Levon Vincent is a DJ, producer, owner of Novel Sound and co-owner of Deconstruct Record Label. Born in Houston, Texas and raised on the East Coast he now calls Berlin home. His unique style of NY house music has been cited as one of the main advocates for the house music renaissance taking place in New York at the moment. Working his way up through landmarks like Sugar Reef (of Sugar Babies fame) or Pat Fieldâ€™s Boutique, and record stores such as Kimâ€™s, Tower, and Music Exchange, Levon joined a long, proud lineage of fringe arts based around New Yorkâ€™s downtown. Ten years later, in 2001, he began to work at the legendary Halcyon record shop in Brooklyn where he met his future Deconstruct label partner Anthony Parasole, as well as DJ Jus-Ed; who subsequently went on to start the Underground Quality label - the label that has introduced their homegrown sounds to a global audience. Even artists from further a-field like Nina Kraviz or Anton Zap have UQ to thank for first promoting them.
In 2008 Levon began his own label, Novel Sound. The first EP release â€˜These Gamesâ€™ was a hit and featured a track by Jus-Ed. With his industrial beats, Levonâ€™s dubbed-out sound quickly found him support from scene veterans like Craig Richards and Berghainâ€™s Marcel Dettmann.
To date, Levon has played at notorious clubs such as Fabric, Rex Club, Berghain, and of course the infamous Underground Quality party series at the now defunct Tape Club and as a producer heâ€™s released on Novel Sound, Deconstruct, Ostgut Ton, More Music, Underground Quality and mnml ssgs.
