If you’ve been following the production trajectory of Theo Parrish over the past six months then you’ll have become accustomed to expect some outlandish, unpredictable releases from the Sound Signature main man. Still though, few would have seen this coming. Central to the DNA of “Any Other Styles” is a cornucopia of FX dredged up from arcade beat-em up moves and crudely nudged to fit an abstractive, thick set beat pattern that bucks angrily with a frenetic nature that’s beyond unpredictable. It’s the strangest Theo record we’ve heard in some time, but when any number of people are treading shallow waters in the name of contemporary deep house, don’t we need some people to not even consider “the box” when it comes to approaching music?
Ital drops a masterful revision of “Danza”, the title track from the first instalment of the Aster trilogy of twelve inches set to drop on Hivern over the coming months.
Taking the vast swathes of Utopian textures that dominate Aster’s original in full flight, Ital adds his a procession of distortion laden vocals and applies them to a base arrangement of thick, burrowing low end and broken, clipping house rhythms.
