Detroit Forward Mix

When Theo Parrish sat down to curate and sequence his contribution to !K7’s iconic DJ-Kicks series, he treated its 19 tracks as a fully invested survey of the city that’s as much a part of him as music itself. “Detroit creates, but rarely imitates,” Parrish says in his track notes, “Why?
