Parrish Smith: RA Mix
Parrish Smith gives a masterclass in punk electronics for his Resident Advisor mix.
The Dutch-Surinamese artist, has become well known for his fusion of punk, metal and techno. A difficult blend to pull off, but he does so with flying colours.
In between filling dance-floors big and small, he has been working on many projects behind the scene. Partnering with Tropenmuseum and Het Beeld & Geluid Instituut Netherlands, he will make a limited edition album inspired by his roots with unheard, sound ethnography archive material from Suriname, China and India. As one of few artists working in such an experimental niche from a post-colonial background, he is already collaborating with other Dutch-Surinamese artists such as Natasja Kensmil and Orpheu The Wizard.
After releasing his debut album in 2022 on Dekmantel, Light, Cruel & Vain, he has been working on a live show with his band that will debut at Dekmantel Festival 2023.
