In light of Benji Bâ€™s Deviation tonight at The Basement â€“ 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 â€“ this â€˜Moonliteâ€˜, being one of our favourites.
Theo Parrishâ€™s personal philosophy gives shape and direction to the distinctive sounds that are created:
â€œLove 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.â€
