FR : Étant l’un des meilleurs dénicheurs de talents d’Europe, et affilié aux labels Brownswood, Blue Note, !K7 Records, Stones Throw and Jazzy Sport, Lefto a toujours une longueur d’avance sur le reste de la scène musicale. N’attendant pas que les opportunités lui tombent entre les mains, il est mu par un élan hyperactif – il suffit de jeter un œil aux playlists qu’il concocte pour la radio belge Studio Brussel, applaudies par Rough Trade Shops et Gilles Peterson. Ancré dans la culture jazz et hip-hop, il a affuûé sa sensibilité musicale et ses qualités de digger alors qu’il travaillait à la légendaire boutique Music Mania, dans sa ville d’origine de Bruxelles. Sa passion pour le jazz a donné naissance à un album de remixes pour Blue Note, prouvant que Lefto continue d’aller toujours plus de l’avant, tout en gardant une oreille tournée vers le passé. Célèbre pour ses DJ sets mixant sans effort hip-hop, funk, breaks, beat endiablés, future bass, influences Sud-Américaines, bruk riddims et rythmes Africains, Lefto n’est pas juste un DJ et producteur, mais également curator de scène au festival de Dour, et durant ses propres soirées à Gent en collaboration avec Democrazy. Toujours armé d’une caméra, il est également l’un des rares DJ capables de jouer quelque part, et de réaliser et poster un documentaire relatant l’évènement quelques heures plus tard.

UK : As one the most important tastemakers Europe has to offer, and affiliated with labels Brownswood, Blue Note, !K7 Records, Stones Throw and Jazzy Sport, Lefto is consistently a couple steps ahead of your average early adopter. He doesn’t wait for the next thing to land on his lap, actively seeking it out – just take a peek at his playlists on Belgium’s foremost national radio station Studio Brussel which received compliments from Rough Trade Shops and Gilles Peterson. Firmly rooted in jazz and hip hop, he sharpened his digging sensibility working at the now legendary Music Mania record store in hometown Brussels. His passion for jazz resulted in a remix album for Blue Note which was well received by the community, proving that Lefto is forever moving forward but always has an ear in the past. Famed for his DJ sets switching effortlessly between hip hop, funk, breaks, neck-snapping beats, future bass, South-American influences, bruk riddims and some wild African rhythms, Lefto is not only a DJ and producer but also curates his own stage at the Dour Festival and his own nights in Gent in collaboration with Democrazy. Always with a camera under the arm, he is also one of the few DJs on this planet who can play somewhere and have a nice movie on the internet a couple hours later.
