Terrence Parker new album release "GOD Loves Detroit" on Planet E



Now after Terrence's 2014 critically acclaimed number # 1 Traxsource album chart seller "Life On The Back 9" comes the follow up album entitled "GOD Loves Detroit" due for release in June 2017 on Planet E Communications. Although most of the 12 track album is produced exclusively by Terrence, it also features "Bassment Beatz", "Don't Waste Another Minute", "Just Like Muzik" co-produced, co-written, and performed by Merachka, as well as "Latter Rain" co-produced, co-written, and performed by Coco Street.

The concept of the album came first in 2013 while the city of Detroit just filled bankruptcy making it the largest municipal bankruptcy debt filing in US history. The city was the subject of jokes on late night television, and ridiculed globally. Terrence couldn't help but spiritually feel GOD must be allowing this for a reason. As the city began to slowly turn around HE was inspired to create a collection of songs that would ultimately make up the album concluding that GOD does love Detroit. The album features Gospel melodies, Tech House bangers, Soulful grooves, and Downtempo delights, all-encompassing Terrence's musical tastes.

Over 35 years, Terrence Parker has established an international profile as a Producer & DJ who enjoys, produces, and plays various styles of music throughout the world. He continues to tour regularly with a desire to reach all the world.

GOD Loves Detroit is due out June 30, 2017.

Terrence Parker - "Pentecost" (remixes by Traumer & Terrence Parker)


"Pentecost" featured on Terrence Parker's 2014 album 'Life on the Back 9', and this single features three remixes of the track; one from Terrence himself and two from French producer Traumer. Terrence Parker's Acts 2-1 Remix stays close to the original, maintaining the style that conveys the positivity of the church inspired lyrics with music designed for the dancefloor. The Traumer Remix has a far darker tone as the higher pitched intense backing from the original is replaced with a deep baseline and tribal sounding drum beat, offering a different type of intensity. Traumer's Reduced Remix is a completely stripped down version of his previous remix, with the spoken vocal removed whilst maintaining the tribal sounding drum to create a dark, techno track. 

"Pentecost" is available today at:

"Life On The Back 9" hits number # 1 on Traxsource Top 100 Album Chart

 

Legendary Detroit Producer, Remixer, and DJ Terrence Parker's "Life On The Back 9"album has reached the number # 1 spot on the Traxsource Top 100 Album Chart. This album was originally released in January 2014 on the Detroit based label Planet E which is owned and operated by Carl Craig, with an expanded version of the album released in November 2014 on the London based label Defected Records. "Life On The Back 9" expanded version features remixes by Louie Vega, Marc Romboy, Mark Flash, TimeLine (UR), and Black Catalogue, with previously unreleased remixes by Merachka, House Of Praise, and Terrence himself.

Described variously as an innovator, a champion of soulful house music and a true ‘DJs DJ’, Terrence Parker has touched and inspired many hearts over the course of his long and illustrious career. A Detroit pioneer for a style of music that perhaps doesn’t naturally fit with his city of origin, Parker has thrived on pushing boundaries both in the studio and behind the decks, and his latest album, Life On The Back 9, further cements his legacy. 

Says Parker of the re-release: “It has been a dream of mine to have a release on Defected because I have always admired their quality releases. Since the 90's, I have always played at least two or three records from Defected in my DJ sets.This album has close personal meaning for me and to have it released on Defected is an overwhelming honor.”

Terrence Parker featuring Merachka - "Open Up Your Spirit" Remixes - Defected Records


 
Detroit legend Terrence Parker lands on Defected with ‘Open Up You Spirit’, featuring four brand new mixes of one of the standout cuts on his ‘Life On The Back 9’ album.

Kicking off proceedings is TP’s Deeep Detroit Heat Remix which demonstrates positivity through Merachka’s powerful gospel vocal and an ever-grooving baseline that is mirrored by organ keys, highlighting why Terrence, and Detroit’s underground house scene, is very much in the forefront of soulful house being done the right way. TP’s Bangin Piano Remix does what is says on the tin as classic piano chords and four-to-the-floor house beats build the track to almost cacophonic extreme before dropping into a warm bass synth to start the ride over again. On the flipside is TP's Deeep Detroit Heat Instrumental and completing the pack is Merachka's Kreep Into Your Spirit And Open It Up Remix which strips things back with 303-esque acid lines and thumping kick-claps.

 

TRACK LISTING

A1. Open Up Your Spirit (TP's Deep Detroit Heat Remix)
A2. Open Up Your Spirit (TP's Bangin Piano Remix)
B1. Open Up Your Spirit (TP's Deep Detroit Heat Instrumental)
B2. Open Up Your Spirit (Merachka's Kreep Into Your Spirit And Open It Up Remix)
