Modern day Electro Pop queen Jess Glynne gets the remix treatment from Le Youth on her latest single “Hold My Hand”. The remix package for “Hold My Hand” is stellar with additional remixes by MJ Cole & Chris Lake (the latter was featured HERE last week on GDD). Le Youth slices up the original & delivers a glittery House music hoedown. Le Youth’s remix offers up nothing but feel-goods with its steady dose of bouncing piano & well placed vocal chops. It’s the perfect track to post on the first day of the equinox…Spring begins NOW.
Our man Le Youth is one of our favorite music makers. He’s an old soul with modern flair. He’s developed a sound that always manages to simultaneously sound classic AND fresh. And he always pulls it off with miles of style. Le Youth is back at it again with his latest track, “T O U C H”, a track that House heads, Disco lovers & pretty much any dance floor freak out there will no doubt fall in love with. With a vocal to die for & a beat that sounds good in any era, “T O U C H” will most certainly touch you in all the right places.
“Ain’t nobody gonna T O U C H you better”
Los Angeles DJ/producer duo Bixel Boys had one of the biggest come-ups in 2014. Their #FREELIFE campaign stamped their ideology and branding on the foreheads of music and fashion junkies alike. Not to mention, their tunes are next level. Their first release of 2015 comes in the form of an official remix for Le Youth and his track “Real.” The boys take the nu-disco laced tune and flip it into a faster paced, more futuristic house heater. If you’re digging this, pre-order it now and show them some love.

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.

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.
