KNITTING FACTORY PRESENTS
Louis The Child: Last to Leave Tour
Louis The Child consists of Freddy Kennett and Robby Hauldren, who have taken the music industry by storm in recent years. With over 50 million Spotify streams, LTC provides their fans electronic bliss through stadium-ready anthems such as "It's Strange," featuring K. Flay and their Icona Pop collaboration “Weekend.” On the most recent release, "Love Is Alive" (ft. Elohim), their versatility and emotional range shines through brightest, showcasing an understated tenderness, which Billboard praised as "soft and soothing."
Citing influences ranging from James Blake to Robert Glasper, Hauldren & Kennett blend musical complexity and sonic experimentation in an individual strand of future bass that defies pop formulas, catching the ear of outlets such as Chicago Tribune, Pitchfork, BBC, Rolling Stone, and Billboard.
Since supporting the likes of Madeon, Porter Robinson, and The Chainsmokers, Louis The Child has embarked on 2 headline tours totaling 37 sell outs and over 25,000 tickets sold in less than a year. Mixmag's #1 artist taking American dance music to the next level has quickly risen to headliner status. Currently in the midst of a rigorous touring schedule, Louis the Child is fully prepared to bring smiles to the crowds of people across the globe.
Philadelphia producer Tyler Minford, aka Louis Futon, has steadily carved out his own lane in the electronic music scene over the past two years. In that short time, his remixes and singles have garnered over fifty million streams online, with his biggest single to date “Wasted On You” being released through ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective.
Simultaneously, Futon has set his sites beyond the confines of the electronic scene as his productions have reached into the worlds of hip-hop and r&b as well. Not only have his official remixes of artists like Anderson .Paak and Goldlink found major success, but collaborations with r&b leaning artists like RKCB have resulted in some of his most dynamic work yet.
His array of talents is already paying dividends as he’s not only toured with ODESZA in the past year, but in 2017, has secured a mostly sold out headlining spring tour alongside appearances at festival staples like Splash House, CRSSD and Okeechobee. Those prime spots are no surprise as Futon has captivated fans with a unique live show that features the multi-instrumentalist playing out originals and remixes alike.
With so much accomplished and in store, the forthcoming year is undoubtedly slated to be Futon’s most successful yet.
