A  Few points that might help you organize you day better;

  • We are hoping to kick off by 11pm till around 6 or later depending on vibe
  • We will be waiting for the weather forecast before we make the call as it is outdoors, if it does look like it’s going to rain then we will simply move till next sunny Sunday. (We will be in touch later in the week via email and on the day via SMS in case we have to move the party so we will need your Mob. details too.)
  • If you are a local Musician, Mc, Singer, Percussionist or DJ then we are very keen to hear from you if you would like to play, especially if you down to play percussion along the Djs in an open jam vibe for Sunday.

GOSPEL, DEEP-HOUSE, DISCO: TERRENCE PARKER (Parker Music Works/Detroit) Sat 24th Oct Presented by Our House, Supported by Phil Toke


Detroit Techno House live in Sydney ! Terrence Parker

TERRENCE PARKER
Detroit has been credited as one of the Soul Music capitals of the world, spawning legendary artists like The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross just to name a few. In the mid 1980s, Detroit’s Underground Music Movement has brought rise to artists such as Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson, Blake Baxter, Eddie “Flashin” Fowlkes, UR, Jeff Mills, and a host of others. But unlike the aforesaid names, Terrence Parker has established himself as a producer, remixer and DJ of the classic sound of Detroit House Music, and is known as a pioneer of the Inspirational / Gospel House movement!

As a DJ, Terrence Parker (known to many as “TP”) has become legendary for his quite uncommon yet skillful turntablism style of playing House Music. TP has also become widely admired because he uses an actual telephone handset as headphones; causing some to give him the nick name, “Telephone Man”. Others call him the “Telephone Man” because he has answered the CALL to bring us music to feed our souls!

TP has performed as a DJ in hundreds of cities throughout the world. These events range from night clubs (large and small) to music festivals with more that 100,000 people. Since 1988, TP has released more than 100 recordings on various labels, and has had top 20 hits with his songs “Love’s Got Me High”, “The Question” and albums like “Detroit After Dark” in the U.K., The Netherlands, Germany, and France.

Terrence’s high quality of music productions, remixes, and DJ skill has been recognized by organizations such as the Detroit Historical Museum’s History of Techno International Exhibit, and Indiana State University’s Department Of African American Music And Culture. TP’s collective musical works and pioneering efforts have been recognized as a valuable
contribution to Detroit’s music history, as well as the International History Dance Music.

Terrence is also a well respected remixer. His remix projects include such popular artists as Kelly Rowland, Vickie Winans, Lyfe Jennings, Michelle Williams, Trinitee 5:7, Omarion feat. Bow Wow, Aaron Carl, Tiffany Evans feat Ciara, Wyclef feat Akon, Beyonce & Shakira, Kanye West, Christina Aguilera, Shaun Escoffery, Ce Ce Winans, Dr. Charles Hayes & The Cosmopolitan Church Of Prayer Choir, Amerie, Chris Brown, Anointed Pace Sisters, Upper Street, and many more.

Terrence has also been busy working on his own projects with artists like Coco Street which are featured on TP’s digital music label called Parker Music Works! In addition to TP’s first label venture known as Intangible Records, TP’s music has also been released on labels such as Studio K7 (Germany), Network/Six6 (UK), KMS (USA), Simply Soul (USA), Deconstruction (UK), Superb Ent. (Japan), as well as major labels Universal, EMI, Virgin, and Sony/BMG.

Local supports include Phil Toke, Phil Hudson, Eadie Ramia and Michael Zac

Limited $20 presale tickets are available from www.ourhousesydney.com. or $25 on the door. Strictly limited capacity so get in quick.
