About Level 42

One of the most successful UK bands of all time, Level 42’s impressive discography includes hit tunes from Love Games, Something About You and Hot Water, to Lessons in Love, Running in the Family, Leaving Me Now and many others.

Level 42 is an English jazz-funk band formed on the Isle of Wight in 1979. At the beginning of their career, Level 42 was squarely a jazz-funk fusion band, contemporaries of fellow Brit funk groups like Atmosfear, Light of the World, Incognito, and Beggar & Co. Their music was instantly recognizable from Mark King’s thumb-slap bass technique and associate member Wally Badarou’s synthesizer flourishes.

By the end of the ’80s, however, the band had crossed over to the point where they were often classified as sophistic-pop and dance-rock, equally likely to be placed in the context of Sade and the Style Council – as was any group that made polished, upbeat, danceable pop/rock. The band’s commercial peak came with 1985’s World Machine, but they continued to record and tour sporadically throughout the ’90s and 2000s.
