In an industry that is ever changing and developing, for the last decade there has been a constant that has become unmistakable and that is the immaculate talent of Leftwing : Kody.
Joining forces back in 2012, Jon and Chris have created a partnership many could only dream of. Their individual strengths have combined to create a musical pairing that continually produces tracks that head up the charts, echo across nightclub dancefloors and become the go to addition for many DJ’s setlist.
In their first year on the circuit they had already been clocked by the media heavyweights. with the likes of Mixmag and DJ Mag, both naming them in the ‘ones to watch’ and DJ Mag going one step further by nominating for ‘Best Break Through DJ in the best of british awards. many of their compatriots might have rested on their laurels but Leftwing : Kody have continued to strive for bigger and better year on year.
When it comes to their studio output, the discography reads like a tracklist for the last decade in dance music. Their music has been integral and seen them feature on iconic labels such as Circus, Spinnin, Desolat, Relief, Moon Harbour, Sola, Toolroom, Solid Grooves, Truesoul, Columbia, Universal, Ultra and their own hugely successful imprint ‘lost’.
The main element that really makes Leftwing : Kody stand out from many of their peers is their ability to embrace and incorporate influences from a plethora of genres. Although their sound is instantly recognisable, it’s not conformist and they are more than happy, and proud, to throw a few unexpected extras to their releases. this all collects together to create the ‘je ne sais quoi’ behind their productions.
There’s so many notable and chart topping tracks to mention them all but most recently is the smash hit on Toolroom – ‘I Feel It’ which has racked up over 30 million plays on Spotify, alongside another big talker out on the same label titled ‘Without You’ which has already hit 3.5million and continues to rise! there’s been huge hitters on Circus Records, Spinnin’ and Musical Freedom as well as massively supported remixes for the likes of Mabel, MK, Duke Dumont, Oliver Heldens and Eli & Fur.
