Terrence Parker - Life On The Back 9 [Planet E]

Terrence Parker ‘Life On The Back 9’ 
Planet E
Released: January 28th
 

Terrence Parker, a native of Detroit and a man who lives and breathes Detroit House Music, releases his third artist album on Planet E – ‘Life On The Back 9’.

“This album is about moving forward through hard times in life to see something beautiful on the other side of difficulties.” – Terrence Parker

Detroit has been credited as one of the Soul Music capitals of the world, spawning legendary artists like The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross. In the mid 1980s, Detroit’s Underground Music Movement brought rise to artists such as Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson, Blake Baxter, Eddie ‘Flashin’ Fowlkes, UR, Jeff Mills, and a host of others. But unlike the aforementioned, Terrence Parker has established himself as a producer, remixer and DJ of the classic sound of Detroit House Music, and is known as the pioneer of the music genre known as ‘Inspirational House Music’.

As a DJ, Terrence Parker (known to many as ‘TP’) has become legendary for his quite uncommon yet skillful turntablism style of playing House Music. TP has also become widely admired because he uses an actual telephone handset as headphones; causing some to give him the nick-name, “Telephone Man”.

Since 1988, Parker has released more than 100 recordings on labels including Studio!K7 and Systematic and has had top 20 hits with his songs ‘Love’s Got Me High’, ‘The Question’ and albums like ‘Detroit After Dark’. A well-respected remixer, his remixes include releases on underground imprints Saved, D-Edge and artists including Kenny Dixon Jr., Wyclef feat Akon, Beyonce & Shakira, Kanye West, Christina Aguilera, Shaun Escoffery and more.

Direct from Detroit, ‘Life On The Back 9’ is inspirational house music down to its soul. From the energetic yet soulful opening track ‘Finally’ (Baby Be Mine), released on Planet-E in 2013, to the melodious, groovy basslines, piano riffs and high synths of ‘Night Light’, to the forward pushing, make you dance ‘Saved Forever’, to the bumpin’ ‘God He Is’, to the funky tech instrumental ‘Spiritual Warfare’, to the grooved out melodic ‘The Friend I Lost’ to ‘Hiding In Your Love’ – all about getting lost in dancing to the music (dancing is a form of worship), to the pause and reflect ‘Selah Interlude’ to ‘My Virtuous Woman’ – inspired by a very special lady in Terrence’s life, to the pumping ‘Open Up Your Spirit’ to the intensity of ‘Pentecost’ and finally the uplifting ‘The Back 9’ a song dedicated to Parker’s father, who gave him inspiration when he needed it the most.

“The title of the album “Life On The Back 9” was inspired by something my father said to encourage me while I was down going through an extremely difficult period in my life. my father told about one of his golf games where the first 9 holes (also known as the “front 9”) seemed to be the worst he had ever played. It was so bad he felt like packing his clubs and leaving the course. However my father paused, prayed, and decided to finish the game. As he began playing the last 9 holes of the course (also known as the “back 9”), he could see gradual improvement in his game as he advanced each hole. By the end of the game my father had done so well he won the entire match. My father then said to me, “Terrence if you think of your life as a game of golf, perhaps the front 9 did not go as you had liked. But don’t give up because you still have the back 9.” – Terrence Parker

Psycatron – Memories Of The Moment (preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 5, 2011 by dk

