Special Message to Promoters in Ontario Canada (Open Date in Toronto 2-13-2016)

Hello to my friends in Canada.

On Friday February 12, 2016 I am DJing at Stereo Bar in Montreal.
I was scheduled to DJ a party in Toronto on Saturday February 13. Unfortunately that promoter lost his venue and the party has been canceled. Because plans have already been made, I will be in Toronto on the night of Saturday February 13 looking for a cool event to play. I am also open to DJ in Guelph, Hamilton, London, Chatham, or other areas in Ontario on February 13.
If you are a promoter interested to have me DJ at your event you may contact me at or visit

Thank you.

Terrence Parker - "Pentecost" (remixes by Traumer & Terrence Parker)

"Pentecost" featured on Terrence Parker's 2014 album 'Life on the Back 9', and this single features three remixes of the track; one from Terrence himself and two from French producer Traumer. Terrence Parker's Acts 2-1 Remix stays close to the original, maintaining the style that conveys the positivity of the church inspired lyrics with music designed for the dancefloor. The Traumer Remix has a far darker tone as the higher pitched intense backing from the original is replaced with a deep baseline and tribal sounding drum beat, offering a different type of intensity. Traumer's Reduced Remix is a completely stripped down version of his previous remix, with the spoken vocal removed whilst maintaining the tribal sounding drum to create a dark, techno track. 

"Pentecost" is available today at:

"Life On The Back 9" hits number # 1 on Traxsource Top 100 Album Chart


Legendary Detroit Producer, Remixer, and DJ Terrence Parker's "Life On The Back 9"album has reached the number # 1 spot on the Traxsource Top 100 Album Chart. This album was originally released in January 2014 on the Detroit based label Planet E which is owned and operated by Carl Craig, with an expanded version of the album released in November 2014 on the London based label Defected Records. "Life On The Back 9" expanded version features remixes by Louie Vega, Marc Romboy, Mark Flash, TimeLine (UR), and Black Catalogue, with previously unreleased remixes by Merachka, House Of Praise, and Terrence himself.

Described variously as an innovator, a champion of soulful house music and a true ‘DJs DJ’, Terrence Parker has touched and inspired many hearts over the course of his long and illustrious career. A Detroit pioneer for a style of music that perhaps doesn’t naturally fit with his city of origin, Parker has thrived on pushing boundaries both in the studio and behind the decks, and his latest album, Life On The Back 9, further cements his legacy. 

Says Parker of the re-release: “It has been a dream of mine to have a release on Defected because I have always admired their quality releases. Since the 90's, I have always played at least two or three records from Defected in my DJ sets.This album has close personal meaning for me and to have it released on Defected is an overwhelming honor.”

Terrence Parker open for DJ Bookings (Fall/Winter 2014)

Detroit producer & DJ Terrence Parker is available for DJ bookings. There are several dates available (including New Year's Eve) and some with flight shares. For more info contact:
Below is info about Terrence’s landmark release on Defected Records.

Detroit legend Terrence Parker makes his Defected debut this autumn with ‘Open Up Your Spirit’, a release that includes four brand new mixes of one of the standout cuts from his Life On The Back 9 album. 

Kicking off proceedings is TP’s Deeep Detroit Heat Remix which demonstrates positivity through Merachka’s powerful gospel vocal and an ever-grooving baseline that is mirrored by organ keys, highlighting why Terrence, and Detroit’s underground house scene, is very much in the forefront of soulful house being done the right way. TP’s Bangin Piano Remix does what is says on the tin as classic piano chords and four-to-the-floor house beats build the track to almost cacophonic extreme before dropping into a warm bass synth to start the ride over again. On the flipside is TP's Deeep Detroit Heat Instrumental and completing the pack is Merachka's Kreep Into Your Spirit And Open It Up Remix which strips things back with 303-esque acid lines and thumping kick-claps.

The release of ‘Open Up Your Spirit’ precedes the re-release of the aforementioned Life On The Back 9 album, a landmark signing for Defected having seen a prior release on Carl Craig’s legendary Planet E. This new 2CD and digital release will make available a host of remixes that were previously vinyl-only, including reworkings of the album’s track by Louie Vega, Carl Craig, and Parker himself. In addition, the digital version of Life On The Back 9 will include a further nine bonus tracks.

Terrence, an artist and producer whose stunning studio album Life On The Back 9 will be released on Defected Records in November, will also be making his Defected In The House debut at the Ministry Of Sound on November 1st. As a DJ, Parker has built an incredible reputation with his phenomenally skilful turntablism style of performance.
Open Up Your Spirit is out 22 September (vinyl) and 20 October (digital) on Defected Records. Life On The Back 9 is out 02 November on Defected Records.  
Terrence Parker plays Ministry of Sound for Defected In The House Saturday 01 November.
