Only five days to go and he will fly in from Detroit and Rip of the Roof and Break down tha House with his soulful electronics.

So I guess the time has come to get y’all warmed up. Usually we do this by throwing a lot of mixes your way to get you hyped up and the truth is we will do that again as soon as Noggy finds one that has not been featured on tha blog already. Of course for those of you in need of some musical incentive Eclectro.nl has a beautiful post (in Dutch) on this upcoming event with a sweet download waiting for you to come and get it. Interested? …just click here.

But since this genius has a great number of fans which include a lot of DJ’s and people otherwise attached to music on a level that is above the common headnodder status … I thought it might be interesting to offer the RMBA video stream of his 2008 lecture. In this lecture Mr. Parrish breaks down how he got to where he is today and gives us “common people” a piece of his genius mind … that and a lot of Detroit House history.

A worth of warning … it’s a 2 hour stream so make sure you are really comfortable before you press play..

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Theo Parrish is a techno/house musician based in Detroit, Michigan. He was born in Washington, DC. He grew up in Chicago, Illinois listening to jazz musicians like Miles Davis, Nina Simone, and George Gershwin. He graduated from the Chicago Academy of the Arts and went to study at the Kansas City Art Institute. While at KCAI, he concentrated on sound sculptures, creating sonic pieces by combining live instruments, human voices, and looped recordings. He received his BFA in 1994 and moved to Michigan to focus on musical projects.

He has recorded music under his own name as well as with Rick Wilhite, Marcellus Malik Pittman and Kenneth Dixon Jr as 3 Chairs. He also puts out releases on his record label, Sound Signature. Another aspect of Theo Parrish’s productions are his re-edits, often of old disco, funk or soul records. He is almost as renowned for his expansive and genre-hopping live DJ sets as his productions.
