Levon Vincent – Enchanted Cosmos [NS-36]

VINCENT, Levon - Enchanted Cosmos

Lately, Levon Vincent has begun to serve up especially long tracks. At the start of the year, he delivered the 14-minute techno opus ‘Cyclops Trx’, following it up with two more stretched-out dancefloor workouts (‘Riding Alongside The Ocean’ and ‘So Good’). He’s at it again on ‘Enchanted Cosmos’, a 13-minute slab of deep space techno in which echoing, dub techno style riffs ride a sweaty drum machine rhythm and a driving, acidic bassline. Turn to side B and you’ll find the ‘Reprise’ mix, a stripped-back and even more mind-altering interpretation to adds glacial synth sounds and wilder acid lines to the long-serving producer’s heavy techno beats.

Levon Vincent & Marcel Dettman – NS 10 T Rex Edition [NS010]

VINCENT, Levon/MARCEL DETTMANN - NS 10 T Rex Edition

New Novel Sound. “Fear” has been an in-demand since it was featured on his Fabric mix back in 2012, and remains one of Vincent’s most striking compositions – a spacey, melancholic mixture of classic Detroit influences, unfussy deep house beats and new wave-era synth and bass touches. The flip boasts a more recent collaboration between Vincent and Marcel Dettmann, which is equally as tasty. “Vengeance” is synthesizer-heavy and intergalactic in design, with EBM style motifs and tumbling, atmospheric melodies riding a similarly no-nonsense groove.

Levon Vincent – Levon Vincent [NS009] FREE DOWNLOAD

Levon Vincent chose to announce the release of his long-await debut album by drip-feeding information on social media. The subsequent meltdown among the online techno community may have been amusing to watch, but is testament to the Berlin-based New Yorker’s impact over the last 10 years. Typically, concrete info has remained thin on the ground aside from the fact it stretches across some four slabs of vinyl and features a homage to Levon’s cat Mona. Just before the physical copies were due for release, Vincent elected to give out the 11 track LP digitally for free so it’s highly likely you know how it sounds already. If you are a true advocate of his output you’ll want this quadruple wax edition! Next-level house and techno dedicated to the “ugly ducklings of the world”!

Levon Vincent – Impressions Of A Rainstorm [NS006]

VINCENT, Levon - Impressions Of A Rainstorm EP

New Levon Vincent on the cultishly adored Novel Sound label. The A-side is a modern tribal House masterpiece, shaking the drums into a mammoth, speaker-owning subbass while layers of star-screaming synths expand and envelope your mind with jaw-dropping psychedelic dynamism. Then there’s the B-side. ‘Revs/Cost’ opens the account with steppin’ snare punctuations and rib crushing subs before a lashing dub chord rifles thru the whole thing, syncing with a flooded subbass to spine-chilling effect. For measure there’s also the staggering ‘Pivotal Moments In Life’, a life-affirming piece of House music if we’ve ever heard one.
