Classic Mixes: Theo Parrish “Methods of Movement” (2000)

Soul & Funk

Whether you are a fan Disco, Soul, Funk or Detroit Techno, Deep House the name Theo Parrish should already be familiar. Since the mid-90’s he has been one of the most important artists in contemporary electronic music in the last 20 years.

One of the few truly excellent Producer AND Dj he also finds time to run Sound Signature, the label he founded in 1997.

Methods of Movement” is a mix that is 15 years old, blending in more obscure tracks of old soul, house, Afro-beat, and disco.  We just love these mixes from the “pre-computer” dj era, filled with tiny imperfections but so much more personality and soul than most DJ mixes these days which sound like they  were created and conceptualized in a computer from A to Z.
