[GIG] Triptych: Theo Parrish + Funky Transport @ Snafu


Recommended Posts

Theo Parrish

A critical fixture in Detroits cultural fabric, Theo Parrish is synonymous with the citys celebrated third-wave techno establishment, alongside Triptych alumnus Moodymann. Equally fted for his underground house productions and his thunderous DJ sets, Parrish continues to defy and classify the dance music ambit. His latest album, Sound Sculptures Vol. 1, was recently crowned Album of the Year at Gilles Petersons Worldwide Awards.

Born in Washington and raised in Chicago, Parrishs outstanding analysis of the Michigan sound is enlightened by a passion that encapsulates Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Jimi Hendrix, Nina Simone, Bob Marley and Parrishs own uncle: jazz musician Dexter Sims.

Nurtured by house music heavyweights Frankie Knuckles, Lil Louis and Farley Jackmaster Funk and a man whose live appearances are extremely few and far between Parrish is lauded for his warm, unhurried, intricate creations that embrace the hiatus between techno and soul: between man and machine.

Funky Transport

Flygaric Tracks Iain McPherson and James Sissons aka Aberdeen deep house groove dudes Funky Transport are marvellous, must-see dance-floor bleep-freaks whose recent sojourns have included appearances with Louie Vega, Derrick Carter and Crazy P.
