Theo Parrish Intro:
Love of the music should be the driving force of any producer, perfomer or dj. Everything else stems from that core, that love. With that love, sampling can become a tribute, an expansion on ideas long fogotten, reconsttruction, collage. Using this same understanding openly & respectfully , can turn djing into spiritual participation. It can turn a few hours of selection into essential history. Neccesary listening through movement.
This personal philosophy gives shape and direction to the distinctive sounds that are created by Theo Parrish
