Levon Vincent is an awesome DJ and producer. Some of his earlier tracks like "Love Technique" got me really into the brand of old-school revivalist house music that he and the cohorts represented on the tracklist offer. Unlike many DJs these days he really cares about the craft. One thing you'll notice about this mix is that you can actually hear the tracks being mixed together, i.e. you'll hear the new track's elements coming in as the older track fades. This is an anomaly among the young laptop DJs who automatically blend their Beatport mp3s. You only need to look at some of the features and reviews on Resident Advisor to see the type of respect this guy earns among underground dance music fans, and for good reason.
That being said, I pretty much hated this mix. While I appreciated the effort he put into some of the blends, the flow of the mix was often beguiling. There was very little sense of narrative or drama. After a fairly engaging opening 15 minutes, it feels like he starts to let every track run over by a good couple of minutes. That would be fine if the tracks themselves were engaging, but by and large they are not. Quite a few sound like throw-away b-sides, or stripped down DJ tools. The overall sound of the mix is cold, mechanical and bare. The best way I can describe it is like industrial techno, but slowed down to a house tempo. I've given this mix repeated listens in different types of settings (driving, home listening and running at the gym) and it just doesn't do it for me in any of them. There are a few nice tracks, and a few moments where you can hear why Levon is a master DJ (his use of EQ, etc.), but even as a fan of his previous work I can't really recommend this one.
