In full and in his own words, this is what you can expect from Le Youth's music: "Tracks that are serious about moving a dance floor full of people without coming on too strong. Breezy California vibes touched by a twist of European flair and an air of mystery."
C O O L, which sampled Cassie Ventura's Me & U, was picked up by Ultra Records and released in July 2013 after rapidly received over 200,000 plays on Soundcloud in a short period of time. It debuted what has swiftly become Le Youth's signature style. Picture: Facebook
Le Youth hooked up with up and coming American rapper Dominique Young Unique who provided vocals on his latest track Dance With Me. The song samples that famous line 'If you live at home with your muma' from TLC's No Scrubs and is an absolute tune.
He put his own spin on Disclosure and Sasha Keable's 2013 hit Voices and more recently Sam Smith's debut single Money On My Mind. Both have leisurely grooves but wouldn't be out of place on the dancefloor. Picture: Facebook
Often making it on to our prestigious 'Tweets Of The Week' list, Le Youth knows how to crack a joke or two on the social networking site. We see that 6000 follower figure drastically rising soon.
Le Youth will be joining some of the world's best DJs including Hardwell Avicii and DJ Fresh, with his own monthly show on Capital XTRA. Catch 'Le Youth's Friday Night House Party' one Friday every month. In a recent interview with CoCo Cole he promised we can expect "90's throwbacks and r&b".
