“Levels,” one of our favorite tracks from Bilal’s latest album Airtight’s Revenge, is a brooding experimental track that shows just how far ahead musically Bilal is than the rest of us. We have loved the song ever since a live video of the track started floating around the internet last year. Today, VTech and Plug Research have graced us with a video for the track directed by none other than Flying Lotus. When FlyLo recently discussed the concept of the video he said, “I originally wanted to keep visual themes with another video from my last LP called ‘mmhmm’ off of my last album. It featured Thundercat as an intergalactic bass player in a super strange world created by ‘Special Problems’. Since Thundercat was part of this song, I thought it could be fun to continue the visual style and feel of this space.” Peep the lovely visuals below.
In conjunction with the video, Plug Research is releasing the Levels EP featuring remixes by Flying Lotus, Revivalist favorite Sonnymoon, and KenBts. with Chris “Daddy” Dave on the drums.
