Soul City connects the dots between hip hop, soul, funk and disco, dipping into classic tracks and brand new sounds from around the world.
Each Friday we invite our favourite selectors to dig deep and take us on a trip through some of their most-loved party tunes and soul-inspired grooves.
As one the most important tastemakers Europe has to offer, and affiliated with labels Brownswood, Blue Note, K7 Records, Stones Throw and Jazzy Sport, Lefto has consistently remained a couple steps ahead of the curve.
World renowned, Lefto has been a resident deejay for Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festivals since 2008 and regularly blesses sound systems from Tokyo to Seoul and Singapore to New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Firmly rooted in jazz and hip hop, Lefto sharpened his digging sensibility working at the now legendary Music Mania record store in hometown Brussels. Famed for his gloriously eclectic DJ sets, he switches effortlessly between hip hop, funk, breaks, future bass, South-American influences and African rhythms.
