10 Years Of Leftroom

Leftroom Records
Leftroom celebrates ten years strong with this part-forward thinking and part re-jigged retrospective. Three fresh Matt Tolfrey collaborations kick things off; his and Route 94's funk-edged and swinging ‘Get Down’; the insanely peculiar and bass-heaving ‘Can You Control It’ with Heartthrob; and onto the altered state atmospherics on ‘Infizero’, with Guit. The self-revised Audiojack track ‘Robot’ is a reminder of just how much dance music — for the UK underground, at least — has been refined. In fact, the same can be said for Tolfrey/Simko's sharper 2015 mix of ‘Go On Then’, compared to the laid-back original. Jay Haze, Laura Jones, Jasper James and Signal Flow round this superb collection up. Ten years is a remarkable achievement, and this is as good as any VA out at the moment.
