Born in 1975, Levon’s life changed dramatically when his parents moved their family to New York in 1981.

Levon's family moved houses in and around NYC from 1981-2010, never more than a few miles from the Twin Towers. The shock and abrupt change of moving house to New York in the 80s are often referred to in Levon’s musical output. He lived on the Lower East Side during his teenage years into his early 20s, which was very influential.

He conveys the way New York’s culture/industry melding affected him so much during his formative years. He cut his teeth working in record shops in and around lower Manhattan over the years, and while working at the Halcyon Record shop in Brooklyn he was one of the key players to create what has come to be known as the "NYC Deep Renaissance".

As a club-goer, he cut his teeth during the city’s HOUSE MUSIC heyday, where a vibrant scene was helping to push that elegant sound forward. Working his way up through landmarks like Sugar Reef (of Sugar Babies fame) or Patricia Field’s “House of Field”, or various record shops in and around lower Manhattan, Levon is part of a generation of fringe artists who received their training direct from New York’s downtown culture. From 2001-2006, he worked at Halcyon record shop in Brooklyn. Halcyon was more than just a record store: it was a place where music aficionados could exchange ideas while listening to the music they love. With a meaty sound system and their friendly, open policy, the shop was a crucial hub for NY’s most passionate dance enthusiasts. Halcyon was a very important place for our global scene during the years they were open.

In 2008 Levon began his label Novel Sound. He started with a bang: a certified hit in the form of the label’s first release, “These Games.” With his funk-based, raw beats laden with space-echo gore, Levon’s dubbed-out sound quickly found supporters from scene veterans as diverse as Craig Richards and Marcel Dettmann. He has released countless influential and innovative records. As a producer, his immense focus and concentration come to a head in multiple tracks that have attained anthem status. These days, Levon is approaching veteran status- and as he puts it “I am hitting my career stride now. The next years will be great because I have made over 50 records at this point, and I am able to combine that with even more unreleased material, to play unique, bespoke sets- sets which only I can offer. The unreleased material is a big element to my un-copied sound.”
