DEEP DETROIT HOUSE: Theo Parrish: Black Music


Love the amount of SOUL running right through most music I hear from Detroit, whether it be the House, Funk or Hip Hop there always seems to be a bit if Motown when cats like Theo Parish touch a record.

Track of the Weekend: Inner City – Goodlife (1988) (soulful house classic)


Good Life“, the seminal Detroit house classic originally released way back in 1988 still sounded funky as hell on that massive sound system at the Civic Underground last night.

Big ups to Terrence Parker for dropping this one last night & a massive THANK YOU to everyone who came down and supported some REAL house sounds in the Sydney Underground.

Stay close for more event information and the special Terrence Parker live podcast we will be posting pretty soon too.

DEEP HOUSE, DETROIT TECHNO: Anthony Shake Shakir – Travellers


Tickets $20+BF: http://www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?287280

Detroit producer Anthony “Shake” Shakir is one of the more under recognized, underappreciated names in American techno. A bedroom producer since 1981, Shake had an important role in helping shape the early Motor City sound associated with artists such as Juan Atkins/Model 500 and Derrick May. He worked with May and Carl Craig as a producer, writer, or engineer on several early tracks on Metroplex, and worked in management and A&R for the label (as well, he’s often joked, as being the janitor) during its formative years. His first solo material appeared on Virgin’s seminal Techno Sound of Detroit compilation, under the name Sequence 10. Known as something of a techno purist, Shake has distanced himself from the European scene many of his colleagues have turned to for support (this accounts somewhat for his continuing obscurity), and his music is stylistically closer to second wave artists such as Mike Banks and Claude Young – hard, stripped-down tracks which owe equally to techno, electro, hip-hop, and funk.

Shake’s visibility and reputation have risen in more recent years as a result of his Frictional and Puzzlebox labels, the latter of which he formed in 1996 with fellow Detroit electro/techno producer Keith Tucker (formerly of Aux 88). Releasing a series of records both solo and in combination (usually under the name Da Sampla), Shake and Tucker’s Puzzlebox has, along with Underground Resistance and Guidance, become one of the more coveted sources of straight-up, no-bones Detroit techno.

Thanks to Rush Hour Records – the “Shake” has had a new lease on life and with the amazing compliation – “Frictionalism” earlier in 2010, this sky rocketed Shakir back into the scene.

This is Anthony first time in Australia and we are very excited to be able to show case his talents. Anthony amazing production plus his amazing energy and DJ skills behind the decks will make this a very special night.

Along side Anthony we have Joe Stanley and Daniel Lupica.
