🔴 CONTENTS — INSIDE 5 MAG #210:
🔴 Levon Vincent: Sacred Geometry. According to its creator the story behind Levon Vincent’s latest album, Sacred Geometry, is not a complicated one. “2023 is about no narratives for me,” he says. “Just tracks. I am just making tracks for DJs.” 5 Mag spoke to Levon about the making of his latest record and all of the others.
🔴 The Cover Mix: One A. This issue’s cover mix from Gehno Aviance, a DJ and producer with, deep, deep roots in America’s electronic music scene.
🔴 Remembering Teri Bristol. Every city should have their own Teri Bristol. Chicago was lucky, and selfish, because kept her for ourselves.
