When I was at university in the late '90s, the first thing anyone did when they met someone new was check out their CD collection. 9 times out of 10, the pile of plastic-cased discs would include a copy of UK electronic duo Leftfield's 1995 opus, Leftism. Tracks like "Melt" were standard afterparty fare: exactly what the doctor ordered after a night of sweaty techno. Twenty years on, Leftfield—now a solo act with founder Neil Barnes at the helm—has a new album on the way this June. And today The FADER is premiering one of its highlights, "Bilocation."
Drenched in reverb-heavy synths, the sultry single features Poliça's Channy Leaneagh on vocals. "Channy is such a creative person," Barnes told The FADER. "She gets into character and gets completely lost inside the music—'Bilocation' takes me to another world. We recorded the track in London, when she had some time off from touring, and it was just really easy and natural." Infectious Music will release Leftfield's new album Alternative Light Source on June 8th. "Bilocation" will follow on June 15th. Plus, fun fact: Barnes is FADER favorite Georgia's dad :)
