-OMAR S. (FXHE, DETROIT)-
-ANTHONY PARASOLE (THE CORNER, DECONSTRUCT)
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Anthony Parasole has had a lifelong love affair with electronic music. Listening to radio shows playing the early dance tracks from New York, Chicago, and Detroit really perked up his ears. His earliest experiences at the New York clubs and Storm Raves really blew his mind wide open. Not content to just be another party kid, Anthony began scouring the record stores for all of his favorite tracks. From the late-80's to the mid- 90's, Parasole was also huge into hip-hop. His engulfment in this gritty New York street-music is an influence on his style to this day.
From 2003 to 2006, Anthony was a buyer at the Halcyon record store. Through Halcyon, a real pillar of the scene in NYC, Parasole made many contacts, and of course, multiplied the size of his record collection by carefully selecting all the best records from the store. He threw the New Jack City party at APT with his co-workers at Halcyon, bringing in The Martinez Brothers for the first NYC gig, Slam Mode, MkL, Adultnapper, Nick Chacona, Todd Sines, Brennan Green, and many more. This party really increased Anthony's exposure in New York, and led to many gigs at bigger clubs, including opening slots for Derrick May, Cajmere, and Layo and Bushwacka.
2008 was a great year for Anthony. He launched the Deconstruct record label with Levon Vincent. DEC-001 by Levon Vincent sold out in one week, and immediately put the label on the map, being charted by Marcel Dettmann, Shed, and Jan Krueger. Hardwax and other influential stores are clamoring for more! Parasole also founded the House-N-Home loft series with partner Bryan Kasenic. They've already thrown successful parties with Jus-Ed, Brothers' Vibe, DJ Qu, Fred P, and Adultnapper, and will play host to Move D and other artists from the cutting edge of house music in 2009.
In 2009, Anthony will be opening for Cassy at Made Events' new Save The Cannibals party on Valentine's Day. He also hopes to release some of his original productions on Jus Ed's Underground Quality label and Levon Vincent's Novel Sound imprint.
