General Levy is an English ragga singjay, regularly employed on studio tracks by drum and bass DJs. He is best known for the track “Incredible” which he recorded with M-Beat. A remixed version reached number 8 in the UK Singles Chart in 1994. His first major releases were released by the independent record label Fashion Records, who signed a distribution deal with London Records for the re-releases of the tracks he has recorded. His tracks were hits on the underground dancehall scene and are still on top of the jungle/dancehall audience’s list.
