous collaborations, “Loco Contigo” and “Taki Taki.” The music video for “SG” had been directed by Colin Tilley, who has worked with the likes of Justin Bieber, The Kid LAROI, and more.

This video, via Tonelab, takes an in-depth look at the Akai S900 / S950 sampler from 1986, a hybrid digital + analog sampler.
“I hope this helps to dispel some rumors and show you how to get around your S900 ..or perhaps, if you’re considering purchasing one, then I hope this helps you understand the kind of workflow you may be getting yourself into. Either way, here’s hoping you can turn confusion into creation with this walk-through of the amazing S900.”
