Love Technique/Air Raid
A1) Love Technique
B1) Air Raid
Texas born Levon was first exposed to electronic music when his family moved to Times Square in New York when he was 8. Breakdancing was huge, breakin on every corner, dogs barking in Man Parrish's 'Hip Hop Be Bop Don't Stop,' loud as hell on 42 & Broadway. His first beak came 11 years later, when as a fledgling DJ, he was fortunate enough to spend a couple years with two huge techno talents, DJ Prozac (limelite) and John Selway as roommates at college.
For the last 14 years he has DJ'd at countless parties and nightclubs in NYC, too numerous too mention. He also works at Halcyon records in Brookyln, and runs his own label, More Music NY.
Love Technique is proper Acid House music, a homage to Adonis Grooves, coupled with new school sound design techniques. On the flip, Air Raid is a stipped down, minimal landscape that builds up the tension and doesn’t let go. A truly stunning EP.
