Le-Youth-R-E-A-L

The sounds of Le Youth continue to resonate throughout the blogosphere & the internet with his new track “R E A L”.  Not many artists tow the line between Disco & House as well as Le Youth does, which is a big part of why his sound resonates with so many.  On “R E A L”, Le Youth adds some gloss to the Brandy song “I Wanna Be Down” & conjures up an outstanding, chopped up rework of the 1994 classic.  The combination here of Disco & House is already a winning formula.  But when you add in a healthy dose of R&B to the mix…well that’s almost unfair to make a track this enjoyable.

Man, the Love Sublime EP release is just so perfect. Tensnake has lined up an unreal remix cast for the March 9th release, with Duke Dumont, Le Youth, Jonas Rathsman, and Ewan Pearson all contributing their styles on the already groovy original. The Duke himself posted up his rendition via Soundcloud this week, and it’s easy to tell that we’ll be hearing this many times leading into the spring. Mark your calendars, Tensnake will be bestowing his very much anticipated debut full length, Glow, on March 11th just in time for festie season :) √+

It’s always a treat to hear something new from our L.A. compadre Le Youth.  The sound of Le Youth transcends the overly familiar brands of tropical/deep/nu disco sounds we’ve been over exposed to over the last few years.  Le Youth has created a brand of electronic all his own.  It’s a modernized throwback sound that fuses together all the right elements of sunny disco & old school house.  His latest remix of “Fade” by Jakwob balances that disco/house sound brilliantly.  Whether it’s billowing through the speakers at a club & filling the room with joy or sweeping over the sands of a beach party, Le Youth’s remix of “Fade” will keep any party going, daytime or night.

When talking about deep, captivating, Summer-y dance music, names like Perseus, Moon Boots, Plastic Plates & Goldroom are the standout names.  One name that should be added to the list is L.A. producer Wes James, aka Le Youth.  After remixing some of the aforementioned names, Le Youth dropped a bomb on the dance world with his track “Dance With Me”.  Over the last few months, “Dance With Me” has grown and grown and is now a staple in every Summer-vibed DJ set.

Le Youth released the follow up to that massive tune today, the song “Memories”.  ”Memories” delivers more silky smooth dance floor goodness with Le Youth’s signature tropical bounce and creamy Rn’B vibes.  And just for good measure, Le Youth is kindly giving the track away for free!
