Leftfield – Swords [1999]

An absolutely farkin’ amazing tune from Leftfield, originally found on the legendary Rhythm & Stealth album but later released with a bunch of half decent mixes. But its all about the journey of the original. Its layering is perfect, conjuring a landscape of synthetic beats and sounds that would sound better suited to an ambient release if its wasnt for the malevolent broken beats and bassline that roll beneath the surface. Absolutely epic..

From Discogs
Leftfield’s ‘Swords’ is a piece of music that is so amazing that five years after first discovering it, still gives me shivers down my spine when I hear it. Beautiful vocals, swooning synths, and a throbbing bassline all make this one of my most favorite tunes.
