Itz A Lot: Stapleton Interview
If you don’t know about Stapleton, then it’s high time you found out. After his previous collaboration with Playaz’ Crystal Clear, he’s been back in the studio to bring you ‘Levels’ with a jokes video to accompany it. I caught up with Stapleton for a quick chat to find out a little bit more…
Joanna Louise Ranson: Levels is a very energetic and fun track. How did you find making the video?
Making the video was a lengthy process, as we had to tie all the elements together, which took time. However filming the video was great fun and we couldn’t have done it without the help of everyone involved.
JLR: Comparisons have been drawn to TC’s Drink ft Jakes. What do you think about that?
TC and Jakes are two very talented artists in their own right, and I have a huge amount of respect for them both. I have no problem being compared to some of the best artists in the game. However I didn’t write the Levels track with Drink in mind. I just do my thing and if people want to compare that’s up to them.
JLR: What are you working on at the moment? Any more collaborations lined up?
Im afraid I cant tell you that! Haha! But I’m always working on music, it’s naturally the first thing on my mind as soon as I wake up. I don’t want to give away too much, but you’ll be hearing alot more from me in the near future, with collaborations coming with various artists across different music genres.
JLR: Where can we see you perform this summer?
You can see me performing at: Renegade Hardware, Therapy Sessions, Playaz Fabric, Subfusion, Intent2Supply, Belgium Festival, Outlook Festival and Sunbeatz Ibiza.
JLR: Anything else you’d like to mention?
Keep your eyes and ears peeled for Pixelfist (PXLFST). I’m one 4th of the crew, and we have some great Dubstep releases coming on Breakbeat Kaos, Sub Human, Boka, Rottun, Skint and Rocstar.
Shout out to everyone supporting what I’m doing, nothing but love straight back at cha!
Levels is out on July 17th from all good record stores.
