Manchester creative collective Levelz have unleashed a monstrous 13 track mixtape today. It’s well good.
Comprising the city’s sharpest lyrical MC wits – Black Josh, Chimpo, Chunky, Fox, Skittles, Sparkz, T Man, Truthos Mufasa – the Levelz mixtape is a whirlwind narrative of UK reality to a broad soundtrack that flexes from grime to disco by way of hip-hop, UKG and Parliament-style P-funk. Production duties are taken care of by the likes of Biome, Bricks, Metrodome, Chimpo, Sparkz, Skittles, Jonny Dub, Rich Reason and Dub Phizix.
Clearly not letting their recent, tongue-in-cheek kidnap-happy Elastic Artists escapade hold them back, Levelz mixtape LVL11 is the sound of the multifaceted crew compounding their skills and leveling up in a major way.
