Lefto presents Jazz Cats (SDBAN ULTRA October 5, 2018) CD / 2 LP

“Lefto continues to bridge the gap between the old school & new school... elements of traditional jazz meets modern day electronic influenced jazz”
Jamie Strong (Innovative Leisure, Los Angeles)

Growing up around jazz as a child, Lefto’s father would wake him up with the sounds of jazz flowing from the speakers and would often take him to dark and smoky bars around his home town of Brussels to hear the lastest Belgian jazz ensembles. Falling in love with jazz, he would later refine has knack for record digging while working at a record store in Brussels, immersing himself in hip hop and jazz.

Today, Lefto regularly blesses sound systems from Tokyo to Seoul and Singapore to New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. He's not only a deejay and producer but also curates his own stage at the Dour Festival and his own nights in Gent in collaboration with Democrazy.

Other releases on SDBAN include ‘Jack Sels: Minor Works’, ‘Funky Chimes: Belgian Grooves From The 70’s’ and ‘Let's Get Swinging: Modern Jazz In Belgium 1950 – 1970’. SDBAN ULTRA releases include like ‘Steiger: Give Space’, ‘Black Flower: Artifacts’ and ‘STUFF. Old Dreams New Planets’.
