WITH special guest dj : LEFTO
thePeople has been a hub for worldwide underground music for more than 4 years. This month, we continue to extend our global family with a visit from Belgium's own Lefto.
Affiliated with labels like Brownswood, Blue Note, and Stones Throw, DJ, producer Lefto is one the most important tastemakers in Europe and a host on Belgium's national radio station, Studio Brussel. Firmly rooted in jazz, hip hop, and funk, Lefto's passion resulted in a remix album for Blue Note. His eclectic dj sets expand effortlessly from these roots to future bass, South-American influences, bruk riddims and afrocentric sounds.
Lefto has blessed sound systems from Tokyo to Seoul and Singapore to New York. He has been a resident deejay for Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festivals since 2008 around the world, curates his own stage at the Dour Festival, and his own nights in Gent in collaboration with Democrazy. This travel has resulted in a compilation on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings with partner in crime DJ Simbad. For more on this man of the world, check out his site: http://lefto.be/.
Saturday we'll also be celebrating the birthdays of
ms. Nabong, Cecil, and Hanif.
