Level 42 were formed in 1980 and promptly snapped up by Elite Records. It didn’t take long before they began to fulfil early promise, with their debut single Love Meeting Love quickly becoming a classic on the jazz funk club scene. But their slick pop-funk sound marked them out for more than cult success, and it was not long before their growing reputation brought them to the attention of Polydor who released the Level 42 album, which in turn spawned the hit Love Games. Then the underground classic Starchild (recently featured by revered New York DJ Francois K on a mix CD).

The band went on to release 14 albums, had 18 top 40 singles, including Lessons in Love, Something About You, Leaving Me Now, Running in the Family and Hot Water among them, sell out Wembley for weeks and shift in excess of 30 million alums worldwide.

Founding member and front man Mark King’s distinctive slap bass and vocal sound caught the attention and inspired the loyal fanbase that has followed them since, and the bands virtuosity as instrumentalists remains a rare inspiration to aspiring young players the world over.
