“Collectors take note: Peacefrog has decided to reissue Theo Parrish's timeless - and much in-demand - debut album, First Floor. Like the original 1998 release, the album is spread over two separately sold double-packs. This first volume contains some of Parrish's strongest work, including the evocative, stretched-out shuffle of "First Floor Metaphor" (all undulating synth bass, dusty deep house beats and sublime string samples), the Luther Vandross-sampling brilliance of "Only The Beginning", the fuzzy hip-hop/beatdown fusion of "Sweet Sticky", and the deep jazz-house brilliance of "Love Is War For Miles". In other words, it's all killer, no filler, but you probably knew that already.” - Juno Records

“First Floor includes the complete contents of the two EPs Theo Parrish recorded for Peacefrog during 1998… the collection moves into a succession of excellent tracks ("Sweet Sticky," "Paradise Architects," "Electric Alley Cat," "JB's Edit") driven by distorted, scratchy, trance-like sample snippets borrowed from disco and jazz-funk. (The back cover even shows Parrish soaking in a bath of records with Ron Carter and Isaac Hayes LPs visible.) Parrish's ingenious use of drum programming and effects add-ons tie each track together just the way a great DJ should. It's the next best thing to seeing him spin.” – AllMusic
