LA producer Wes James (AKA Le Youth) dips his toes into the vast Lana Del Rey remix pool with a lovely disco-infused take on “Ride.” James’ remix of this tuneful ballad off LDR’s Paradise EP offers more of the same laid-back funkiness that recently caught our ears in his original track “Cool”.

A man of humble musical roots, Wes is a Toledo native who “was influenced by the idea that music could get me out of Ohio.” A coworker showed him how to use synths and drum machines while he was selling records at a “lame department store” in Seattle, and the rest is history. According to the same La Nuit interview, Wes claims to have an English Bulldog who enjoys skateboarding. Support the two by following Wes on Facebook and SoundCloud.
