My fave mag of the late 90s - 99 to 2000, to be precise - has resurfaced on the 'tinterweb. Level truly lived up to its tag line of all things good introducing me to artists like Cornelius or brands like BAPE long before the mainstream caught a sniff. I still have all 13 editions up in the loft.
I loved the fact that there were no rules... they didn't follow the rigidity of music or fashion mags... they were "a bit of this, a bit of that"... an eclecticism that caught the spirit of my life at that time. I was gutted when it folded... print media was never the same - this was a mag for me that could inform and inspire in ways that no other mag has since. It shaped my tastes in so many ways, be it music or design or even photography.
So this is why I am delighted it lives on... on the 'tinterweb. Check it out.
My thanks to notcot #24,024 for reminding me how good this mag is/was.
