Press Release :
When you listen to Pop Levi's ridiculously-good, utterly classic second album, “Never Never Love,” “Dita Dimone” is the moment when you know you're dealing with something a little special. A low-slung, sexed-up number about having a hex put on you by a girl, Mr Levi himself describes it as “astral-future-soul-hip-pop”. Pop Levi has found his own sound, he has never been this assured.

Now check the remixes. Hot new Big Dada signings Xrabit & DMG$ keep the opulent soul of the original but chuck in a little hip hop attitude and verbals for a silly and uplifting summer rap. LA's Pink Enemy returns after his excellent mix of “Never Never Love” with a loud and intense gltichtronik workout. Dirtlab weigh in with an Alvin-and-the-Chipmunks-go-Hoxton-electroclash scenario. Last up come men-of-the-moment Mumdance & High Rankin who choose to slow the vox and slather in sacks of bass. Funny and intense…

The package is completed by “Semi-Babe,” Pop's personal favourite from the new album, a gorgeous slice of summery nostalgia.

Flamboyant, utterly self-confident, completely his own man and so uninterested in the back and forth of fashion that everything he makes is an instant classic, Pop Levi is in the building. Bow down and give thanks…
