"Inky Blacknuss, Two Sandwiches short of a Lunchbox [R&S], Angular Art [Infonet], an acclaimed album Kiss My Arp on Mo' Wax.... these are some of the many projects in which you may find Aandrea Parker's touch as composer. Beside an impressive discography, she is of course, a unique DJ, find traces of her ability in the Studio! K7 'DJ Kicks' series. another aspect of her work is the art of 'remixes': Depeche Mode, Patrick Pulsinger, Lamb, Mira Calix (Warp) , The Orb, Tipper, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Steve Reich... another non-exhaustive list. Along with live work with Philip Glass and Bang On A Can. How to define Andrea Parker's particular electronic universe? One might think about some amplified heartbeats recorded during a tribal ceremony, some dry waves of sounds recycled from Andrea's environment, floating sonic ghosts grabbed from vintage machines. If you listen closely, depth is obvious. In the forefront, bass, snares, hats and other rhythmical elements are moving in some kind of molecular agitation, creating a massive structure in which the subtle abstract touches are floating in a non-randomatic disorder. This is surely the purest electro sound you'll find, but don't expect Andrea Parker to make music for dancefloor addicts only. These tracks are ready to make you move, but the more you pay attention the more you get. This might be the missing link in the mutually exclusive worlds of 'techno' and 'experimental music', now breathing side by side. danger is a duty."
