As one of the most important collectives in British dance music history, Leftfield have fused house, techno, breaks, dub and more to fathom two of the best dance music albums of all time, Leftism and Rhythm and Stealth. Now, Leftfield are ready to tour their first album in 16 years, Alternative Light Source, which hit the shelves at the beginning of June this year.
Leftfield’s first two studio albums that were released in 1995 and 1999 contained iconic singles such as Afro Left, Phat Planet, Open Up and Song Of Life, with both narrowly missing out on The Mercury Music Prize, nevertheless the second did make it the No.1 spot on the Album Chart in the UK.
Alternative Light Source was released on the 8th June and has already made a mark on the music scene as it has reached number 6 and many of the singles have been tried and tested on dance floors all over the country. The dance music underground has also been receiving the album well, in particular the single Universal Everything, which has been remixed by the likes of Matt Dear as Audion and Legowelt, two hugely prominent names in the world of house and techno today.
Leftfield will visit The Institute on 9th October and will also visit London, Liverpool, Southampton and also Manchester, where they will play a date at The Warehouse Project.
