Since Louis The Child first captured the attention of the electronic scene with K.Flay featured single “It’s Strange,” the duo have continued to traverse new sound territory while perfecting their signature, effervescent production stylings. Now, the Chicago producers have joined forces with singer/songwriter, Wrabel, for the latest evolution of their beloved future-bass craft with new single, “Too Close.” Wrabel previously collaborated with Louis The Child to write “Better Not (featuring Wafia)” and has gathered credits on both pop and electronic peers, including Kesha, Galantis, Kygo, P!nk, Afrojack, and more.

Laden with bright brass tinges and punchy lines, “Too Close” balances soft ambiance with upbeat melodies, meticulously focusing on accentuating mid-to-high-range sonic elements. Playing with voice-pitching and layering vocal harmonies, Louis The Child inject rosy energy into a carefree, heart-racing track with their manipulation of bouncy synths, airy chimes, and pop-leaning structures. Careful isolations and diverse soundscapes carry and showcase Wrabel’s smooth vocals throughout. On “Too Close,” Louis The Child once again reaffirm their ability to deliver infectiously feel-good spirits.

In just six years, Robby Hauldren and Frederic Kennet went from total strangers at a Madeon concert to one of the most ubiquitous acts in the current dance music landscape. Today, the duo better known as Louis The Child, is found applying a coat of their melodic, bass dripping sheen to the infamous X Games, producing the sporting event’s official 2019 anthem, “Big Time.”

Rolling hi-hats and the duo’s beloved future bass licks make
the perfect arena to highlight samples from iconic X Games moments throughout
the years. Further, Louis The Child’s ability to balance upbeat energy with
sub-centric beats makes them the perfect act for the X Games to expand their
brand while still satisfying the masses.

“We’re absolutely stoked to release ‘Big Time’ noted Louis The Child about the track. “It’s a song we’ve been playing out in our shows for a while and we’re excited to have it be the official X Games theme song moving forward.”

The X Games return to Minneapolis from August 1 – 4, with musical performances from Diplo, Wu-Tang Clan, Incubus, and SWMRS at The Armory accompanying the high-octane sporting event.

Eight-time Grammy Award-nominated band Death Cab for Cutie have been releasing alternative hits for over fifteen years, and their longevity is a continued testament to the quality of their music in an over-saturated music marketplace. Now, electronic duo Louis the Child has teamed up with the band to remix “I Dreamt We Spoke Again,” and the pair continue to prove their adaptability as they branch out to a new genre and find a way to make it their own in the remix.

Chilling future bass layers intertwine with the original’s crisp vocals and instrumentals, making Louis the Child’s rendition a perfect select for repeated listening this summer. The duo cuts up the beat to add versatile sonic fillers, adding a new dynamic to the track without totally altering the soul of the original release.

Death Cab for Cutie commented on Louis The Child’s rework in an official release, explaining,

“‘I Dreamt We Spoke Again’ began as a very muted, low-key ghost of a song, but ended up being one of the more dance-oriented tracks that this band has attempted – though in a very throwback, nostalgic sense. So, it was a treat to turn it over to Louis the Child and have them apply all of the bells and whistles of 2019 dance music production to it.”

Louis the Child’s remix of “I Dreamt We Spoke Again” is out now via Atlantic Records.

Ultra Music Festival has grown to be one of the largest electronic music festivals in the world, making the city of Miami a temporary home for the thousands of individuals that come flocking into the city. After the first day of the festival at their brand new location on the Virginia Key, festival-goers weren’t the only ones that had a lot to say about their experience thus far. Upon the festival’s main stage was KFC’s mascot, Colonel Sanders, who held a five-minute slot amidst the afternoon. Though the festival was characterized by a number of memorable artist sets, the promotional tactic was criticized by a number of artists, including Louis The Child and Alison Wonderland.

Speaking on the issue, the artists note that Ultra holds one of the most impactful platforms in the electronic music scene, and their stages should support hardworking, talented artists that work for the opportunity to perform at these events. Between the chaotic transportation issues at the end of night one that left thousands of attendees to make the hour long trek to the mainland, it looks like Ultra is just getting started.
