Theo Parrish Parallel Dimensions
- Words: Sean O'Neal
- Label: Ubiquity
Originally released in 2000 on Theo Parrish's own Sound Signature imprint, Parallel Dimensions was limited to a measly 1,000 CDs. Fortunately, the Ubiquity peeps are fixed on reintroducing these nine tracks of moody bliss and ultra-deepness-each based around one infectious loop that hardly changes. Soft, syncopated house beats and choppy Afro-rhythms are buried inside a saturating blanket of jazzy pianos, Detroit synth strings, soul-oozing vocal snippets and wobbly basslines. Although rich and soothingly organic-feeling, Parallel Dimensions is quieter and more lo-fi than the average Parrish release. But nonetheless, the listening experience is heartwarmingly spiritual and downright mesmerizing.
