The exceptionally eclectic Leftfoot has revealed their autumn and winter programming, including a series of collaborations with Mostly Jazz, Funk and Soul festival.
With an ethos firmly built upon exploring a dynamic soundscape and some of the most progressively edifying programming around, the night’s esteemed foundations have seen Leftfoot flourish. Now entering its 16th year, Leftfoot continues to offer an inspired range of shows which create a nexus across a vibrant sound spectrum.
Previous artists include Jamie xx, Bonobo, Mr Scruff b2b Alexander Nut, Mala, Leon Vynehall, Andrew Weatherall and many more, illustrating its depth and range. And now the autumn and winter programming brings together some of the most incredible names in the Midlands.
From seminal crate-dug disco and house from MCDE, Hunee, Bicep and Horse Meat Disco, to the effervescent electronic spectrum covered by Gilles Peterson, Joy Orbison and Move D, over to Ninja Tune’s Max Graef and his jazzier and hip-hop excursions.
On the live side, there’s more from the Ninja Tune label with nu-jazz’s Cinematic Orchestra, Japanese “death-jazz” sextet Soil and Pimp Sessions and the mercurial Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, the Chicago-based band consisting of eight sons of the jazz trumpeter Phil Cohran.
Leftfoot is also embarking on a monthly residency at The Garden Brewery in Zagreb, a brand new venture from the team behind The Garden Festival, with dates confirmed for September 17th, October 15th, November 19th and December 17th.
Adam Regan from Leftfoot said:
Our night is all about musical edification and eclecticism, but also fundamentally is about being a good party too, which we hope is reflected in the bookings we bring to Birmingham.
