Earlier this year, EDM cool kid duo Robby Hauldren and Freddy Kennett graced the stage at the Winter X Games in Aspen. Performing since high school under their Louis the Child moniker, the pair have become representative of a generation of producers coming up in the post-Flume future bass world. 

Now, they've made history as the first dance artist to pen an official theme song for the X Games. The track, titled "Big Time," was released just weeks before the traveling extreme sports event graces Minneapolis in August. 

“Louis The Child’s concert in Aspen brought a fun, high-energy performance that was a great match for X Games fans,” said the company's president, Tim Reed. “We’re excited to be able to connect that same energy to our events, content and brand through the new X Games anthem.”

The track is characteristic of duo, featuring the group's classic dance-driven production style and future bass sound. Samples from iconic X Games moments are layered against funky synths for a high-energy feel.
