Spencer Parker returns to Radio Slave’s Rekids with ‘The Theme’ EP, possibly the DJ/producer’s most distinctive single to date. Comprising three originals and a remix from Pink Concrete, the EP sees the Berlin-based Brit delve further into his ‘80s new wave influences hinted at in his recent ‘The Love And Sex’ EP for HE.SHE.THEY.
First track ‘Theme’ has piano licks, digital strings and soaring choral swells, a possibly anthemic piece. ‘Radio Waves (After Dark)’ sees staccato synth leads play off a bass while the vocal sample and aesthetic recall some of Parker’s work under his It’s Not Over pseudonym.
Closing is the arpeggio driven ‘The Work Out’, a late-night cut displaying his penchant for high energy arrangements.
Prague’s Pink Concrete rounds out the EP with a driven but melodic techno interpretation of ‘Theme’.
‘The Theme’ EP by Spencer Parker is released on Rekids 12 February.
