Theo Parrish is an outlier’s outlier in the realm of tech-house DJs and producers. The Detroit-based maverick’s productions bear an un-grid-like organic quality that keeps them loose-limbed, mesmerizing, and groovy as fuck, and as danceable as they are adventurous. A track on his outstanding 1998 album First Floor, “Paradise Architects,” serves as a job description for what Parrish does in the studio. The respect Parrish has earned for his recordings extends to his deck skills and selections. Wisely, the Research crew are giving him six hours to manifest his minimalist magic.
