British duo formed in London in 1990. Duo decided to call it a day in 2002. When they played live in the 1990s they were joined onstage by Adam Wren, Nick Rapaccioli, Mc Cheshire Cat & Djum Djum.

In 2010 founding member Neil Barnes restarted Leftfield as a live tour including old companions Adam Wren, Cheshire Cat, Djum Djum and Earl Sixteen, and as a DJ artist name, but without Paul Daley.

… incredible, unique, evocative and defining sound of early, mid ‘90s house for me - quintessentially British, throwing dub reggae, hip hop and techno into the melting pot, with beats as phat as solideal solidair rubber track tyres on a JCB - Cut for Life a case in point: a dubby intro which switches gears into a maniacal chunky stomping anthem.

Leftism and the assorted mixes of tracks, such as the 3 Song of Life variants frame and set the tone of Sasha and Digweed’s Renaissance mix 1 from 1994 ( the era defining, never bettered mix album which launched a thousand mix albums lol 🚢 ). Incroyable! Superb remixes too, such as their thumping remix of Renegade Soundwave. Gone but (ahem) 😉 ‘Not Forgotten’ lol

( alternative light source doesn’t count 😝 )

probably the most influential tribal breakbeat act ever.
I could not say which one of the both outputs was better, I only know that it was damn pity that there were only two of it...

Leftfield's "Melt" is one to rival Orbital's "Belfast" words cannot describe this tune, Some music sounds good when you are in a happy mood, some when you are in a sad mood, these 2 sound perfect no matter if you are ecstatic or or in despair, brings a smile to your face, everything's gonna be alright, perfection.

Although they've now split up, these legends will never be forgotten. It's a shame they didn't make more albums, but the two they did changed dance music for the better. People will still be going ballistic to Phat Planet in 20 years time.

They are doing solo stuff now, which you should watch out for. Remember the names: Neil Barnes and Paul Daley.
