Detroit has been credited as one of the Soul Music capitals of the world, spawning legendary artists like The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross just to name a few. In the mid 1980s, Detroit's Underground Music Movement has brought rise to artists such as Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson, Blake Baxter, Eddie "Flashin" Fowlkes, UR, Jeff Mills, and a host of others. But unlike the aforesaid names, Terrence Parker has established himself as a producer, remixer and DJ of the classic sound of Detroit House Music, and is known as the pioneer of the music genre known as “Gospel/Inspirational House Music”! As a DJ, Terrence Parker (known to many as "TP") has become legendary for his quite uncommon yet skillful turntablism style of playing House Music. TP has also become widely admired because he uses an actual telephone handset as headphones; causing some to give him the nick name, "Telephone Man". TP has performed as a DJ in hundreds of cities in more than 25 countries throughout the world. These events range from night clubs (large and small) to music festivals with more that 100,000 people. Since 1988, TP has released more than 100 recordings on various labels, and has had top 20 hits with his songs "Love's Got Me High", "The Question" and albums like "Detroit After Dark" in the U.K., The Netherlands, Germany, and France. Terrence's high quality of music productions, remixes, and DJ skill has been recognized by organizations such as the Detroit Historical Museum's History of Techno International Exhibit, and Indiana State University's Department Of African American Music And Culture. TP's collective musical works and pioneering efforts have been recognized as a valuable contribution to Detroit's music history, as well as the International History Dance Music. TP's incredible DJing talents have been features on major FM radio stations such as Channel 955 FM’s "The Pulse" (Detroit's No # 1 Pop FM Radio Station), FM 98 WJLB's "Club Insomnia" Mix Show (Detroit's No # 1 Urban/Hip Hop Radio Station) and Detroit FM powerhouse 107.5 FM WGPR. TP produces his own popular DJ mix shows podcast which can be heard at www.terrenceparker.podomatic.com as well as guest mixes on FM, Internet, and Satellite/Digital Radio stations in various parts of Europe and Asia.
