Almost everyone over the age of 30 knows Level 42, so mercilessly catchy are the songs of these British pop icons. 'Running in the Family', 'Love Games', 'Lessons In Love', 'It's Over', 'To Be With You Again', just some of the immense hit oeuvre of Level 42. The band uses jazz, pop and funk to create their out of thousands of recognizable sounds and that sound is still extremely tasty.
Singer and bass player Mark King has grown to be the face of 'the level' since the band was founded in 1979 and is also a musician who is regularly praised by colleagues. King will go down in pop history as an ambassador of slap-bass technique alongside greats like Les Claypool of Primus and funk king Larry Graham. Pushing and plucking the strings creates a superfunky sound that inevitably sets limbs in motion.
