Enticed into the mythical land of dance music a mere decade ago, Lou-is (aka Louis McCoy) found his life quite literally and unexpectedly spun inside up and outside in. Fuelled by the common drive of the seemingly uncommon deejay – that is, the irrepressible urge to express one's self through the medium of sound in hope of spreading these somewhat esoteric feelings to a wider audience – the house parties Lou-is began catering for frequently kept the floor, living room, basement et cetera, captivated until early light.

Crediting his parents for all things blues and rock & roll, his movement into hip hop was of his own accord. Yet for Lou-is these movements were still very much in process and the path he chose was ultimately defined by his pronounced affinity for the fundamentals of house music; "there's just something about that clap".

And with that we are very pleased to present to you the ever grateful and much loved Lou-is, as he takes you on his own poetic pilgrimage of where he's currently at and how he got there. This mix is either made to be listened immersed in nature or with loud headphones on, immersed in smoke – immersion is the key.

Sit back or stand up and enjoy this comprehensive two hours.
