Part of the YouTube Channels takeover
YouTube has become a primary platform for promoting and supporting electronic music since the end of the last decade. Through radio rips, full length tracks and visual accompaniments, the second largest search engine has allowed ordinary lovers of electronic music to launch and grow channels showcasing their taste and, in turn, make them into valued curators. Running one ourselves for the past four years, we value the amount of work that these channels do in order to keep people up to date with the latest music and support the scene. That’s why this week we’ve lined up seven YouTube channels we listen to on a daily basis to pick out Tracks Of The Day, shining a light on underground channels we respect and allowing them to showcase their sound.
Hailing from Paris, Les Yeux Orange started as a YouTube channel, blog and mix series by two guys passionate about electronic music. “Into many things, house, techno, acid, electro as well as in older vintage electronics like italo, minimal-wave, cosmic, synth, library & so on” they offer something for everyone looking for that quick electronic fix. In 2014, joined by two young producers LeonxLeon and Alan Dente, they started an events series booking the likes of I-F, Yan Wagner, Albion, Sacha Mambo, Aroy Dee and Beppe Loda. Last year was the start of their radio show, a platform used for them to share their premieres and YouTube uploads.
Alongside DJing across Europe, plans to start their own record label and more in the works, it’s easy to see Les Yeux Orange is going from strength to strength. Giving you a taste of their sound, they select four tracks out of their personal collections. You can catch the tram playing in London at the almighty Canavan’s Peckham Pool club next week.
