Kyle Watson invites us to get on his level as he dishes out the festive vibes that will get us through, one day at a time.
“My Level” begins with rattling gritty detail instantly frying my brain and setting me on a trajectory to loony town. That might sound a little bit intense but if I am going to be completely honest, I expect nothing less from the quirky house style that Watson is known for. Within the first minute and a half, the track opens up to a piercing crescendo of sound that literally vibrates my body from my head all the way to my toes! And then things go absolutely sideways!
When the low octave bassline kicks in, I proceed to grind, dip, sway, and swing to my heart’s content. My attention never wavers as I am enamored by the unique detail shifts throughout the entirety of the track. And I officially join Kyle Watson on his level of funk as the inclusion of some well-placed horn blasts help me find the ultimate groove. In fact, I am just going to outright say that this track has it all. Overflowing energy, classy brass detail, a bounce that is all-consuming, and a wacky character that makes me feel completely alive!
