Paul Levy began his career DJing as General Levy, working his way through Vigilante, Java and Robbo Ranx's Tipatone sound systems. His very first release was for Robbo's Muzik Street label in 1988, and "New Cockatoo" proved to be something quite different, as Levy's freshness, youth and enthusiasm hiccuped out of every groove. His next move was at south London where Fashion Records' resident engineer, Gussie P, released his debut album "Double Trouble", which also featured Jamaican star Capleton. His popularity was increased by numerous "specials" for sound systems and he finally came to the public's attention in a big way with "Original Length & Strength" on Fashion Records. His next trio of releases for Fashion, "Heat", "Breeze" and "The Wig" established him as the British DJ to watch. His branching out with Justice Records for some hip-hop-based recordings further broadened his appeal, and the late 1992 long-playing release for Fashion of "The Wickeder General" was an immediate runaway success. His talent and personality was soon spotted by the majors (especially with all the frantic interest in ragga in the spring of 1993), and Ffrr Records clinched the big contract. He then gained worldwide fame for his jungle hit "Incredible". 2005 sees the mighty General Levy back on the track with the release of this 7" single on the London based "Eclectic Breaks" label. This single - a foretaste of Levy's forthcoming album - brings us a solid Dancehall Remix of General Levy's club sizzler "Sugarcane" featuring long time Maxi Priest and Barrington Levy collaborator, Pinky Lou. Remixed by Bigger and Marga Man, hot out of Fifth St, Trench Town, Jamaica, we're treated to a very infectious and entertaining dancefloor filler. Levy delivers his lyrics in his well known fast chatting style over the "Pop Da Bockle" riddim, which easily can become one of the hottest riddims of 2005. Get it while you can, because this is a very limited 7" release.Teacher & Mr. T.
