Biography

Le Youth has been a constant force in dance music since his crossover hits 'C O O L' and 'Dance With Me' stormed the UK charts in 2013. Fast forward almost 7 years and numerous records, remixes and a quarter of a billion streams later, Le Youth continues to elevate his artistry with his recent offering "Aquiver EP" on Lane 8's This Never Happened imprint at the end of 2019. 
 Heavily inspired by the deep melodic techno and progressive sounds that came out of Europe from the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Eric Prydz and more recently Lane 8, Yotto, and Ben Bohmer, Le Youth's decision to make new music made almost exclusively for the dance floor, was a deliberate one. 
 Wes James, aka Le Youth, began collecting iconic vintage studio equipment and synthesizers over the past 2 years. His exploration of these pieces, by both experimenting with them himself and learning of their usage throughout dance music history, led Wes down a new musical avenue rediscovering some of the true analog essence of dance music. 
 2020 will be an interesting year for Le Youth and his musical output on This Never Happened, Island Records and his new label and event brand PRGRSSN.
