Louis The Child Announce Genre Defying “Alter-Ego” Takeover at Brooklyn Mirage
We’re tuned to expect specific sounds from our favorite artists. Go to an Excision show and you’re getting an abundance of ground-shaking bass and dubstep growls. Seeing Armin van Buuren entails a bright mix of progressive house and trance.
But once in a while, major artists surprise us with stark deviations from their established sounds, like Dillon Francis trading his moombahton style for deep house or deadmau5 eschewing his signature electro flair in favor of obscure, pulsing techno under his TESTPILOT moniker.
It’s rare to see an event dedicated to artists exploring their left-field tastes though—something Louis The Child hope to change with their latest event concept, "Alter-Ego," a multi-stage takeover of the Brooklyn Mirage.
“We wanted to create an event where artists are given a platform to express different sides of themselves and fans are given a totally unique experience,” Louis The Child said in a joint statement. “It’s a type of show we would love to go to, so why not create it?”
