Dear 2009, I would like to see Hey Champ and Louis La Roche please. Thank you. Love, Shelves of Vinyl
Louis La Roche is 18 years wise.
Louis La Roche is way ahead of you. He has been sitting in his bedroom mixing beats, searching for hidden those hidden gems and choosing samples all in preparation to sting your ears in 2009 when hopefully he will make his way across the pond towards us. Although he hails from the UK he is all the rave on the French underground pop music scene and has his parents contrasting music tastes to thank. There is something to be said about ruining your children's ears from the very beginning!

Hey Champ have been touring throughout the states opening in support for Lupe Fiasco who recently signed them to his record label, 1st and 15th. During CMJ their drummer Johnathan Marks gained affection amongst all the zillions of drummers to check out during the hectic week of music. Understandably so from this clip of their performance at Pianos. You can keep up with all of their happenings and even check out their top tracks from 2008 on their blog. Most impressive of all on their touring roster is their upcoming direct support to Justice on New Years Eve. Hopefully we will be hearing much more about these merrimakers and seeing some local tour dates sometime soon since if there was ONE thing 2008 lacked it was enough music to dance to!
