Theo parrish – Parallel Dimensions, Ubiquity

In 2000, Theo Parrish released his second full album, Parallel Dimensions, on his own Sound Signature label. 4 Years later S.A.’s Ubiquity issued the tracks from the CD version, and repackaged the album on a quality 2LP pressing (plus again on CD). It was around this time (2004) that Theo was being picked up a much wider audience and reaching notable acclaim outside the House circles in which he’d already firmly established himself. This could be seen as the album that brought Theo Parrish into many people’s consciousness. This pivotal album has, up to now, been out of print and highly sort after – We are very pleased to announce this full re-issue from Ubiquity Records. TIP!

The 2004 Text Read: Theo Parrish’s early album Parrallel Dimensions finds a proper reissue on Ubiquity. Don’t be fooled because the vinyl version holds different tracks than the original release from a few years ago. This album holds the Ultra rare, but ultra dope ‘Summertime Is Here’ others trks incl. Serengeti Echoes, Reaction To Plastic, So Now What, Nefarious Stranger, Brain, Space Ghosts, Violet Green, Anansies Dances.

Chicago’s radio influences and House artists such as Ron Hardy , Larry Heard, Lil Louis, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Gene Hunt , Mike Dunn, Frankie Knuckles , Walter Get Down Brown and Andre Hatchett, helped to spawn Mr. Parrish’s early career.

He began spinning and producing tracks in 1986, at the age of thirteen… After graduating from the Academy for the Arts, he recieved a scholarship to the Kansas City Art Institute where his interest in music was taken to a new level through his study of sculpture. In 1994, he recieved a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from KCAI with a concentration in Sound Sculpture, a form of orchestrationusing live instruments, looped recordings, the human voice, and numerous other sound generating devices. While in Kansas CIty, Theo continued to impact and be impacted by dance music, helping to bring a dormant underground music scene to life. In 1994, Theo Parrish moved to Michigan where he became heavily involved in Detroit’s underground music scene. Producing music and delivering his unique and dynamic sets in venues throughout the Detroit and surrounding areas, as well as abroad he has gained the attention and respect of dj’s, producers, listeners and dnancers worldwide.
