The man they call LEVTHAND (aka Levent Canseven) worked and travelled the dancefloors of Europe under the CAN7 moniker and as such delivered flawless remixes & productions for a.o. Bootsy Collins, Randy Crawford, Ricky Martin & Moloko... just to name a few. The CAN7 album Safari Club“ released in 2006 on PEPPERMINT JAM marked a turning point in the life & career of CAN7. Levent was broadening both his horizons as well as the variety of genres he was influenced by. Funk, soul, pop, reggae, jazz has always been the fuel for his taxi...
And so it comes as no surprise that this first LEVTHAND album, is a combination of all of those genres. Always true to where he came from, LEVTHAND gathered an all star line up of close musical friends & like minded individuals to turn his musical vision into a reality: UK pop music legend KIM APPLEBY (of MEL & KIM), MCs/rappers SON OF SLAVES & MISTA GOOD, outstanding vocalists ZOE, LAYGWAN SHARKIE, ELENA LEY & ROMORRIE, trumpeter PATRICK ANTHONY, Washigton DC love poet JEN & downtempo dj colleague GEORGE SOLAR (SOLAR MOON) all contribute to an album that simply wants share’s good vibes with you.
In the backseat, just in time for the sunrise, the taxi drive continues. Nevermind the amount of happy people that are now sharing the cab with you – keep smiling, as LEVTHAND has now turned off the meter, because the last few miles of this ride, are for free.
One more look in the rear view mirror, one more uplifting song booming from the car stereo...you’ve now reached your final destination – Great Journey, cool destination and the right place, at the right time!
