Artist Biography

Real Name: Neil Barnes, Paul Daley
Genre: Electronica

Leftfield are a British duo of electronica artists and record producers, namely Paul Daley (formerly of The Rivals, A Man Called Adam and the Brand New Heavies) and Neil Barnes, who formed in 1990 in London, England. The name Leftfield was originally used simply by Barnes for its first single, "Not Forgotten", but after this, Daley was involved first in remixing songs and then in the creation of music.

The pair were pioneers in the fields of intelligent dance music and progressive house, being among the first to fuse house music with dub and reggae.[citation needed] They were among the first electronic musicians to incorporate live guest vocalists, along with The Chemical Brothers and Underworld. Ultimately the duo have been influential on the electronic genre as a whole, with The Crystal Method's Scott Kirkland referring to them in 2005 as "the best electronic band, period!"

Leftfield headlined Creamfields in Cheshire in August 2010, RockNess in Scotland in June 2010, and played the final set on the main stage at Ireland's three day festival, 'Electric Picnic' in September. Further headline festival shows were to be announced in the coming weeks. However, Leftfield will be represented by Barnes alone with a backing band and singers, as Daley is concentrating on his DJ work, as well as releasing a solo album.
