LEVELZ – Reach For The Sky (LVL38)
Manchesters finest LEVELZ come with the heat again with the sublime Reach For The Sky. This latest sees the multitude of rhymes that we have come to expect from the group coming correct again over a mellow and sun kissed beat courtesy of Metrodome, Bricks and Skittles that foregoes drums in favour of a shimmering set of bass courtesy of Ben Price.
MCs Fox, Skittles (pulling double duties on the track), Chunky, T-Man and Truthos Mufasa trade rhymes with the ease we have come to expect from the LEVELZ crew and all hit hard with Mufasas closing verse perhaps the favourite if we were forced to choose (hearing him spit “What a mad day, what a mad life, I’m a enjoy this as if it’s bath time” as well as finishing by mentioning kumquat compote” in a rhyme is inspired, although all are fire and work in tandem with the shimmering beat. Add to this an inspiring chorus that will be stuck your head for an age and you have the perfect ingredients for a summer banger.
With a video filmed on their recent tour of India acting as a perfect counterpart for the tracks focussed but chilled out and sunny vibes, Reach For The Sky is perfect anthem for these summer months and beyond.
