The duo Louis the Child, with the help of the gifted vocalist Wafia, have released the head-nodding single "Better Not". The track is a sun's out, windows down, shout-out-loud without a care, future bass song that keeps it simple. Anchored by the strong vocal performance, Louis the Child strip back the future bass elements to deliver a fresh new sound. The drops are refreshing and unexpected, making you sit up when it waits that extra bar to unleash some bass. Wonky synths are perfection under a simply crisp drum section, subtle grimey bass and some creative effects rounding it out. "Better Not" perfectly balances a precise future bass/chillstep with a new creative perspective.

The tandem from Chicago is on pace to have a big impact on EDM in 2018. A string of irresistible dance singles like "Last to Leave" and "Right to It" have catapulted Louis the Child up the music ranks in a hurry. Already playing Coachella and scheduled to perform at Red Rocks, keep an ear out for these two and throw "Better Not" on repeat.
