All too often, we hear songs and remixes smothered with unnecessary complexity, caked with overpowering sounds. Lucky for us, Los Angeles DJ Le Youth has found a finesse in simplicity – adhering to leisurely grooves and airy synthesizers that “pull a listener back to the pre=millennial, pre-Internet days when dance music offered a transcendentally blissful brand of hedonism.” Well put.
Recently, Le Youth has had his hand in a remix of Disclosure’s “Voices” and his original track “C O O L,” which is a play on the throwback “Me And You” by Cassie. Released today is a remix of Chromeo’s funk masterpiece “Come Alive,” which Le Youth transforms into a contagiously chill and stripped down groove. Give the remix a listen, and catch the release of his single “Dance with Me” featuring Dominique Young Unique on February 9th.
