(Here’s looking at you, Theo Parrish.) Yet in other circumstances, a producer may take his or her concept a step further; seeing out the […]

Baddest thing about it he dropped at a small, private wedding party in a Chelsea art gallery ! Mad mad Theo ;)

By: Jim Little Fri, 24 Aug 2012 16:40:16 +0000 The best moment for me was when I took Theo down from the fanboy pedestal I had put him on, and realized that if I like it I’ll buy it, and if I don’t like it I don’t have to. I appreciate that he puts a lot of his creative process out in public, which as see says in the CDR clip, is a luxury you have when you run your own label. Maybe he didn’t intellectualize it like this, but I bet part of him was thinking, “It’s my name on the masthead, bitchez!”

By: Geir Thu, 23 Aug 2012 18:28:02 +0000 And the shangaan remix is rad. I love how Theo delves into contemporary West-African music, am I the only one though? I have seen that single on sale two places at least. The flip on it is good too. That Gene Hunt remix is pretty weak though, just like Theos late night remix of Wilhites “What can you see?”.

By: Geir Thu, 23 Aug 2012 13:21:52 +0000 Incidentally, are those two tracks Theo talk about that he made with cubase (in the interview aybee linked to above) the same as those that people say are shit?

For the record: I dig both “any other style” and “stfu”.

By: mats Tue, 21 Aug 2012 16:48:54 +0000 Oh, and one more thing, I just went to youtube and listened to those remixes some people here were mentioning.
And it kind of telling and a bit of sad.

Theo used to be one of the very best and most exciting remixers, usually completely deconstructing the whole track, and making some totally new piece of music from the parts.
Not only that, they were usually far better, outshining the originals.
These new remixes sound like he was collecting a pay check.

By: mats Tue, 21 Aug 2012 16:22:09 +0000 I think it’s totally fine that Theo is moving in a more left field direction.
Like some other poster said, I listen a lot of other styles besides dance music, and I could care less if it’s danceable or not. As long as it’s good.
And here’s the problem: To me it just seems kinda uninspired.
And it’s not that it’s so “weird” and out there that I don’t get it ’cause I’m not used to it, (at least I don’t think so :)
I think he might have to crank up the quality control a bit.

Seems to me he is in some kind of transitional/growing phase where he want’s to break free from the confines of dance music culture.
And more power to him for doing that, he certainly has the abilities,
but there seems to be some growing pains.
To me his latest releases sounds like the work a frustrated artist,
and in a very weird move he recently released the Sound Signature Sounds Vol. 2 CD with lots of his classic tracks in the in the most god-awful sound quality (yes it’s really bad, give it a listen) .
It’s totally out of phase, and I’m pretty sure it’s deliberate and he’s just giving his CD buying fans the middle finger.
