Legendary electronica outfit Leftfield today announce their their third album, ‘Alternative Light Source’, will be released on June 8, some 16 years after their last-long play ‘Rhythm and Stealth’.
Throughout the 90s Leftfield were untouchable live and on record, starting the snowball rolling for British dance heavy weights like Orbital, Underworld and the Chemical Brothers to bring underground dance music to the charts.
Leftfield have shared a new track from the album, ‘Univeral Everything’, and for our money it could well be 2015’s ultimate banger.
It’s an unrelenting techno assault on the senses from start to finish, as you’re pummelled with waves of throbbing basslines and rave-induced hooks all the while set to a ridiculously brisk 90s drum line.
