Billy Love ‘Melloghettomental’

fist1

At some point in the last decade I remember reading an interview with a young Theo Parrish that I found so grievously pompous, that I scored a three point rubbish bin shot after four paragraphs.

It’d always seemed to me that he was a little too sure, and not substantial enough in his output. Yet over the last few years he has proved me and a host of other cynics wrong, with a slew of releases that have not just progressed house music, but pushed soul music itself forward.

In the last six months alone we’ve had not only his (dare I say it) catchy remix of LCD Soundsystem’s 45:33, but also this, the soon-to-be-classic Billy Love EP featuring this track,’Melloghettomental’.

Billy Love is the front man here, but TP is ostensibly the pilot, pushing a sound that is so uniquely his behind the boards. They’re a brilliant combination; Billy Love’s ghetto-vision vocals providing a glimmer of hope and aspiration against TP’s looming minor chords. Buy buy buy!
