Twenty years after the Mercury-nominated Leftism and 5 after reviving his band for a series of live shows, founder Neil Barnes has brought Leftfield back to the very centre of modern electronic music.
Leftfield have always been about the tension between weight and weightless, between intensity and calm, between pressure and release. These qualities are all over the new record, Alternative Light Source, which proves the pioneers of electronic dance music can still produce wild tracks thrumming with bold bass and intense rhythm.
Bringing together a full band and Barnes’ own enviable skills as a DJ and composer, Leftfield Live will be an all-encompassing maelstrom of enriching sights and sounds.

‘“Hands go in the air, cheering and whistling breaks out and perhaps at least one person sees the face of God.’
