- Footwork / Tympanic Warfare by Theo Parrish
Funky ass shit from Detroit’s Theo Parrish back on his on Signature Sound label with the stonking ‘Footwork’. From the opening hi-hats and bassline it’s immediately clear this is one of Theo Parrish’s productions, his distinctive raw funky and soulful sound all over this record, paying tribute to the footwork dance craze that isn’t just isolated to Chicago but Detroit have their own thing and they call it Jit; as documented by Underground Resistance with their ‘Foot Wars’ EP.
Do check out the ‘Footwork’ video where you can observe the impressive creative shuffling of feet along to this is great party track. The bassline is pure Parrish infectious funk, there’s a “Let me see your footwork” vocal and a sort of mournful string. As it all builds, the rhythms just call your body to move. You can’t beat the joys of dancing and this tune is bound to be responsible for some of that kind of activity over the summer. This is great universal party music that summons man, woman and child to get their groove on. Oh the fun to be had bobbing about to this.
Over on the flip is a wicked deeper tune called ‘Tympanic Warfare’ which has a melancholy, mystical quality to it in a similar vibe to a lot of Joey Anderson’s productions. Great 12” this, I reckon well worth grabbing, especially if you enjoyed his recent ‘71st And Exchange Used To Be...’ 12" with both records having rhythmic common ground as well as Parrish's distinctive warm sound pallate.
