levon vincent - fabric 63: Levon Vincent
House music's most resolute standard bearer has assembled a prime selection of 15 cuts from his New York-orbiting inner circle for Fabric's 63rd mix. After a decade of studious production and practice, Levon has established himself as one of the most respected artists in his arena. An uncompromising (bordering on neurotic) approach to analog values - from the first note or beat to the mastering process - coupled with innate respect for dance music and pure, tactile sonic fidelities, have made his productions, labels (Novel Sound, and Deconstruct with Anthony Parasole) and DJ sets a benchmark for heavyweight House music. Peppered with no less than seven of his impeccable tracks, his 1st commercially available mix also features music by like-minded producers rooted in New York's House scene, from relative newcomer Joey Anderson with his tentative opening salvo 'Earth Calls' and the locked-in shuffle of 'Hyrdrine', to Sequencias label head JM De Frias' Salsa-tripper 'Intrinsic Motivation', to DJ Qu and his hypnotic churner 'Times Like This', and two from Fred P's Black Jazz Consortium 'Blacklight' and 'Far Away', plus Anthony Parasole's burly 'Tyson'. But the stars of the mix are Vincent's own productions, the indomitable 'Double Jointed Sex Freak II', and a ruck of unreleased ish like the exquisite 'Rainstorm II', the pensive 'Stereo Systems' and the magnificent 'Fear'. But most crucially, it's the reserved pacing, deft programming and sensually dark, yet life-affirming vibe which pumps deep through this mix that makes it such an essential listen for any self-respecting House heads.
