Going out: Theo Parrish at La Cheetah

Tonight La Cheetah Club plays host to Detroit based house/techno legend Theo Parrish. Theo has been releasing his own distinctive sound that is made up of a blend of Chicago house and elements of Detroit Techno with influences from jazz, hip-hop, funk and disco for almost two decades now.

Graduating from the Chicago Academy of the Arts and going on to receive his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1994. Growing up he was heavily influenced by jazz artists such as Miles Davis and Nina Simone, and also stated in a Red Bull Music Academy interview that Stevie Wonder was the beginning of his musical education.

As well as releases on Moodyman's KDJ he has released on Sound Signature the label he runs himself which has also seen releases from the likes of Redshape, Kyle Hall, Roman Flugel amongst many many others.

Theo is now most definitely at the peak of his game and has never comprised his own ideals to get there. Not being afraid to push the boundaries of what house music can be results in him creating outstanding productions as well as DJ sets renowned for their expansive genre hopping.

Catch him at La Cheetah tonight its not to be missed, there will also be a city centre after party for those of you that like to keep the party going into the early hours.
