New Music Friday: LEVi
We're back with another #NewMusicFriday! We linked up with the MC, singer-songwriter on the London scene, LEVi. Not one to put down the pen, LEVi is a compulsive songwriter. He's just brought the heat with his sultry, inescapable flow on his new single 'What You Want'. The track is produced by Yvng Face, who worked with LEVi on his previous two singles, ‘Strongback’ and ‘Touch Di Road’. The track serves as the next taste of his forthcoming Daaanger mixtape.
We caught up at the Stööki studio in London to learn more about LEVi, including his inspirations and future projects... 👀

4. How would you describe your sound?
5. What are some of your fashion and style influences?
My first inspiration fashion wise definitely stems from Jamaican soundsystem and dancehall culture. That along with Rastafari culture all embrace proud authenticity but with a pristine and sharp look which I think is my vibe. Growing up I also saw my Uncles and older cousins go garage raving in the 90s and early 2000s, I saw them looking the part with the moschino and the gucci leather loafers etc so that along with MTV influenced my taste in fashion. Dancehall Rap and Garage.
