Outstanding EP from up-and-coming Detroit talent. Don’t miss it.
Theo Parrish — ‘Did a song at Omar’s studio and he had the raw sounds picked out… Spacestation is the result. New vocal talent, Danny Banks makes his presence felt on Going Thru Changes.’
Lil Louis mashed into Amerie, Nice And Slow into One Thing, on limited-edition, one-sided red vinyl.
Brilliant new Theo. Detroit gone clear — probed and elasticated to another level. Don’t miss this brooding stomper, it’s killer.
Inaugurating TP’s new label — hard-grooving soul music, rapturous and jazzy, with singers Andrew ‘Flowers’ Ashong and Eska, guitarist David Okumu, the one-and-only Tony Allen, and himself producing, playing synths.
More live, organic, cosmic house from the master for the fiftieth SS. Slow-burning electro-boogie — synths over a clicking, swaying, volatile beat — and a more uptempo jazz trip, with dusty, wacked-out breaks.
TP’s is an uglier-than-ugly edit, with no let-up for thirteen minutes, layered and shot with synth washes, bleeps and alarms, galloping drums, clattering percussion; Burnt’s mix is more chilled, lithe, dubwise.
Epic, spiritual jazz-funk from the Los Angeleno, revived by Theo Parrish. Dego and Akwasi Mensah wig out with TP on the fuel-injected, flip-side overhaul, propelling the tune left of Mo Wax and into the light.
