Louis The Child (real names Robby Hauldren and Frederic Kennett) swapped their signature future bass-infused sound for a trap-inspired style on their latest remix of Skrillex, Boys Noize, and Ty Dolla $ign's hit summer anthem “Midnight Hour.”
As any good remix does, Louis The Child’s remix keeps the spirit of the original alive while adding enough variation to breathe new life into the track. Ty Dolla $ign's vocals still lead, and the verses remain atmospheric. Gone is the tech house-inspired drop of the original, though. Instead, Louis The Child incorporate woodwinds and trap beats for a feelgood, high-energy drop typical of the duo’s playful creative style yet a far cry from the future bass tracks for which fans have come to know them.
The Chicago duo have been playing their “Midnight Hour” remix at live shows recently, but finally released it today in anticipation of their upcoming Here For Now tour. The fall tour kicks off in Atlanta this weekend with select shows in cities across the U.S. leading up to the finale in St. Louis on December 7th. Joining Louis The Child as supporting acts are LÉON, What So Not, Duckwrth, The Cool Kids, KAMI, Sebastian Paul, John The Blind, and ilo ilo.
