In light of Benji B’s Deviation tonight at The Basement – Gramaphone, with special guests Peanut Butter Wolf and Theo Parrish, we turn to the later of the two super cool and distictive Producers.
Theo Parrish from Detriot is a legendary House/electronic producer with too much soul – this ‘Moonlite‘, being one of our favourites.
Theo Parrish’s personal philosophy gives shape and direction to the distinctive sounds that are created:
“Love of the music should be the driving force of any producer, performer or DJ. Everything else stems from that core, that love. With that love, sampling can become a tribute; An expansion on ideas long forgotten, reconstruction, collage. Using the same understanding openly and respectfully can turn DJing into a spiritual participation. It can turn a few hours of selection into essential history; Necessary listening through movement.”
