Belgian tastemaker DJ Lefto has often been described as the DJ’s DJ. On his long-running Studio Brussels FM radio show, which soon celebrates its 17th year, you’ll catch tracks far ahead of their release date deftly married with tunes from all ends of the globe.

It was this knack for finding eclectic music that caught the ear of Gilles Peterson, whom he is affiliated with via the Worldwide Family collective and Brownswood Labels, as well as !K7, Stones Throw, Jazzy Sport and Blue Note.

Ahead of his Wellington and Auckland sets, Yadana Saw sits down with fresh-of-the-plane Lefto to talk about the art and ears of DJing.
