Parrish Smith (NL)


No elit­ism, no prej­u­dices, no genre, hyp­not­ic, tense, com­pre­hen­si­ble, a state of mind. Whilst cap­ti­vat­ing audi­ences with music that is both intense and hyp­not­ic, Par­rish Smith embarks on a rather suc­cess­ful jour­ney of cre­at­ing spaces where walls are torn down and prej­u­dices are non-existent. Dur­ing this unique ven­ture into the broad spec­trum of elec­tron­i­ca, Smith is able to dis­play his take on var­i­ous lay­ers of elec­tron­ic music with extreme per­cep­tive subtlety. These uniques spaces cre­at­ed by Par­rish Smith are char­ac­ter­ized by his deter­mi­na­tion to design music that escapes the hold and bias­es found in con­tem­po­rary tech­no. His music enables you to think dif­fer­ent­ly whilst let­ting go of any nar­row-mind­ed and lim­it­ed perspectives. Emo­tion and inten­si­ty are the true pre­dom­i­nant fac­tors in Par­rish Smith’s music. These two cat­a­lysts come to fruition in, not only con­tem­po­rary tech­no but even enable Par­rish to maneu­ver him­self amongst dif­fer­ent styles of music. From film scor­ing to sound­tracks, Par­rish Smith rec­og­nizes that his strength comes from com­bin­ing emo­tion and inten­si­ty, thus result­ing in projects that are inspi­ra­tional in their truest form. Both the projects Par­rish Smith and the col­lab­o­ra­tion with Mark van de Maat as the elu­sive and non-com­pro­mis­ing Voli­tion Imma­nent suc­ceed in reach­ing the ulti­mate goal: uni­fy­ing peo­ple by cre­at­ing spaces where they can be engulfed in music that is free of any bias or prejudice. Elit­ism is for the weak. It is para­mount that you always stay true to your­self and your music. Fol­low­ing these major mantras, Par­rish Smith rep­re­sents a beau­ti­ful and true exam­ple of the punk mentality.
