PHILOU LOUZOLO

Philou is an artist hailing for his audience to perceive traditional African music within the realm of a more obscure, sci-fi and techno indwelled electronic music experience, hereby fast-forwarding its ancestral prospects into the future.

Being away from the scene entirely in 2018 led him to mature his musical ambitions. Sidestepping Afro cliches in favor of appropriating its tropical nature led him to revisit his childhood, where he found new purpose in the futuristic fantasy worlds familiar to him as a young boy. Reconnecting with his sense of self as an artist and producer, urged him to avoid focussing merely on the diffusion of traditional records from Africa but rather to expand its scope by adding layers of obscurity found in techno, sci-fi, acid house and electro. Altering the expectations of genre, the prism of Afrofuturism in his new sound even reflects afrohouse, afrobeats and more. Louzolo’s vision is fueled by artists like Drexciya, Black Coffee, Jeff Mills and Black Motion.

His comeback symbolizes an intrinsic, deeply personal need to connect the traditional ancestral sound with progressive sounds of intergalactic electronic music. The ultimate expression of his break from the scene is the birth of his label Wokoundou, which is not just a record label but a world in itself, more like a multiverse, where time and space create an endless surge of movement, knowledge, creativity and play connecting the then and now of African sounds. Louzolo is in the process of creating, keeping one foot on the African soil while both his hands are reaching for the future sky above and beyond us, with expanding the genre of African music as his ultimate quest.
