Le Youth – Dance With Me (feat. Dominique Young Unique)

Le Youth

Le Youth

Le Youth (aka Wes James or ‘The Youth’ if you are in France) is the uber cool remixer of the moment.

Growing up in Ohio during the US R&B and UK garage peak of the 90’s (and later moving to L.A.), there are clear cross-border influences in Le Youth’s music. To date, remixes under his belt include those of Sam Smith and Disclosure.

His latest tropitronica triumph is ‘Dance With Me’ featuring Dominique Young Unique whereby Le Youth samples TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’. Check out the cheeky vid below:

It is undoubtedly clear that Le Youth does it all for the absolute love of music, which makes him a pretty loveable guy. Oh yea son we’re talking to you.

He has just finished his UK tour, but we are sure he’ll be back in no time.

Purchase on iTunes via Sign Of The Times here.

Sounds like: Lane 8, Disclosure, Sam Smith, Ben Pearce, Ben Khan, Duke Dumont, Foxes
