    As one the most important tastemakers Europe has to offer, and affiliated with Brownswood Recordings, Blue Note, !K7 Records, Jazzy Sport in Japan and the world famous Do-Over parties from Los Angeles, 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, featured on MTV Hive and is one of Okayplayer's favorite selectors. 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, house and techno, 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. The travel resulted in a compilation on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings with partner in crime DJ Simbad. In 2012 he released two compilations, one for American brand 101Apparel and the other one for Universal Music.
