You might recognise him from a brief appearances in his familyís TV series but over the past few years heís been gaining a mean reputation as a deep house/techno DJ.
How long have you been on-site Louis?
I got here about six so Iím getting into the groove and having a few drinks.
Are you planning to watch anybody else later?
Iíd like to but to be honest I got here a bit late. Iíve actually got to leave tomorrow quite early because itís my nieceís christening. So I canít have a completely mad one. Honest! Iíve got a lot of friends who I havenít seen for ages, who work at this place so I might have a mooch around.
Would you have changed anything with the Homelandís line up this year?
I think theyíve done a pretty good job already. Maybe a bit more techno, a bit more underground stuff. Thereís a bit of everything here for everybody. Theyíve branched out more into the live thing this year and theyíve put on the alternative tent with the likes of Erol Alkan.
What have you got planned for tonightís set?
Every week I play tech-y, tribally house. I donít like this disco, namy-pamby stuff.
Whatís happened to your Birmingham residency (at techno mecca ĎHouse of Godí?)
I was doing the residency there for about five years, every month. Iím so busy working all over the place these days I donít have time to go back there and do it. Iíve got an album coming out in the states on June 11th (Motion Audio Volume 1). Iíve got thirty-five dates in the states over two and a half months. So itís boom-boom-boom!
Youíve been playing over there quite a lot there lately, as wellÖ
Yeah, I made a decision about three years ago to concentrate on the USA because I was finding it difficult to get breaks over here Ďcos itís so saturated. Iíve got family over there, as you know, so I play there a lot. Iíve got a good manager over there and itís completely blown up in America for me now.
Do you think Americaís really down with the whole dance culture?
It kinda is. Itís still not as good as here. Iíve been working hard now at it so Iím starting to get all the good gigs. Iím playing all the best places in America so itís good.
At the age of sixteen, you went along to your first rave alone. That must have been quite an experience?
I was a bit nervous. I didnít start listening to dance music or going raving because of peer pressure or anything like that. I went to boarding school when I was too young to be in the acid-house explosion but Iíd always read about it in the newspapers. So I heard about it, heard about the drugs and the whole thing. There was this rave on and I was supposed to go with this mate but his mum wouldnít let him go in the end. So I went on a train, down to Exeter from Birmingham, got a taxi out to Westpoint and went to Fantazia, completely on my own. And it was my calling. That was it - yes - itís me. I then inflicted a certain amount of peer pressure onto all my mates and the next thing you know, itís, ďYeah, weíve all found it.Ē But I went there out of curiosity. Iíd heard a lot about it. Iíd read about it so I thought Iíd go and give it a try.
