My first experience with LA-based producer Le Youth was at Mad Decent Block Party 2016 in Phoenix, Arizona. He quickly caught my attention with his unique way of reworking 90’s and 00’s hits into his set. Since then, Le Youth has been on our radar.
Le Youth’s signature move is bringing a sense of nostalgia to listeners, masterfully sampling older tracks and giving them a modern day “facelift”. His most well known hit, C O O L, is the perfect example of this; sampling R&B singer Cassie’s 2006 smash “Me & U”. Le Youth’s take on “Me & U” has scored him over 40 million Spotify streams.
