The Dance division of Phoenix was born out of our strategic acquisitions of key dance labels going back to our inception in 2004. At present the dance division is made up of the following companies and their sub labels: Azuli Back Catalogue, Renaissance Recordings, Resist Music, Deviant Records and Neo records.
As part of growing and maximising digital revenue from the sale of our products through various online portals, we continue to re-brand our rich back catalogue through new series and products made available through the key digital stores.
Phoenix signs Theo Parrish
11 September 2013
Phoenix Music International is most pleased and excited to announce we have signed the publishing of the Detroit enigmatic legend Theo Parrish, and his label catalogue Sound Signature.
Since the mid 90s Theo Parrish has been creating house and disco and soul and techno or in my opinion a unique creative individual translation of all of the above . Although Washington born and Chicago raised, Theo has been a central figure in the Detroit independent music scene, releasing his unique brand of deep soul inflected musical expressions for the dancefloor and for the discerning ear. A graduate in sculpture, Theo brings a holistic approach to making music – “When you're dealing with 3D work, you're dealing with volume, height, density. With sound, you're dealing with almost the same things except you're dealing with the time element too”.
With Tony Allen, Moodyman, Carl Craig, IG Culture, Eska, Ricardo Wilhite and more recently with Andrew Ashong and Fat Freddy’s Drop, Theo has worked with the best all shores have to offer.
As his only ever publisher Phoenix Music International is proud to represent a true originator.
