It’s been 20 years since Leftfield’s groundbreaking electronic album Leftism brought British rave and house music culture to a whole new audience. Their 1999 follow-up Rhythm and Stealth cemented Neil Barnes and Paul Daley’s place alongside fellow UK dance music giants of the time, think Chemical Brothers, Underworld and Fat Boy Slim.

Last year saw the release of Alternative Light Source, the new long player by the act who are no longer a duo.

Ahead of his appearance at Splore Festival in February, Neil Barnes talks to Yadana Saw.
