Words about Lil Louis…
As a child, Lil’ Louis learn to play drums and bass and during the mid-’70 he starts djing, opening his own Future club in Chicago, in 1975. Then he starts to experiment tape editing techniques. In 1980 he produces House music and he signs as co-author the House anthem “7 Ways To Jack” alongside Marshall Jefferson. In 1987 his ‘French Kiss’ single launches him, he signs to Epic label, releasing his debut album “From the Mind of Lil’ Louis” in 1989.
French Kiss is probably one the record I’ve played the most in my DJ Sets. Besides the fact it’s the perfect track to give a new breath and a great warmness to a party, this classic piece is really appreciated by the audience and even requested. For the times I did not played it, I sometimes heard : “That was great, but he did not play Lil Louis tonight…” !
