Detroit DJ/producer Theo Parrish – Footwork & Live Euro Tour in July!
Just sat in on a lovely and deep interview in the Brownwood basement between Gilles Peterson and Detroit innovator Theo Parrish.
The organic-sounding but machine-based dance music of Theo Parrish incorporates live instruments, human voices and looped recordings and we can now give thanks he’s about to play a live set with a full band for the first time since his Rotating Assembly fleetingly hit the road a decade ago.
The band – featuring Theo on beats and keys, supa-don soul ‘n’ funk singer songwriter Amp Fiddler on keys, Akwasi Mensah on bass), Duminie DePorres on electric guitar and Myele Manzanza on drums plus a female vocalist! – will be revisiting both old and new Sound Signature classics. He’s also got two wikkid footwork steppers with him to elevate the art of dance. Going to be smoking! Got to be there!
