In Session: Spencer Parker

A DJ who knows how to bring a party to its knees

For over a decade, Spencer Parker has been at the very top of his game.

He's the go-to guy for razor-sharp house and techno that's aimed squarely at the floor. And always with a good dose of fun and swagger that a lot of the harder stuff is usually missing, too.

Residing in Berlin, you'd expect Parker to be bringing his hard-hitting sound to Berghain and you'd be right. He's a regular at the hallowed venue and whether he's upstairs in Panorama Bar dropping glitzy disco and rugged house or downstairs shaking the walls as Brotherhood, his primarily techno alias, you can always expect a high energy set.

We've played his Boiler Room Berlin set from 2014 countless times because it's just so fucking joyous. Parker wears a beaming grin from ear-to-ear for the majority of the session as he plays a wildly eclectic mix of house, techno, electro and disco. He dances so much within the first 20 minutes that he breaks his headphones, but of course he soldiers on and delivers a blinder. That's pretty much the norm for an hour with him.

His discography is a sight to behold, as well. He started out life on C2 Records back in 2005 with the 'Open Your Eyes' EP but it's on Radio Slave's Rekids label where he's most prominent. As a regular contributor to the imprint's output alongside the likes of Nina Kraviz and Mr G, some of Parker's best tracks have dropped there.
