With the exception of remix albums, Louis The Child had yet to release any extended content — well, that's until late last week.
The DJ duo had previously blessed us with a number of noteworthy originals and remixes since the two Chicago boys began to blow up about two short years ago. However, Robby and Freddy's recently released “Love Is Alive” EP was the first extended play added to their young and growing discography.
Louis The Child picks the perfect track to launch the EP with “Go” featuring familiar vocals over an energetic and happy production. It's an inviting instrumental that helps get the EP get going and builds up beautifully for “Fire” — one of three past releases to be featured on the “Love Is Alive” EP; the other singles being “Phone Died” and then the title track, which closes the EP.
Regarding the remainder of Louis The Child's debut EP, “Slow Down Love” adds fuel to their lovely fire with vocals by Chelsea Cutler that keep “Love Is Alive” burning. Though a strong electronic number, “Slow Down Love” was not my personal favorite out of the EP's entirety.
Following “Phone Died,” a chill lo-fi hip-hop track stole my heart: “World On Fire” featuring Ashes. It's an elegant addition that, though not nearly as upbeat as other tracks, takes a nice step back before the title track plays out to bring the EP home. With a pure and quite awfully pretty piano melody to back the track, “World Is Fire” had to be the easy favorite for me…
But listen to Louis The Child's debut “Love Is Alive” EP below and let us at EDM Sauce know what you think! Louis The Child released a well-rounded debut (to say the least) and we're excited to hear future releases from Robby and Freddy as we watch their careers continue.
