One of the most important tastemakers Europe has to offer” – Resident Advisor
Soundcrash are extremely happy to announce that Belgium’s eclectic musical connoisseur Lefto will be returning to Kamio for another journey into the world of weird and wonderful beats and breaks.
After providing some of the standout DJ sets of the year at Shapes and Kamio in 2016, the chance to attend one of Lefto’s London performances are fast becoming must attend occasions.
Lefto possesses a tasteful ear that has led him to be being an early supporter of many names who have since gone on to become legends in the modern music world, from El-P to Flying Lotus, Lefto is someone who commands the ears and respect of the likes of Renaat from R&S, Rough Trade, MTV and Gilles Peterson.
World renowned, Lefto regularly blesses sound systems from Tokyo to Seoul and Singapore to New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Expect an evening of hip hop, funk, breaks, neck-snapping beats, future bass, South-American influences, bruk riddims and some wild African rhythms as he switches effortlessly between the genres.
His deep roots in jazz made him a natural for a Blue Note remix album, but the label he’s most closely affiliated with since its inception is Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings. Lefto has been resident for the Worldwide Festivalin Sète, France and in Singapore and has his own stage at the Dour Festival.
