While the stereotype goes that France remain the untimely key holders to fine Electro House, Norwich’s Brett Ewels has always had other ideas. Under his potent Louis La Roche moniker, the Kitsuné approved club monger takes on the sturdy studio work of New York’s The Knocks and Parisian favourite Fred Falke.
Amid the familiar heavyset edge and strong melodic ornamentation that the imprint have become renowned for, Ewels successfully raises the bar on an already potent club grinder with a strong take on the handy work of two of Electro’s most sought after artists. Despite the strong French hallmarks that pervade this modern gem, Louis La Roche is a strong indicator that amid the 21st century swell in club culture, the positive universal footsteps with the industry have not been limited to European Progressive House.
Released July 23.
