Phil Louzolo is a very promising DJ and producer from Rotterdam. With electronic captured in an African soul, he’s making a name for himself in Holland and far beyond. Louzolo’s signature sound is also his message: representing the pan-african culture and voice in the electronic music arena. He excels in an effortless musical marriage of electronic music and traditional music from the continent that carries his roots. Philou is aware about socially-political issues within the industry and keen to step into the break for his ideals.
His feature on an EP with the legendary Larry Heard on the A side in 2016 earned him recognition from around the world. The many festivals and clubs Louzolo performed at, illustrate his progressive and unique sound. A few names: P-Bar, Nuits Sonores, Dekmantel Selectors, North Sea Jazz, Lowlands and Atlas (Marrakech). At Atlas Festival he was flanked by a Moroccan live-act Bana. Another highlight is the success of his EP Alkbulan Republic which was a tribute to Nigerian pioneers such as Fela Kuti and William Onyeabor. This EP was recorded in collaboration with musicians from Ghana and Nigeria and mixed and produced by Philou in Rotterdam. This vinyl gem is repressed at least 4 times, and hit the Juno bestseller charts as well 4 times.
