VTech Premiere: Bilal’s Levels Directed by Flying Lotus

The Sounds of VTech / Bilal Levels   

"VTech and Plug Research bring you the premiere of Bilal’s newest video “Levels,” directed by producer Flying Lotus aka Steve Ellison. FlyLo makes his directorial debut with this visually stunning video for Bilal that features him alongside Erykah Badu, Thundercat, and Shafiq Husayn (who produced the track).

When FlyLo recently discussed the concept of the video he said, “I originally wanted to keep visual themes with another video from my last LP called ‘mmhmm’ off of my last album. It featured Thundercat as an intergalactic bass player in a super strange world created by ‘Special Problems’. Since Thundercat was part of this song, I thought it could be fun to continue the visual style and feel of this space opera. In the end you have this crazy video made of so much mixed media, geek dreams and lots of love.” This is the third video off of Bilal’s latest album Airtight’s Revenge, which also features the Grammy nominated track “Little One.”
