Terrence Parker is a name that requires little introduction to most, boasting a sprawling discography of over 100 recordings and remixes, an inimitable turntablist DJ style and a tour history that has taken him across the globe and back again. He’s a true veteran of the underground house scene, both in his hometown of Detroit and beyond.
‘Finally (Baby Be Mine)’, his latest effort on Carl Craig’s legendary Planet E imprint is a bouncing, sun-dappled house number with a vibrant New Jersey twist. Its irresistibly catchy vocal refrain is propelled forward by uplifting piano chords and shimmering strings, bearing all the trademark signs of a summer anthem.
The release comes with an extended instrumental edit from Carl under his C2 alias, and a full reworking from Louie Vega (of Masters At Work fame) on the flip. Vega takes the effervescent pluck of the original and kneads it out into a heady, ten minute Detroit-style workout whilst managing to keep the vocal fully intact.
