As one the most important tastemakers Europe has to offer, and affiliated with Brownswood Recordings, Blue Note, !K7 Records, Jazzy Sport in Japan and Do-Over parties, this bearded early riser is consistently a couple steps ahead of your average early adopter.
He doesn't wait for the next thing to land on his lap, he actively seeks it out, therefore just take a peek at his playlists on Belgium's foremost national radio station Studio Brussel which received compliments from Rough Trade Shops, Gilles Peterson and featured on MTV Hive. However, don't assume that he's only working futuristic angles - no sir. 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. LeFtO is forever moving forwards but always got an ear in the past. Famed for his gloriously eclectic dj sets, he switches effortlessly between hip hop, funk breaks, neck-snapping beats, future bass, south-american influences, bruk riddims and some wild african rhythms. He's not only a deejay and producer but also curates his own stage at the Dour Festival and his own nights in the Belgian city Gent in collaboration with local event organisation Democrazy.
World renowned, LeFtO regularly blesses sound systems from Tokyo to Seoul , Singapore to New York, Kazakhstan to Germany, San Francisco and Los Angeles. He has been a resident deejay for Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festivals since 2008 around the world.
Camera under the arm, he is also one of the few deejays on this planet who can deejay somewhere and have a nice movie on the internet a couple hours later, with over 250 videos on Youtube and Vimeo, he's very creative with it. The travel resulted in a compilation on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings with partner in crime DJ Simbad. In 2012 he has put out two compilations, one for American brand 101Apparel and the other one for Universal Music. In 2013 more compilations and collaborations are in the pipeline.
