WIN! We have copies of Leftfield’s album Leftism 22 to be won!
Leftfield – Neil Barnes and Paul Daley – one of electronic music’s all time greatest acts – they are proud to announce the release of Leftism 22 a very special reissue of their seminal debut album Leftism and a UK tour where Leftfield (now led solely by Neil Barnes) will perform the record in full.
Leftism 22 is available to download and buy from 5 May via Sony CG. We have copies to be won!
Leftfield was formed in 1989, before emerging publicly in 1990 with Not Forgotten, a song that established a template for a new strain of British house leaning away from American styles dominating UK clubs. Released in January 1995, their debut album Leftism remains one of the defining statements of 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 album spawned numerous hit singles in Open Up – their now legendary collaboration with John Lydon; Original, featuring Curve’s Toni Halliday; Release the Pressure, featuring Earl Sixteen; and Afro-Left, with vocals by Neil Cole, aka DjumDjum.
“It’s hard to overestimate the significance of Leftism, roundly acknowledged upon its release in 1995 as the first truly complete album experience to be created by house musicians and the first quintessentially British one” – Q Magazine
