With the imminent release of his debut album To Eternity almost upon us, Parker is set to become the name to watch in 2008.
Taking in a vast array of musical influences the album is united by a love of heavy and finely chopped drums, lush orchestration and off-kilter samples. Tempos rise and fall as Parker moves between the epic sweep of down tempo hip-hop through to the blistering roll of dance floor breaks. Its mix of vintage sounds, nu-school production, guest vocalists and driving grooves, has marked the Bristol native out as a rising star in the UK beats scene.
Pre-release hype from the likes of Radio 1, BBC 6Music, DJ Yoda, A Skillz, DJ Andy Smith, and Massive Attack’s Daddy G, has seen singles Sugar Coated and Western Soul get into the right record boxes, and the most esteemed radio play lists.
Sugar Coated was also heavily rotated on MTV, whilst second release Western Soul firmly established itself as a club banger, igniting dancing feet far and wide thanks to its soaring melody, neck snap beat and killer vocal from legendary West Coast rapper Rasco.
Parker’s unique brand of dancefloor production has clearly set tongues wagging, but lets not forget his incredible talents behind the decks! Flawless DJ sets seamlessly blend an eclectic bag of breaks, hip-hop and drum and bass with classic funk, soul and rock! His technical abilities behind the wheels can be heard on his ‘The Butler Did It…’ mixtape, which has racked up a fan base that includes the likes of DJ Yoda, Russ Cuban, Freddy Fresh and DK, a DJ who championed the mix on his Solid Steel radio show.
Trust us, Parker will have won over your hearts, minds and dancing feet before the year is out!