Those of you who remember Psycatron’s stunning remix of Mutant Clan’s ‘Persuader’ from John Digweed’s first ‘Structures’ album, or the brilliant ‘Vertigo In The Modern’ (Beddigi08) with Sian, will no doubt be chomping at the bit to get your ears around this brand new single. This is HOT!!!!!
Psycatron, aka Northern Irish duo Paul Hamill & Dave Oost Lievense, produce 21st century techno with tracks that combine relentless energy and groove with bundles of emotion and tension, to make for an all-encompassing sound that is perfect for those big arenas and club rooms. Their Original Mix with its energetic, melodic, percussive groove backbone mounted on a deep, throbbing bassline, builds a drawn out brooding vibe towards an ecstatic mid-way climax before layering and building in pure, intense Psycatron style.
‘Memories Of The Moment’ has been the biggest track of the summer for Psycatron in their live sets, so you may have heard it already at the I Love Techno Festival, Global Gathering, Klubbers Day Madrid, Fabric, Berghain, Oxygen Ireland, Astrolopolis France, Baracca Valencia, The Loft Barcelona, or on their multiple dates on the Planet E 20th World Tour.
Between them, John Digweed and Nick Muir, producers of the finest electronic dance music, have been involved in many pivotal moments in the world of club music over the years and have in many ways helped to define genres & push the boundaries further. As with all their studio productions their remix of ‘Memories Of The Moment’ is another mission statement to show that they are not resting on past laurels but always developing their sound in an exciting direction. It’s a spine-tingling, fizzing, spiralling, anthemic monster that will be huge worldwide.
Remixes for Spooky, Simian Mobile Disco and Vince Watson have all been Psycatron highlights already this year, and a single with Paul Woolford for HotFlush received critical acclaim. New singles are on the way alongside Sian and Detroit Grand Pubahs, whilst the boys are currently locked down in their studio, working on the first Psycatron long-player for release in 2012. In the meantime you can tune into their fortnightly Electric Avenue radio show on Proton, which already has 20k subscribers.

Psycatron’s high profile productions have been popping up on some of the world’s most respected labels, receiving props from some of the biggest names in the business and record sales flying high in the Beatport charts. Fergie (Rekluse), Carl Craig (Planet E), Christian Smith (Tronic), Will Saul (Simple), legendary Belgian label R&S Records, have all featured stunning Psycatron tracks, so it seems fitting that they have now linked up with Bedrock Records again to end the year in style.

“These guys are fantastic, definitely a name to look out for” – John Digweed
“I LOVE Psycatron” – Laurent Garnier
“Psycatron is one of the acts of the year” – Agoria

Paul Woolford & Psycatron – Stolen

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , on September 23, 2011 by dk

Hotflush presents a special collaboration between two modern-day techno innovators: Paul Woolford and Psycatron. Both maintaining an influential discography on labels such as Planet E, Intimacy, Tresor, and Bedrock, they’ve come together to produce “Stolen”, a nine-minute techno excursion. Utilising relentless, throbbing percussion that sizzles over growling, acidic synthesis and carefully placed samples, it’s presented in three distinct versions, introducing filter-swept chords in the Dub Mix, and an even deeper submersion in the second Dub Mix that perfectly eclipses the raw temperament of the original.

Artist: Paul Woolford & Psycatron
Title: Stolen
Format: Vinyl & Digital
Label: Hotflush Two
Release: 24 October 2011

Ramadanman & Appleblim — Void 23 (Carl Craig Re-Edit)(preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 3, 2010 by dk

Will Saul’s imprint, Aus Music, returns with the much anticipated Ramadanman and Appleblim single “Void 23”, which comes complete with a re-edit from one of the cornerstones of electronic music – Carl Craig. The original track, featured on Damian Lazarus’ just released fabric 54 compilation, further fuses the production sensibilities of dubstep with the sounds and vibes of techno to devastating effect. Carl Craig delivers more than just a re-edit, changing the rhythm structure of the original to enable it to work in peak time house and techno settings. Erol Alkin recently declared that the c2 edit “just blew my mind” after hearing Ramadanman drop it at a recent gig.

In 2010, Carl Craig could be found working on remixes for fellow artists Hot Chip, Radio Slave and Kenny Larkin. This year, Planet E, Craig’s Detroit based label, released EP’s by Gemini, Sandiego and Urban Tribe, to name a few. Next year, the label will celebrate its 20th year anniversary.

Ramadanman co-runs the label Hessle Audio with Panagaea and Ben UFO. He has graced us with several releases from his own imprint as well as esteemed labels Soul Jazz, Tempa and Critical Music.  Most recently, Ramadanman partnered up with Midland on a joint EP for Aus titled ‘Your Words Matter / More Than You Know’, pairing the sounds of classic house and garage with dub step creating something completely fresh.

Appleblim, head of Applepips and co-founder of Skull Disco has been keeping busy as well, with remixes for Paul Woolford and the Ostgut Ton label and the recently released Lipsmacker EP on Aus, a collaboration with fellow Bristol based bass enthusiast, Al Tourettes.
