How Louis the Child Formed

Robert “Robby” David Hauldren, one-half of Louis the Child, was born on September 7, 1996. Robby dropped out of college after attending USC for one year with one goal in mind – becoming a professional musician. After leaving college, Robby performed as Haul Pass, DJing extensively and making his own mashups of pre-existing songs.  Frederic Judson Kennett, the other half of Louis the Child, was born on October 19, 1997, and he started making music as Fatboy while still in high school. Frederic and Robby attended the same high school in Illinois, but they didn’t meet in the hallways or in class. Instead, the pair became friends in the crowd while seeing the renowned DJ Madeon perform in 2012. After bonding over their shared love for music, Robby and Frederic joined forces to become Louis the Child, and they released their first hit, “It’s Strange,” before starting college. That song was later featured on the soundtrack to FIFA 16, and it even got a shoutout from Taylor Swift herself.

The Duo’s Debut Album 

Produced by the members of Louis the Child alongside Jon Bellion, Billboard, and Jason Evigan, Here for Now is the duo’s first full-length studio album. Released via Interscope Records, the album made it to number 6 on the US Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart. It also reached number 8 on the US Heatseekers Albums chart, the highest chart positions the duo has scored to date. Here for Now features a host of guest musicians, including Mark Foster from Foster the People, Chelsea Cutler, MNDR, Eric J, Naomi Wild, Chase Lawrence, and many more. Several of the tracks on the album were co-written by producing/songwriting superstar Jon Bellion, and Bellion’s influence can be heard all over songs like the hit “Little Things.”

Singles From Louis the Child

Louis the Child’s first single came out in 2015 and hit number 38 on the US Dance chart. That track, “It’s Strange,” features K. Flay on vocals, and it was the only song that the duo put out that year. The release of “It’s Strange” followed Dimensions, Louis the Child’s 2013 EP, and it became their first charting song ever. Throughout the latter half of the 2010s, Louis the Child continued to put out charting singles, eventually scoring their first Platinum hit in 2018 with “Better Not” featuring Wafia. That song had their highest chart position yet, coming in at number 12 on the US Dance rankings. Other charting tracks from the duo’s work in the late 2010s include “Last to Leave” featuring Caroline Ailin, “Slow Down Love” featuring Chelsea Cutler, and “Too Close” featuring Wrabel.  The duo’s debut album, Here for Now, features numerous charting singles, including “Every Color,” featuring Foster the People, and “Little Things,” featuring Quinn XCII and Chelsea Cutler. Their 2021 Euphoria EP was also preceded by the release of several high-profile singles, including “Hate U Cuz I Don’t,” featuring Bea Miller, and “Keep On Moving,” featuring Nez and Theophilus London. 

Remixes by Louis the Child 

Louis the Child released a string of successful authorized remixes throughout 2014, and they continued to do so for the next several years. Their first remix was of the track “Mastodon” by Milk N Cookies featuring Alina Ray, followed by “Hearts” by Dan Black featuring Kelis. Before 2014 was over, they’d remixed songs by Bombay Bicycle Club, Magic Man, Zella Day, Oh Wonder, Moxie Raia, and more.  In 2015, the duo remixed “Discipline” by Club Cheval, “Never Sleep Alone” by Kaskade featuring Comrie, and “Broken Record” by SoySauce featuring Joni Fatora. They started the following year with a remix of Ty Dolla Sign’s “Blase,” followed by reworks of “I Wish” by The Knocks and Matthew Koma and Miike Snow’s indie-pop track “Genghis Khan.” In 2017, Louis the Child put out remixes of Chance the Rapper and Knox Fortune’s track “All Night,” as well as “Telegraph Ave” by Childish Gambino. For the latter, the duo joined forces with Louis Futon. Followed by a year of focusing on their own material, Louis the Child returned to the remix game in 2019 with reworks of Elohim’s “The Wave” and Death Cab for Cutie’s “I Dreamt We Spoke Again.”
