“The indie dance revival starts here as Bloc Party and The Long Blondes get rewired by Mylo and Epworth” – NME

Indie-dance is back. Leave Them All Behind brings you a snapshot of the sound that has defined clubland in 2005. Spread over two discs (one mixed / one unmixed) Leave Them All Behind features tracks and remixes by the likes of The Killers, Bloc Party, The Rakes, Erol Alkan, DFA 1979, Tom Vek, Tiga, Phones, The Kills, Optimo and Soulwax, plus top notch moments from new bands like Long Blondes, Cazals and Rubicks.

Action! Now! It’s been said before but let’s say it again-dance music didn’t die, it just cross bred with everything and the kitchen sink and turned into a gnarly, unpredictable little mutt humping the leg of the establishment. It’s the bastard child of floor filling and guitar spilling. Otherwise know as artrock /discopunk/ selfmutilatedmixrock or simply indie rock with a dance element (pick and choose at your leisure). Here the Modular label – the folk that brought us the widescreen cut ‘n’ paste work outs from The Avalanches and current electro pin ups Cut Copy – present the first instalment of rule breakers cutting a stylish rug on dance floors across the world.

The eclecticism spreads far and wide. From Brit Grot rockers (the 9-5 ennui-fuelled hedonism of The Rakes, the blistering London scenesterings of The Cazals, the pelting pseudo politico pop of Bloc Party), to psychotic singer songwriters (the racketeering breakdown of Tom Vek, the twined fury of The Fiery Furnaces and the post-desert rock of The Kills), dancefloor industrialists (Mylo, Erol Alkan and artrock’s producer in residence Paul Epworth-under his “Phones” guise), junkyard drum ‘n’ bassists (Death From Above 1979). Even Vegas superstars The Killers are part of the act and finish the party.

What do they have in common? A shameless, shamanic, boundary-busting attitude that holds their disparate parts together. It’s totally about The Now, the past is just an event on the b-side of the horizon. So get yourself on the nearest dancefloor and be part of the revolution.
