If Knighthoods were given out for contributions to crowd rocking, Parker would be curtseying in front of the Queen come New Year. As it is, plaudits range from Massive Attack to DJ Yoda. Royalty indeed!
First starting his rise smashing chumps via DJ battles, Bristol’s Parker soon turned his hand to production gaining “lofty comparisons to the marvelous RJD2″. The luscious beats and driving funk of his ‘To Eternity’ LP garnered rave reviews and wide critical acclaim. Proving he was no flash in the pan, Parker followed the album with a series of club-rocking bangers, finding homes at such heavy hitting labels as Bombstrikes, Goodgroove, and Jalapeno.
Not one to rest on his laurels Parker began to dabble in bass-heavy frequencies with “deliciously pleasing results”. His remixes of James Brown and Bjork both topped the Hype Machine Chart, while ‘Where’s My Monkey?’ made him a household name. Parker’s Crack House remix of Max Sedgley and Glitch Hop collaboration with Finley Quay further showed his versatility and confirmed him as a hit with national taste-makers BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Kiss, 6Music and XFM.
A hectic DJ schedule has seen Parker’s incredible deck talents already rock such festivals as Glastonbury, Shambhala (Canada), Big Chill and Bestival, as well as various club hot spots across the globe including FabricLive.
Always one for “combining a cheeky sense of humour with a keen ear for a record-defining sample” (I-DJ Magazine) who knows what styles he’ll be running, or inventing next. Parker is, and always will be, your friendly neighborhood beatsmith.
