Levon has enjoyed huge success over the last few years with releases on his Novel Sound label as well Deconstruct, which he runs along with Anthony Parasole who graced our turntables back in December. Tracks such as ‘Woman Is The Devil,’ ‘Man or Mistress.’ and ‘Late Night Jam’ have become anthems in night clubs the world over and any new release that hits the record stores never stays too long on the shelves.
Levon, who now resides in Berlin, gained his knowledge of records in New York where, as a club goer he experienced parties in the likes of Sugar Reef and Pat Field’s Boutique where he began DJing. In 2001 he began working in Halcyon record store in New York where he met his Deconstruct label partner Anthony Parasole. The label’s first release was Levon’s Invisible Bitchslap EP, which was a deep industrial affair, a style which he is now renowned for. His releases always seem to have a distinct toughness to them with subtle touches of brilliance that transform the track on its head (see releases such as ‘Solemn Days’ and ‘Woman Is the Devil.’)
Last year Levon was asked to do a Fabric mix and it turned out to be an education on what the New York house scene has to offer at the minute including unreleased tracks from himself along with tracks from DJ Qu, Anthony Parasole and up and coming Joey Anderson.
Levon’s DJ sets infuse both house and techno and has played everywhere from Berghain in Berlin to Rex Club in Paris to Fabric in London.
As he said himself in an interview with Bodytonic in Dublin,
“I am a scientist working in the field of ass-shakery.”
Music from 11pm in Factory.
