A few months back we played at the excellent Modular Festival in Rotterdam. Philou Louzolo was on warm up, we knew none of the tracks but loved them all and immediately got in touch asking for him to contribute to our podcast series. We can’t wait to see how he develops as an artist and look forward to hear more of his productions. Get to know!
“I’ve been touring and traveling a lot, so I’m actually looking forward to recover and make music again. I started this career three years ago, everything went so fast and this was my first hectic festival season, so it was a bit overwhelming to be honest. I’m looking forward to next year, but I will be more selective about my gigs and stop saying yes to everyone.
At a friend’s place with mostly CDJ’s and a few records and a weird, old two channeled mixer (don’t even remember it’s name).
I prepared a very diverse playlist first, but I started free-styling halfway, this is something that a lot during my sets.
I rarely talk about genres, all music I play has something indescribable in common.”
“Trying to get some old productions out (the last track in this mix is one of them.) And create new stuff and also prepare for next year. I will also try to be more active on speaking out against the lack of cultural diversity and cultural appropriation in our industry, whatever the consequences might be for my career, if the scene can’t handle controversial topics, the scene is not for me. I feel blessed to be in a position where I can travel so freely and share special moments with people all over the world, but from my point of view, a lot needs to change in order for me to enjoy my work to the fullest and be able to reach my full potential as an artist.”
