Deep House
  1. Aquarian Voyage (6:33)
  2. Run Sa (Dimitri Walker live drums) (5:48)
Review: Sound Signature's latest missive comes from Byron The Aquarius, a former Onra collaborator best known for his dusty trips into MPC beat-making territory. Here, the Atlanta-based producer successfully turns his hand to dusty, soul-flecked deep house, peppering the bumpin' groove of "Aquarian Voyage" with a toasty bassline and twinkling Rhodes motifs. It's the kind of hazy, jazz-flecked deep house that Sound Signature has always done better than almost anyone else. Flipside "Run Sa", featuring the fluid and intoxicating playing of drummer Dmitri Walker, is even better, with warm chords draping themselves over snappy snares, hissing cymbals and killer fills.

Deep House
  1. Lemonlime (10:25)
  2. Sof N Thik (5:55)
Review: Leron Carson may not be the best-known Midwest producer, but he has history. Carson's first release came way back in 2001, with Theo Parrish putting out a track he'd recorded way back in 1987 and has appeared on Sound Signature intermittently over the years. This new 12" from Carson for Theo's label is HEAVY! "Lemonline" is a deliciously breezy concoction, with Carson's jazzy piano riffs working in perfect unison with bouncy, Latin-influenced drum rhythms. Flipside "Sofnthik", on the other hand, sounds like a previously unheard 1980s Chicago deep house concoction, with warm, loved-up chords swirling around a clattering drum machine groove. Whether it was recorded 30 years ago is unknown, but it certainly boasts a similar lo-fi, analogue feel.

Techno
  1. Leon Carson - "China Trax" (8:32)
  2. Theo Parrish - "Insane Asylum" (9:57)
Review: Oh yes, we love it when Theo represses some of his most sought after tracks and this one is particularly well-timed. Leron Carson is still an unknown figure, a kid who used to make viciously raw and futuristic techno tracks in the late 1980's! "China Trax", alongside the rest of his tracks on a different Sound Signature double 12", is totally ahead of its time and if it was truly made in 1987 then it is nothing short of amazing. Of course, it's not just the year it was made in that's interesting but also the fact that it's music without an age, able to be appreciated by any generation of techno freaks. Theo's own "Insane Asylum" on the flipside is also pretty monumental; rigged beats, off-kilter grooves and that familiar spontaneity so heavily associated to the label. RECOMMENDED.

Deep House
  1. Moon Circuitry (6:40)
  2. Escape On The Lodge Freeway (8:25)
Review: This year, Theo Parrish seems to be doing his best to breathe new life into the careers of broken beat-era producers and musicians. Having previously released an excellent EP from Dego and Kaidi Tatham on Sound Signature, his latest missive comes from one-time conscious hip-hop producer Ge ology and one-time go-to jazz keys-man Mark De Clive-Lowe. The latter's brilliant synthesizer and piano work is arguably the highlight of both tracks here. On the spacey, P-funk influenced space-house swing of "Moon Circuitry" he does his best impression of Herbie Hancock, while "Escape On The Lodge Freeway" boasts intricate jazz solos atop a slightly tougher, chunkier deep house groove. Both tracks are, of course, impeccable.

  1. Long Walk In Your Sun
  2. Strawberry Dragon
Review: Sound Signature end 2013 how they started it; with a fresh slab of Theo Parrish goodness! Whilst the Dance of the Medusa EP issued back in January was Theo in marauding beat down mode, it seems the respected Detroit based producer is in a much mellower mood here. For example, the title track on the Long Walk In Sun 12" is the sort of mid-tempo production that would feature in an early doors Floating Points set at Plastic People. Complementing this, "Strawberry Dragon" features a more prominent display of Parrish's widely regarded skills at chopping percussion, but it's the resplendent instrumentation that stands out.

  9. Helmutlampshade
Review: Given that this is the first album from the great Theo Parrish since 2007, it's unsurprising interest in American Intelligence has rocketed over the course of the year as Sound Signature left a trail of hints. Happily, American Intelligence is a fine album; deep and woozy in parts, undeniably soulful, shot through with jazz influences and full to bursting with killer cuts. By now, everyone should know the brilliant "Footwork" single (arguably one of the records of 2014); soon, clubs will swing to the off-kilter dancefloor jazz of "Make No War", the 21st century broken house of the epic "Fallen Funk" and the decidedly odd - but brilliant - "Helmut Lampshade".

  15. Men From The Nile - "Watch Them Come!!!"
  16. Theo Parrish - "Selector's Theme"
  17. Theo Parrish - "Dance Of The Drunken Drums"
Review: Theo Parrish doesn't serve up many mix CDs these days, so it's good that he's making a swathe of classic recordings available again. Live In Detroit was initially recorded and released back in 1999, and sees the Motor City house legend joining the dots between the cosmic deep house and raging acid tracks of Larry Heard, the intergalactic jazz-funk of Herbie Hancock, the percussive disco onslaught of the Erotic Drum Band (the drum-heavy madness of "Jerky Rhythm"), and a sprinkling of '80s boogie favourites. The great man also reaches for a number of his own impeccable productions, and keeps things moving with the skill of a true master.

Techno
  1. The Gooch
  2. Zodiak
  3. Body Blow
Review:  been four years since Chicago producer Andres "Specter" Ordonez pitched up on Theo Parrish's Sound Signature label with the smoky, bleep-laden killer "Pipe Bomb". Here, he returns to the Detroit veteran's imprint, bringing with him three more slabs of fuzzy analogue oddness. "The Gooch" is the real killer, a 10-minute freakout that sounds like a jazz band making murky techno with just analogue machinery to play with - all wonky electronics, subtle acid and loose but relentless cymbals. The bolder "Zodiak" impresses with its 303-driven aggression, while "Body Blow" sounds like Hieroglyphic Being jamming with Buddy Miles. On Mars. That's gotta be good, right?

Deep House
  1. Siren
  2. Other Science
Review: Sound Signature completists will be rubbing their hands with a sense of relish at the label's 42nd release as it sees more material drawn from the late 80s archives of Leron Carson. Back in 2001, Theo Parrish introduced Leron Carson's work with "China Trax" which sounded like the uncovered cassette recordings of a deviant Robert Hood. Carson's busted lo fi productions from the same era were later given a more extensive airing on the double plated Sound Signature issue Red Lightbulb Theory '87-'88 and this third appearance on the label draws from some recordings made in collaboration with the unheralded D Wilson. All Sound Signature will offer by way of description is "This was Southside Chitown '89. If you weren't there you weren't there.... lots of underground unreleased music circulated on the Southside on maxell and tonemaster tapes from Walgreens - 2 dollars for a pack of eight" For our money both "Siren" and "Other Science" can be compared to the twisted, grainy freeform acid Jamal Moss makes.
