Detroit classic. Totally original. A trip. Some of the usual comments when it comes to any Theo Parrish / Sound Signature release - but this is one is even more so. This is the one of the few full lengths from the influential Detroit label, and you can bet it's a burner front to back. When the album was originally released back in 2007, it sold out everywhere before it actually made it into stores (ed.note: we never even got it), so here's another chance to snag it. You get all his angles here - from the soulful to offbeat programming to minimal (Chicago) techno, and everything with Theo's special touch. These are some of my favorites picks at a first listen - "They Say, Soul Control, Galactic Ancestors, The Rink," and "Synthetic Flemm" (with Omar-S) - and if these are touching your g-spot you'll probably love the whole thing. Lots of material to soak in over 3 LPs housed in a deluxe triple gatefold sleeve. Well recommended.
