Are you ready to go back? Way back. Back to the days of Real World Hawaii, Frosted Tips (Yeah, we had those), and yes - a never-ending slew of R&B jams that are probably responsible for many of your most seminal make out experiences.

Luckily for us all, not only is the budding Angeleno artist Le Youth a skilled DJ and producer, but also an esteemed time traveler, one who on his latest mix for ON DECK, takes our ears back to the turn of the millennia, with throwback anthems from Janet Jackson, Nelly, Ciara, Mario and Jagged Edge.

In Le Youth's artfully conditioned style, he also manages to sneak in an effective serving of deep house, like his original cuts "R E A L" and "T O U C H," tracks with a vibe that owe much of their roots the the soulful DNA of R&B.

While you jam out to Le Youth's ON DECK, and get overcome with feelings of adolescent nostalgia, take a gander at his tour dates below. Maybe you can even ring up your high school shawty to slow dance with you at one of these nightclubs....
