Noise Complaint ft. Le Youth
Fri, Mar 8 at 10pm
Noise Complaint and the Kremwerk/Timbre Room Complex are proud to present, two rooms of thoughtfully curated music featuring:
🎷 LE YOUTH 🎷
90s sounds refracted through a thoroughly modern aesthetic. Tracks that are serious about moving a dance floor full of people without coming on too strong. Breezy California vibes touched by a twist of European flair and an air of mystery. This is Le Youth.
The music career of Toledo, Ohio-born DJ and producer Wes James started when he became the drummer of a band in high school. Upon leaving school he moved to Seattle, Washington, and discovered electronic music when a colleague at the record retailer where he worked introduced him to the world of sequencers and drum machines. After moving back to Ohio, James divided his time between touring with friends' bands and writing his own material. By 2012 he had moved to Los Angeles, and that summer he issued a free download, "Dance with Me," his first track under the Le Youth moniker. Bloggers picked up on the '90s-era vibe that it betrayed, and the inventive way that it combined R&B and house. This period also saw James remix material for acts such as the Hint and Goldroom. Then, in July 2013, he hit the Top 30 of the U.K. singles chart with his debut single proper, "Cool," issued on the Sign of the Times label. James issued several more singles over the next few years, including 2014's "Dance with Me," which featured Dominique Young Unique, and the Javeon collaboration "Feel Your Love"; the following year's "Real" and "Touch"; and 2016's "Boomerang" and "If You're Leaving," which featured Tay Beckham and Sydnie, respectively. For 2017's "Walk Away," James repurposed the vocals from Paula DeAnda's 2006 hit. Later that year, he teamed up with Ava Max for the single "Clap Your Hands."
Wes James is the slightly enigmatic Angeleno behind Le Youth, a producer without a past whose music is steeped in it. His signature sound is a blend of Clinton-era R&B and the house music that was lighting up dance floors and radio stations around the globe during the same period, and the leisurely grooves, airy synthesizers, and pop hooks of a song like his debut single “C O O L” can easily pull a listener back to the pre-millennial, pre-Internet days when dance music offered a transcendentally blissful brand of hedonism that’s considerably harder to find on today’s aggro-edged EDM landscape.

🔇ABOUT NOISE COMPLAINT🔇
Gone is the party where the music and the people at the party mattered more than making money. As Electronic Dance Music has exploded in popularity over the last several years, so have crowds and ticket prices along with it. In the beginning, events were held in underground, often intimate venues. It was about the music, and it was about each other.
Noise Complaint is taking it back to its roots, bringing the people quality, dance floor focused house and techno all while pushing that party-don't-stop vibe that everyone loves. We're bringing in huge talent - DJs and producers that are well known and respected but that we also personally vibe with. We're doing this at a small price, and in an intimate space. It's about the music for us, it's about the party and the vibe and the memories and friends you will make. Every Noise Complaint should be the best party you've been to since well, the last Noise Complaint.
We're more than just a party, we're a movement. Join us 2nd Fridays at Kremwerk and become part of the family.
