Theo Parrish – This Is For You (SS078)

A killer new Theo Parrish record is on its way on Sound Signature and it’s up there with the best things he’s released for a long time. No details on the release date just yet but you can hear it in the brilliant new RA Podcast from Sound Signature family member Nicole Misha. Jump to the 21m mark to hear the track in all its glory. Any clues on the vocalist?

The Detroit label feels like it’s in a real hot streak after stunning recent releases from Kemit, Carl McIntosh and Kai Alce’s “Digital Love” as well as the recent Theo record – featuring a ton of guest musicians including members of Melbourne’s Hiatus Kaiyote – “What You Wanna Ask For“.

The 14 Best Theo Parrish Tracks

“Music moves in such a way you can’t really talk about an artist using one set of adjectives, because that would mean you’ve listened to all of their works; that would mean you’d come to a consensus about what that artist’s work does.” — Theo Parrish

He’s right.

We’ve listened to a lot of Theo Parrish records. If we had to describe his sound it would be that “it sounds like Theo Parrish”. Maybe it’s something in the equipment he uses, the records he’s sampling or something otherworldly. You often hear people refer to his sound as “raw”, but as this interview covers, he also does “nice”.

The Motor City producer has released on some of the best underground labels in the world such as Third Ear and Peacefrog Records, and worked with producers both big and small including Carl Craig, Amp Fiddler and Duminie Deporres, as well as his fellow 3 Chairs members: Rick Wilhite, Moodymann and Marcellus Pittman. To add to this he’s produced several killer albums including ‘Parallel Dimensions’ and ‘American Intelligence’. There is a lot to dig through.

One things for sure, he has produced some magical records over the last 20 years and here’s what we consider to be some of his more dancefloor-friendly highlights.
