After years of learning the art of DJ’ing from his older brother, a 13 year old Levela wanted to know how the tracks were made so he tried his hand at production. Spending each and every waking minute in the studio, Levela began to build a large back catalogue of tracks that he believed were good enough quality to release to the public. So he sent several demo CDs & e-mails to a number of labels for some feedback. Soon after this, DJ Phantasy from Easy Records spotted the young talent and invited him to work exclusively with his label. For 5 years, DJ Phantasy became like a mentor to Levela by giving him production tips and guiding him into the D’n’B scene by setting up collaborations with high profile names like Skibadee, Funsta and Harry Shotta to name a few. This brought about Levela’s debut 12″ on Easy Records “Dubstyle (Ft MC Funsta)” & “Stamina” followed by the hugely successful 5 track “Stark Ravin’ Mad EP” which topped a number of different download charts. Other releases throughout this time include his collaborations with Dub Zero entitled “Overdrive” & “Messy” which also reached no 1 on various online download stores.
In 2010, the dubstep A-Lister Datsik head hunted Levela and suggested they work together on a few projects which brought around the highly anticipated “Levela Drumstep Remix” of Datsik’s biggest track to date, “Firepower”. This track was supported by Skrillex, Excision, Datsik, Downlink and many others before being released on Excision’s label Rottun Records in April 2011. More recently, Levela has remixed for Aphrodite, Benny Page, Dope Ammo, Annix, & more. Now with Levela’s YouTube track uploads totaling well over a million views, there’s no surprise he has high studio demands, a busy DJ diary, remix offers flying in and a Europe wide Multi-Function tour in the making.More Information Facebook Event Find Prepaid Parking
