In My House with Philou Louzolo

In My House presents house like it was meant to be: open minded. If one DJ can adhere to this vision, it’s Philou Louzolo. At the moment he’s working hard on his route to success and after In My House heard his afro-futurism tracks it was clear: Philou Louzoulo and his warm sound is definitely at home in BIRD.
