Cologne Sessions pres. Parrish Smith
“No elitism, no prejudices, no genre, hypnotic, tense, comprehensible, a state of mind”
Parrish Smith crafts a sound that’s both familiar and deeply inexplicable. Hovering between body music, electronica and deep-burning industrial yet rejecting the conventions of all three, his output is as elusive as it is absorbing. Inspired by personal experiences and his determination to keep evolving, Smith developed a distinctive sound derived from an all-analogue set-up, sampling every object that produces sound. His signature raw machine wrangling gained attention from Nina Kraviz who released his track ‘L’importance du Doute’ on her трип imprint, while the Dutch label Knekelhuis signed his debut EP: Virgin Of The World. Alongside Pankow and Helena Hauff , Smith contributed to a split EP on Contort Yourself and a 4 tracker on L.I.E.S. records.
Following on from his most recent release on Dekmantel UFO, ‘Sex Suicide & Speed Metal’, Parrish Smith has been touring extensively and remains a consistently touring DJ performing across the world.
