Levon Vincent

Dance Music

Fresh new Levon and it's sounding totally RADICAL. Three tracks that instantly scream of the iconic producer and should keenly demonstrate why he means so much to his adoring fans.

Confidently tip-toeing into the deepest realms techno, whilst being so delicately constructed that next to some of the more boisterous counterparts of the genre, Levon's tracks look like fragile stained glass paintings. Whether it's the anthemic piano licks coupled with the wooden bass wobbly of A1, the Vincent-Reichian hybrid of B1 (a familiar formula throughout the Novel Sounds...), or the classic Vincentian techno of B2 - with his trademark buzzy leads, cavernous kick and pitch black throb - this is a truly high quality addition to the Novel Sound catalogue. Existing fans will have already added this to their basket before getting this far, so the rest of you'll have to move quick if you wanna catch up. Limited copies.

Matt says: Classic Vincentian vibes here on his feverishly collected Novel Sound imprint. It doesn't get more typically Levon sounding than this. Masterful!

NEW LEVON! annnnd it's a doozy! Our favourite New Jersian seems to be slap bang in the midst of another career purple patch as the 23rd Novel Sound displays a grasp of modern techno few can comete with. Wigged-out n wobbly, "The Sound Of People Moving" introduces itself under a canopy of elastic rhythms and fizzing hats; while occasionally a typically Vincentian melodiy will creep into focus. The perfect balance of discord, harmony and nightclub physics, it'll lock the floor into a powerful electronic hypnosis.

"Fricatives" punctuating kick and spiralling hi-hat patterns repeat against a slow tectonic groan and tecnoid vox loop; a disorientating and noxious late night affair that, like the first track, will impress, confuse and oblitorate any modern dancing space

Levon closes of 2018 still imperetive as ever. Do not miss this one folks!

Matt says: Bad-ass trax for the techno firm here, Levon's lost none of the pizzazz and inventiveness as NS-23 is added to one of the label's many highlights. Essential!

Two killer cuts from the recent Levon album re-pressed for our pleasure - and on a full side of wax each for maximum fidelity! "Kissing" is the slow, steady, smoke and strobe flicker; a powerful, tectonic sway pushes things forwards as the thick, heady atmosphere engulfs the floor; one simple strobe flash signaling it's separate kick drum beat. Like the beating heart of the dancefloor enshrined in fog. "Only Good Things" is a technoid glider, peppered with modular perc artifacts as a hi-tek bassline wraps itself around angelic pad stabs and suspended strings. Both tracks epitomize the NJ producer's idiosyncratic style at the top of his game; amazing stuff do not sleep!

Matt says: Couple of nice tunes off Levon's last album made available to those who might have missed it. Couple more on the way too so keep those peepers peeled.

Long term friend and cohort of Leven Vincent, Eric Maltz is the latest artist to grace the hallowed Novel Sound. Hailing from New York City, and now residing in Berlin, his life alongside the label honcho has included a long stint in Halcyon Records' (Brooklyn) and a dynamic series of parties that the pair threw in and around the area. A debut album that takes on the industrialized, technoid aesthetic of Novel Sound and injects it with a kind of cybernetic emotion that makes it glisten like a neutron star. From the opener, "Drone Y Besa" which hints at its cyborg-pop sensibilities to the inter-planetary bounce of "Time". "All The Things" sends shatter-like ripples through the space time, as another yearning vocal part gets shrouded in dark matter and red shift. "Symphony At Dawn" sees the second disc introduced with style and aplomb, a cosmic arpeggio pushed ever-outward into the outer cosmos and met with emotion-riddled strings and sweeping mainframe bursts. One hell of a ride this one folks, a more than competent addition to the flawless NS catalogue.
