"Levels" was created in a small basement studio, below Shafiq Husayn's home in Los Angeles. Bilal, Shafiq, & I produced the foundation of what would become the song under a certain creative hypnosis. It seemed as if, before our ears, the synthetic sounds and beeps congealed into a single living and pulsating organism. It would then soon sprout wings, carrying under them an all-encompassing message. "Levels" has since taken a life unto its own, bringing in interpretations from Flying Lotus and Sonnymoon; furthering what may be now called the "Levels Experiment". The remix I provided follows in the tradition of the original song's spirit: an ambitious exploration of sound, space, and emotion; an aviary craft bursting into the embers of a maiden flight." -KenBts.
