Neil Barnes has been taking his Leftfield DJ Set around the world with an eclectic, modern club set with some of the best new house and techno and delivers a masterclass in an all-encompassing vortex of rich sounds.
Throughout the 90s Leftfield were untouchable live and on record. Their debut Leftism, remains one of the defining statements of 90s dance music, a gloriously inter-woven bombardment of musical styles and immaculate grooves, nominated for a Mercury prize and later voted in the top ten greatest albums of all time by readers of Q magazine.
The 90s were all but over when the second Leftfield album appeared in Autumn 1999. Rhythm And Stealth worked with a darker hue and more pronounced techno influence, guests including Roots Manuva, MC Cheshire Cat and Afrika Bambaataa on first single Afrika Shox, which reached the UK top ten.
The album - like its predecessor - would be nominated for a Mercury prize while one of its tracks, Phat Planet, soundtracked the award-winning ‘Surfer’ advert for Guinness.
In 2015, Leftfield released their third album ‘Alternative Light Source’ to enormous acclaim and great success, with vocal contributions from Channy (Poliça), Tunde Adebimpe (TVOTR) and Sleaford Mods.
