MCMI REPORT: LEVELS – A PLACE (VIDEO)

A Band, A Movement, A Musical Journey, An Experience

A PLACE is the 1st single off of the debut album LEVELS, which is also the name of the band, lead by frontman Keith “WildChild” Middleton, along with Aaron Marcellus on vocals, guitarist Luca “Mack” Marcias, Jacopo “Snow” Mazza on Keyboards. The group is international, one from NY, one from Atlanta and two from Italy and have been performing on stages in Europe, Japan and the US, the past couple of years, writing, performing and testing out songs for this album. The four artists – all on different musical paths, from Rock to Funk, to Hip Hop, to R&B, to Jazz and Classical – have arrived at the same destination – LEVELS!

A PLACE, seems at first a simple love song “There’s no place that I would rather be … right here with you, my dear, beside me…” but it actually is a more complex and textured interpretation of Adam and Eve as our common ancestor, what binds all mankind in love and unity. Delving into the multi dynamic layers of Love, the international super group, LEVELS, explore the musical nuances of Hip-Hop, Neo Soul, Jazz, Pop, R&B, Funk, Afrobeat, and Latin genres. These diverse styles help to fully articulate the time traveling journey of Adam as he searches for his soulmate Eve after being exiled from paradise.

 

Keith explains “They say the legend of Adam and Eve is written in the stars. If you look closely, you may notice the two were cast out of paradise as punishment for eating an apple from the Forbidden Tree of Truth. Now both mortal, Adam vows to Eve that he will always find her in their next lives. A secret he learned from his one bite of the apple. In present day, it is written that Adam will find Eve at one of his shows with his band LEVELS.”

 

This album is the journey that we all share, reflecting life as Adam or Eve. The concept of belief in true love, faith you will find it, the pursuit of happiness the struggle of adversity subsequent loss and sometimes, satisfying triumph. Life is full of diversity and dynamics, and so is this album. A PLACE is your first taste of the Apple of Truth that is on its way.

DIRTBAG DAN: CADDY PH IMMORTAL (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

West Coast rapper / battler / comedian Dirtbag Dan has a great video out for “Caddy PH Immortal” a memorial for Robert “PH” Diaz and Robert “Cadalack Ron” Paulson, two of Dan’s Hip Hop peers who the world lost too soon.  Dirtbag battled both MC’s, Ron for Grind Time Now and PH for PoisonPenTV/URL, but behind the scenes they were friends and all three respected each other’s talents.

DIRTBAG DAN: CADDY PH IMMORTAL (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

The video has Dan skateboarding thoughout Los Angeles lamenting about his friends and how their musical legacies not only immortalized them, but made him realize that he has wasted a lot of time (haven’t we all?) and it’s a race against the clock to get his music out and accomplish his life’s goals. Clips of Cadalack and PH, a beautiful mural of Ron and a street sign that reads “Robert ‘PH’ Diaz Way” bring the spirits of both Roberts into the video, which was directed by Kyle Gray and filmed by Jeff Hammerton. The song was produced by Rey Resurreccion, mixed and Mastered by Chris Paxton at Nexus Audio

Dirtbag Dan explained to HipHopDX about the personal significance of making this video:

“Caddy and PH had a lot more in common than most would assume. They were both battle rappers, but they were also respected musicians who personified the places they came from. They inspired. They left a legacy. To me, they’re immortal now. That’s what I wanted to write about.”

CADDY PH IMMORTAL by Dirtbag Dan (feat. Ichy the Killer) is available on itunes and on the artists BandCamp page. The full project 3RTYS drops 8/30/18.
