Theo Parrish – First Floor (Part 1)
Label: Peacefrog Records – PF076/1
Format: 2 × Vinyl, 12"
Released: Oct 1998
Style: Deep House
Theo's enduring masterpiece First Floor (Part One). Twenty years on this one stilllll does the business and is some of the finest pieces in the Detroit-based, Chicago-born artist's flawless repertoire. Theo's signature, rough-hewn deeeeep jazz-tinged grooves that develop and evolve patiently are pretty much unparalleled and are equally at home in the armchair of late night listening sessions as they are deployed on early morning dance floors. Utterly essential for any house head and the original press perfectly encapsulates the dichotomy between raw production and jazz-influenced nuances. (2016 repress // MINT // SEALED).
