#029 Levon Vincent

Prince taught us all the importance of controlling your own music, and that is a concept which this week's guest has taken to heart over the course of his career. A label-owner, publisher, and spinner of DJ sets featuring exclusively his own material, Levon Vincent is a producer's producer and a proper hero of the underground.

In this conversation we get pretty deep into his roots in Newark and New York City, covering his formative musical years in the late 80s, through his experiences as an opening DJ at the legendary Limelight club, through to the Giuliani era which brought New York clubbing to an abrupt halt.

We also discuss topics including the life-affirming experience of Berghain, the difficulty of coming up with original titles (or even DJ names), and the importance of sound checks.

This week 'OneZeroFive', the second part of my collaboration with Bakongo aka Roska is out on Hotflush, also featuring a remix of 'Over Again' by Hassan Abou Alam.

We have also announced a Hotflush label event at Æden in Berlin on 2 Sept... Get involved!
