If you are looking at Theo's mixes on Sound Signature and trying to decide whether or not to buy, DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND JUST BUY THEM. The $20-50 for each used mix from each seller is a STEAL.

Honestly, you won't find any other mixes by anybody that can even remotely compare to Theo's work as a DJ. I've been listening to house, techno, tech-house, deep house and everything else in between for over 20 years, and NOTHING compares to Theo.

His mixes are the most valuable items in my entire music collection. I wouldn't sell my copies for any amount and I play them out WEEKLY and have been for years now. Timeless stuff.

When you look upon all house music scene, there are countless of producers call themselves ultra artistic while they're all about hype & shit!

Theo is on the other hand, way ahead of them. He's not doing what is popular, he's doing what is called "timeless music". Go back a few years back in his catalogue & give an ear. You won't get feel you're listening music..You will FEEL the music.

This music is organic & has a birth, Take you anywhere you wanna go & live with you forever.

Reason is simple. Jazz & House music for me kinda like ice cream with stick. If you want to taste it, you should need it. And Theo knows how to use it best. That's why his music will live on so long.

Apparently an edit by Theo of Minnie Riperton - Reasons. Doesn't seem legit to me, seems to exist only on youtube...

Possibly the most versatile and otherwordly DJ on the planet...can play anything, bring hard techno into a soul record with no pbm. As a producer, sometimes a bit too raw for me but as a DJ...pphheeewww! Special memories of his open-air set on the afternoon at DEMF1, ending with Prince's 'America'...a beautiful moment, and a real happy mixed crowd like you don't see much in Europe these days.

For me, Theo is the man. His tunes initially attracted me to Detroit house because of their grittyness and soulfulness and dirtyness and rawness and honestness. Only guys from Detroit can make house music that sounds like this, it's so amazing. To describe his sound i would use these words: deep, hypnotic, sublime.

Im mostly a techno guy, but MR. theo parrish is with no doubt in my mind, my favorite producer...his music keeps you guessing, "whats gonna happen next?"...and when it happens, it doesnt land where you expected it to...and his music is damn fine to dance to, moves your mind and your feet...I love him deeply
