Detroit has been credited as one of the Soul Music capitals of the world, spawning legendary artists like The Four Tops, Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross just to name a few. In the mid 1980s, Detroit's Underground Music Movement has brought rise to artists such as Derrick May, Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson, Blake Baxter, Eddie "Flashin" Fowlkes, UR, Jeff Mills, and a host of others. But unlike the aforesaid names, Terrence Parker has established himself as a producer, remixer and DJ of the classic sound of Detroit House Music, and is known as the pioneer of the music genre known as “Inspirational House Music”! As a DJ, Terrence Parker (known to many as "TP") has become legendary for his quite uncommon yet skillful turntablism style of playing House Music. TP has also become widely admired because he uses an actual telephone handset as headphones.  

Terrence has performed as a DJ in 36 countries throughout the world and has released more than 100 recordings on his Intangible Records label and various labels including Sony, Defected, Nervous, Kingstreet, and Purple Music. Terrence has top 20 hits with his songs "Love's Got Me High", "The Question" and albums like “Life On The Back 9” and "Detroit After Dark".  

Terrence has two album projects coming by the end of 2016. The album “GOD Loves Detroit” is scheduled to be released in the Fall/Winter of 2016 on Planet E Communications (Detroit). This new album features TP collaborations with Coco Street, and additional projects with Merachka (who co-produced, co-wrote, and sings on the first single entitled “Don’t Waste Another Minute” which also features a remix by London’s As I Am). The album “Motor City Life” is also scheduled to be released later in 2016 on Goldmin Records (Paris) which features a collection of unreleased versions of house and hip hop (downtempo) tracks. 

Terrence’s 2014 album entitled, “Life On The Back 9” released in January 2014 on Carl Craig’s Planet E label in Detroit was rereleased as an expanded remix album in November 2014 on Defected Records in London. This album which in its debut reached number # 1 on the Traxsource Top 100 Albums Sales Chart, tells the story of how he was encouraged by his father to continue on forward by the struggles and challenges of life. The album features the writing contributions and vocal performances by Merachka, Coco Street, Kelly Gunn, Reno Ka, and features remixes by Carl Craig, Underground Resistance/Timeline, Louie Vega, Josh Milan, Monty Luke, Marc Romboy, Merachka, House Of Praise and Terrence Parker.

Terrence's high quality of music productions, remixes, and DJ skill has been recognized by organizations such as the Detroit Historical Museum's History of Techno International Exhibit, and Indiana State University's Department Of African American Music And Culture. TP's collective musical works and pioneering efforts have been recognized as a valuable contribution to Detroit's music history, as well as the International History Dance Music. 

TP's incredible DJing talents have been heard on radio networks throughout the world such as on Superfly FM in Vienna/Austria, Channel 955 FM’s "The Pulse" (Detroit's No # 1 Pop/Urban FM Radio Station) and FM 98 WJLB's "Club Insomnia" Mix Show (Detroit’s # 1 Hip Hop Station). 

Terrence is also a well respected remixer. His most recent remix projects include I Am X & Coco Street (Donda Recordings), Dantiez Saunderson (KMS Records), Lenny Fontana (Karmic Power Records), Jonathan Kiely & Niall Redmond (Deeptown Music), Nicole Hunt (NoSOULrobot), tlJN & Dudley Strangeways (Frole Records), Light To Motion (BodyTalk Music), Brian Logstrup & Thomas Stiller (Deso Records), Andrew Hartley & Rashaan Houston (Rejoice Records), and Pongo (Astral People Music).TP has also remixed Mark Fanciulli’s, “Sacrifice” on Saved Records/UK, Yotam Avni featuring Chris Dockins’ “That’s What The World Needs” on Seasons Records/USA, and Rotvic’s “Classic Age” on D-Edge Records/Brazil. Terrence’s major label remixed projects include artists such as Kelly Rowland, Vickie Winans, Carmen, Lyfe Jennings, Michelle Williams, Trinitee 5:7, Omarion feat. Bow Wow, Tiffany Evans feat Ciara, Wyclef feat Akon, Beyonce & Shakira, Kanye West, Christina Aguilera, Shaun Escoffery, Ce Ce Winans, Dr. Charles Hayes & The Cosmopolitan Church Of Prayer Choir, Amerie, Chris Brown, Anointed Pace Sisters, and Upper Street.
