Theo Parrish Wuddaji Sound Signature I’m a big fan of Theo Parrish. I don’t keep up with anything in dance music at all. Not anymore. And yet I hear Parrish and recognise his, er, footprints instantly. He is techno on the jazz tip – or at least there’s a jazziness about what he’s doing. His […]
Myele Manzanza A Love Requited – The Remixes EP First World Records Maybe there’s something in the fact that Myele Manzanza is a drummer – I mean first and foremost (he’s a DJ, producer, beatmaker, bandleader…) – but there’s just something, outside of an accessibility, that lends his tunes to being remixed.

Theo Parrish American Intelligence Sound Signature Theo Parrish has built a career on the fringes of house music across the last decade, this is his first full-lengther since 2007 – and boy is this full – a two-hour double-album with most of the songs stretching up to 10 minutes, the glorious Be In Yo Self […]
Theo Parrish Footwork Sound Signature Ahead of the full-lengther here’s a new 2-track EP from Theo Parrish.
