A chance sound clip on the Hardwax store of the Voiceprint 12" repress brought me here. How thankful I am.

This is Techno seemingly made by the machines themselves after they waited for Mike Parker to turn the lights off and leave the studio.

Combines the barren sparsity of early dubstep labels DMZ and Tectonic, the expressive, almost verbal synths of Mike Schommer's DC15 outing on Deepchord and the punishing industrialism of Birmingham's very own British Murder Boys.

Immediately immersive, entirely clinical and yet organic in its presentation - like watching ripples on water, clouds move across the sky or trees change across the seasons - his work offers many layers of sonic craft that reveal themselves over repeat listens

Simultaneously uncompromising and welcoming, restrained and expressive, clinical yet human, these are tracks that ask for your time and reward it in full.

Parker accomplishes more in four bars than most in the techno game during their entire lives.

Give your mind to Mr. Parker and he will reward it.

gotta say, wasnt a big fan of it at first, but after listening to it more and more he is becoming one of my favorite techno artists. productionwise he is a bit like plastikman. always using very similar sounds and arrangements, but always with enough experimentation so that it doesnt get boring. if they ever make another alien movie they need to hire this guy for the soundtrack. even though its techno, it would not sound out of place. throw voiceprint: voice one in there and you got nice background music ;)

edit: just noticed how much his music reminds me of HR Giger's art. the typical mechanic precision of techno, but combined with those weird, organic and mutating synths.

I had the privilege of "growing up" with Mike Parker as a mainstay at Buffalo parties in the mid-1990's, getting to hear his music bounce off of warehouse walls. I'm happy to know that he is still making music: he is one of my favorites. Somewhere out there is a tape of his live performance from a party called Transmission Nine. If you ever come across it: grab it! It's fantastic.

Mike Parker is one of my favorite artists. Not only does he make incredible music, but he hand screen prints the sleeves of his records sourced from his own paintings/drawings.. as seen on Geophone and Prologue. And he is a teacher by day...
Dude is inspiring and a true artist in every sense of the word, can't recommend picking up his releases enough, and he is a fantastic remixer.

The constant repeating and subtle variations in his music will make you question where you are in the track. You are always dropped into a maze of evolving sounds....

In a time of over-saturation it is nice to know that Mike is still one of the very few artists whose sound you can spot after 4 bars into a track, going "Hey, this must be Mike Parker!".

Mike Parker is an artist in every sense of the word. His minimal techno tracks are like paintings of landscapes, ever changing in front of your eyes. This man makes techno with a different mindset, each new 12" being a piece of art. The tracks are a bit slow but that really helps create a certain mood.
Unfortunately I have never had the pleasure of seeing this man perform as a dj or live.

Mike Parker is responsible for some of the deepest, most abstract techno I have come across. The textures and atmospheres he creates are sublime. For those unable to locate Geophone vinyl, the "Dispatches" CD is a great showcase of his work.
