It's a raw but utterly soulful track. It makes an instant connection. The opening is dominated by an interesting percussive beat, one which sounds very rugged and rough round the edges, gaining further layers throughout the duration of this patient introduction. The track's real beauty shines through after 1:3o, where the heart and soul is created. A stunningly warm synth chord arrangement slowly rises as the harsher intricate percussion recedes, with a determined 4x4 beat patiently building as the track progresses. Add to the lo-fi synths the looped sample which repeats the words "dance sing", and this track bleeds soul. It's a track which you can't help but nod along to, it's hypnotic in its 13 minute duration. Absolute killer from Parrish, from start to finish. You can listen to 'Dance Sing' in the video below, as well as his recent refix of Amerie's 'One Thing' entitled 'Just 1 love Bug', printed on a limited edition clear red vinyl. Enjoy.
"Love of the music should be the driving force of any producer, performer or DJ. Everything else stems from that core, that love. With that love, sampling can become a tribute; An expansion on ideas long forgotten, reconstruction, collage. Using the same understanding openly and respectfully can turn DJing into a spiritual participation. It can turn a few hours of selection into essential history; Necessary listening through movement."
