As one of the most important tastemakers Europe has to offer, and affiliated with labels Brownswood, Blue Note, !K7 Records, Stones Throw and Jazzy Sport, world-renowned DJ LeFtO is consistently a couple of steps ahead of your average early adopter. Firmly rooted in jazz and hip hop, he sharpened his digging sensibility working at the now legendary Music Mania record store in hometown Brussels. Famed for his gloriously eclectic DJ sets, he switches effortlessly between hiphop, funk breaks, neck-snapping beats, future bass, South-American influences, bruk riddims and some wild African rhythms. A deejay and producer, he also curates his own stage at the Dour Festival and his own nights in Gent in collaboration with Democrazy. LeFtO has been a resident deejay for Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festivals since 2008 and also regularly blesses sound systems from Tokyo to Seoul.
