Three years after meeting at a Madeon concert, the electronic pop production duo Louis the Childwould open one of his shows. The Chicago-area pair — born Robert “Robby” David Hauldren and Frederic “Freddy” Judson Kennett — went to the same high school and had their own respective projects, but their paths never crossed. Hauldren manned the turntables as Haul Pass, while Kennettproduced under the moniker Fatboy. After meeting on March 18, 2012 at that fateful Madeon set, the pair decided to join forces and start making music together, even though Kennett was wrapping up high school and Hauldren had just enrolled at the University of Southern California. They titled their debut EP Dimensions and would release a series of singles – “It’s Strange” with K.Flay, “Weekend” with Icona Pop, and “Fire” with Evalyn — in the years that followed.
