About this deal

When I DJ, I get people asking me why I don't play any Leftfield records. I just explain that I'll happily listen to other people play Leftfield records, or I'll play them at home. I DJ to salute other people's music, not to promote myself. l think the whole hype and celebrity thing sometimes over­shadows the music." A lot of people caned the last album... but that's their prerogative. I can't make people like our music. Some people slag you off to be anti-fashion, some people slag you off to be fashionable, y'know. Some people will say you're the greatest thing since sliced bread, just to be fashionable, or because they want you to like them, If they start saying, 'Paul Daley is a wanker 'cos he's got smelly feet,' then that's different because that's personal. How do they know if I've got smelly feet? They don’t know if I'm a wanker because they don't know me. You can’t judge someone’s personality by their music.”

That video we made was like a dark comedy. It's not meant to be taken seriously. They sent us a list of reasons why they banned it: drug abuse, fear, loss of limbs, death, promotion of drugs, y'know.” Worthy, Stephen (2 June 2017). "Leftfield 'Leftism 22' (Sony Legacy UK)".

Hung Medien. Retrieved 10 September 2018. Leftism was released on 30 January 1995 in the United Kingdom by Columbia Records. [4] In the United States, it was released on 15 August.

More recently, Leftism has been declared the Great­est Dance Album Of All Time in a poll of top DJs. Warranted praise indeed, for its timeless mix of ribcage-shaking dub and grandiose, futuristic techno sounds like it was made an hour ago. Thanks to everyone who's helped and supported us, too many to mention, you know who you are. Dedicated to the memory of Monty Barnes. Me and Neil have a working relationship and we've never really stopped and analysed it. At the end of the day, when you work that intensely, it goes beyond friendship. Spending that much time together probably isn't good. I mean, I can be a total prat with studio people, but that's my personality.


a b c d e f "Burn Bassbins Burn". Mixmag. Vol.2, no.45. February 1995. Archived from the original on 21 September 2012 . Retrieved 12 May 2020. Leftfield are giving their 1995 debut 'Leftism' and 1999's follow-up 'Rhythm And Stealth' fresh double-vinyl pressings, out 19th May. As the world of dance music exploded overground in the mid-’90s, many of its luminaries wore a clearly identifiable Leftfield influence on their sleeves (or grooves), among them Underworld, The Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Daft Punk and Orbital. You'd assume this would be a source of great pride for Daley.
