At first I thought it was really ironic that Sway’s new single that dropped the 2nd of April had the title ‘Level Up’ and I burst out into a big laugh when I read that it was sold with the following line: “Never one to conform to the norm” with a production by Flux Pavilion. I mean come on, jumping on dubstep _is_ the norm nowadays.
However, ‘Level Up’ is a proper tune, I give Derek da Safo that, he hasn’t sounded this good since he and Rednek dropped that ‘Big Bad Wolf’-track 9 months ago and I reckon ‘Level Up’ has the potential to be Sway’s biggest commercial hit so far esp. the huge drum and bass-oozing remix by Blame featured on the new “Level Up” Reloaded EP release that dropped on 3BEAT during the weekend (cop it off iTunes here).
Besides Kelsey the “Level Up” Reloaded EP features verses from Lady Leshurr, Childish Gambino and JME and remixes by Blame, The Next Room, Slowjob, DCY & BBK as well as the instrumental. Have a listen below:
