Welcome To Manchester: A Brief Introduction to ‘LEVELZ’

LEVELZ are Manchester’s newest and freshest export. Consisting of Biome, Black Josh, Bricks, Chimpo, Chunky, Dub Phizix, Fox, Jonny Dub, Metrodome, Rich Reason, Skittles, Sparkz, Truthos Mufasa & T-Man; this is definitely a collective group of the best the North West has to offer, and you can catch them taking over Room 1 of Concorde 2 this Thursday night in collaboration with Pear Shaped Apparel’s ’Social Club’.

As individual artists the collective have produced some of the most forward-thinking music to surface in recent years;

Black Josh – Escape Music

Chimpo – Buzzin Ft. Dub Phizix & Skeptical

My Nu Leng – Masterplan Ft. Fox

Thelem – Bring Me Down Ft. T-Man

A pretty spot-on comparison of “Wu-Tang meets the Happy Mondays” summarises the group in a nutshell. They carry the thrown for the old values of ‘Madchester’ whilst collaborating on some of the most exciting music we have come across in the last few years. Their collective release ‘LVL 07’ at the end of 2014 has solidified them as a serious problem for music as well as the admittedly ‘London-centric’ scene in which they find themselves being compared too most of the time. Giving London a real taste of Mancunian culture LEVELZ are definitely one too watch for the year ahead. Rumours of collective album also on the cards so keep your ears to the ground.

• Catch LEVELZ on Thursday 21st at Concorde 2 in collaboration with Pear Shaped Apparel’s Social Club.
