  • Description Five releases in and the Leftd formula of pushing the most upfront talent is certainly bearing fruit. On the labels fifth release 8 of its highlights get the remix treatment from label mainstays and keeps up the relentless tide of the Leftd ones to watch. Waifs and Strays 3am gets the Geddes treatment, pushing a ruthlessly efficient bass line against the hips while the vocals add a tripped out quality. Tight and sexy the track rolls along, locking the floor into step pushing a metronomic familiarity that will have bodies writhing at 3am. Mark Chambers focuses on the warmth of John Johrs Baby, working the beats with the large sweeping chords to set a gentle floating rhythm. Waifs and Strays start things off on a jacking trajectory, building immediately, consistently adding momentum as they go. The killer blow comes after the tracks seeming climax, continues to radiate until the last beat. Dropping things into more tripped out territories, Techniques Christian Maiden twists Rusty James Everybodys Talkin a full 180 degrees. Driven by a haunting melody and snickering percussion, the track creates a claustrophobic atmosphere for darker moments on the floor. In the hands of Maher Daniel, Mark Chambers From London is toughened up and condensed into a heads down stomper. Organic sounding bass and raw drums give it a smoky, dark energy. His take on Stojches Shaking Cold finds Jacksonville in charming form. Letting loose a light, airy melody, he deploys squelching bass and vocal snippets to create Leftd 5s homage to the US routes that have influenced the whole Leftroom family. Providing the source material again, Shaking Cold allows a departure for Matthew Burton and Nick Lawson from their usual wandering style. The pair takes things direct and dubby, creating space for the pounding drums to move through. Raw, untreated sounds add texture to the smooth chords, adding fresh momentum at every turn. You Aint Dancin, in the hands of Nikko Gibler bubbles and clicks with mechanical precision. The tight electronic funk here pushes against the trends of todays floor and shows how Leftd as a label is open to any music with something to say. Five releases in and the 8 tracks on show again provide a snapshot of modern underground house music. From the super deep funked up core to the twisted outer limits, the label continues to break fresh talent and put a vibrant spin on todays dancefloors.
