Leftfield - one of electronic music's all-time greatest acts announce the release of Leftism 22, a very special reissue of their seminal debut album, and a UK tour where Leftfield will perform the record in full.

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 Djum Djum.

Leftism 22 arrives 22 years on from the release of the acclaimed original, in a remastered version overseen by Neil Barnes and Paul Daley. It will be available in a 2CD 22 track special edition featuring a bonus disc of the 11 album tracks remixed by a host of top house/electronica/techno artists (full tracklisting to follow).
