Le Youth @ Marquee Friday 2/21/2014
by Stephen Mann


Wes James aka Le Youth is one of the most unique and enigmatic producers in the dance music scene today. He creates more than a just a special sound with his music.  He brings with him to his live set a West Coast beach and California-sunshine vibe that will keep you moving all night, even in the coldest Minnesota winter. Le Youth has recreated the 90’s era sound and given it the perfect 21st century touch. 

Check out his debut single, “Cool” below:

2013 turned as a massive year for Le Youth, as his single, “Cool” hit 200,000 plays on Soundcloud in just weeks. He soon signed with Ultra Records and subsequently released the widely acclaimed “Cool EP”. Le Youth has since remixed Chromeo, Disclosure, and Sam Smith and has done a live mix for BBC1 and even has an exclusive mix released for Urban Outfitters

Bringing his retro style to music, while keeping a noticeably modern danceable sound has Le Youth being described as, “A producer without a past who’s music is steeped in it”. Wes James’ music is the sound of long cloudless days of summer vacation; in his music he embodies the freedom we experienced in those days, and he has the unique ability to bring the listener back to those experiences and those moments in his live set.  You have been warned: This music will make you fall in love with your high school sweetheart all over again.

Wes’s Twitter bio describes him simply and perfectly:

“it’s complicated”
