Leftfield are one of electronic music’s all-time greatest acts
Formed in 1989, Leftfield began as a duo however its current members are Neil Barnes (keyboards & programming), Adam Wren (engineering & programming) and Sebastion ‘Bid’ Beresford (drums).
Leftfield were very influential in the evolution of electronic music in the 1990s, with Mixmag describing them as “the single most influential production team working in British dance music”.
As with many of their contemporaries, such as the Chemical Brothers, Leftfield were notable for their use of guest vocalists in their works. Among those involved were Toni Halliday on “Original”, Johnny Rotten on “Open Up”, Djum Djum on “Afro-Left”, and Earl 16 and Cheshire Cat on “Release the Pressure”.
Leftfield’s last album, Alternative Light Source, was released in June 2015, following the Mercury Prize-nominated Leftism (1995) and Rhythm and Stealth (1999). The term “progressive house” was coined to define their style, a fusion of house with dub and reggae.
Leftfield is currently touring with a series of worldwide show dates in 2019 – A full range of official merchandise can be purchased via the Leftfield online store.
