"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.”
