Sticky Sweet Stuff

Another big week in my life with a ton of things going down, so once again the blog has suffered a little, I hope you've all been to check out Little White Earbuds and can forgive the lack of tunes here. I have a huge shipment arriving tomorrow, so expect some crazy new beats in the week but in the mean time, i thought i'd drop u a little Theo Parrish magic.

Theo is ofcourse one of Detroit's finest beat components, having studied fine arts and focused on sound sculpture, he moved on to create some of the most arresting and unique electronic dance music. His mixes, some of which are available on the net are highly saught after, he welds disco & funk onto Detroit deepness with a style that threatens to fall apart at any second but ofcourse it never does. His Ugly edits are also pretty collectable, where-in the man edits disco, funk and fusion tracks for 12" release, the kinda things that get me very hot under the collar, infact I'm still looking for a few of the earlier ones - anyone? So I'm popping up three tracks from Theo; the first is 'Ebonics' off his album 'Sound Signature Sounds', a collection of stuff off his label, the second is 'Sweet Sticky', off his album 'First Floor' on Peacefrog, and lastly a newie called 'Out There' which as it's name suggests is cosmic and far gone. Theo's vibe is unique but recalls the keys heavy styles of Larry Heard and Moodyman, but also the experimental side of Carl Craig, that said it's hard to say he's like anyone really, he injects such an 'honest' soul into everything he does, be it dirty bleepy or more melodic and ultimately he is more often immitated than one to follow others. Always keep your eyes peeled for releases on Sound Signature and anywhere else his name pops up.
