Described by Fact! Magazine “your favourite dj’s favourite dj”, affiliated with Brownswood Recordings, Blue Note, !K7 Records, and one the most important tastemakers Europe has to offer. 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 one of his 580 shows 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 and a mix for the famous Ninja Tune Solid Steel series. LeFtO is forever moving forwards but always got an ear in the past. Famed for his gloriously eclectic dj sets, he switches effortlessly between genres. 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 of Gent. World renowned, LeFtO regularly blesses sound systems from Tokyo to Seoul , Singapore to Manila, Kazakhstan to Germany, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
With residencies in Amsterdam, Paris and New York, the man is unstoppable.. The travel resulted in a compilation on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings with DJ Simbad, a compilation for Universal Music, a couple releases in collaboration with Los Angeles based label 101 Apparel, and his latest compilation for BBE/Southport Weekender.
