Theo Parrish
Thanks To Plastic

Theo Parrish has long been a critic of gentrification within the clubsphere, so it will have irked him mightily when London club Plastic People closed its doors in 2015. During his residency at the Shoreditch dive, the Detroit don’s sets bridged gaps between jazz, house and techno that went ...view item »

Theo Parrish
First Floor - Part 1

Theo Parrish’s 1998 album First Floor has been a staple in house music since it’s release. Nothing has changed. Now being reissued by Peacefrog, it is still fresh as hell and shows us new kids what’s right. If you want to hear how sample based house should be made, look no further, yeah that’s ri...view item »

Theo Parrish
First Floor - Part 2

Second half of Theo Parrish’s highly influential album from 1998 First Floor. Reissued by Peacefrog, the album laid a benchmark for future house music and in all honesty still kicks the hell out of a load of contemporary attempts.

Theo Parrish and Amp Fiddler
Gentrified Love Part 1

Super-producer Theo Parrish here enlists a Detroit legend from a slightly different sphere to collaborate on a track. Amp Fiddler did time in George Clinton’s Parliament / Funkadelic universe, and apparently introduced J Dilla to the MPC(!...view item »

Theo Parrish / Burnt Friedman
Meets Mancingelani / Zinja Hlungwani

This Parrish mix is a right galloping slice of demented pie. On headphones it sounds like about three different tunes are playing, one a slamming euphoric shaangaan rhythm track, one that sounds like Jamal Moss is making his machines sing like woodland sprites and the other sounds like an...view item »

Theo Parrish
Summertime Is Here

Theo Parrish’s 1999 tune Summertime Is Here has been just crying out for a re-press: happily, Sound Signature have obliged. The tune is a perfect mixture of Parrish’s interests, being a genuine jazz tune fitted to the structure of a deep house beat. Beautiful and entrancing stuff from a mast...view item »

Theo Parrish
Roots Revisited

Theo Parrish is a man with a mission. A producer who needs to push boundaries with every release; a musician with the spirit of jazz, soul music and African rhythms flowing through every vein. Each release is different, every record pushes a different set of buttons and this quirky 12" on his prolific Sound Signature label takes the listener on a d...view item »

Theo Parrish
I Can Take It / Sawala Sayale

Always-excellent producer Theo Parrish presents his own take on Matthew Recloose Chicoine’s tune I Can Take It, featuring vocals from Dwele. Both this track and the B-side’s Sawala Sayale are slowly-growing, smoothly-grooving slices of quality business. Originally r...view item »

Feel Free To Be Who You Need To Be

Detroit's finest house/techno vendor, Theo Parrish, has thrown off this 12" comprised of two excellent cuts, for Sound Signature. It offers more of the usual: gnarly basslines that make you giddy with happiness, brooding production that feels comforting and rugged low-end that signals home. Grab it while you can....view item »

Goin' Downstairs Part 1 / Goin' Downstairs Part 2

And lo, Theo Parrish went downstairs. There's a lot of that on this 12", comprised of part one of Goin' Downstairs on the A-side and part two on the flip. Our techno hybrid scientist offers his typical eclectic mix of genres but looks on the dhb side of life in particular. Thank god for Parrish; we were a...view item »

Theo Parrish
Long Walk In Your Sun / Strawberry Dragon

Grrr, its another of those 33/45 records. At least on the A side. The fact that the flip definitely plays right at 33rpm, means I'm gonna judge both tracks at that speed. Now thus isn't a criticism, I quite like this sort of track when it works at both speeds its a kind of bogof offer. So on this basis, Long Walk In Your Sun is either a slow, ja...view item »
