LOUIS LA ROCHE
His Top Tracks: Love, Dream Come True, Handsup!
Sounds: British beats infused with French house
Catch Him If You Can: At Wanderlust in Paris, Proud Camden in London, Sound Night Club in Los Angeles
What were you doing when you were 17? Brett Ewels, a.k.a. Louis La Roche, went global early on with his Michael Jackson-sampled debut track, Love. The track was so strong it was falsely credited to Thomas Bangalter—who is half of the iconic duo Daft Punk. The error corrected, Louis gained a huge following, and has been mixing around the world ever since. He opened for Kylie Minogue during two dates of her Kiss Me Once tour, in 2014. Now at age 25, La Roche is at the top of his game: he continues to keep our feet moving with his awesome French house beats.
