Part 4 begins with Parrish's "SS Translation" of Paul Randolph & Kathy Kosins "Be Like Me," a Gilles Peterson-endorsed soul jazz cut from the Motor City. It's easy to see why Parrish was attracted to this track. Kosins' lyrics, which use a Miles Davis quote as a jumping-off point, mirror the Detroit house producer's own views on music. Randolph and Kosins' original centers around a "Deep Burnt"-style chord progression, to which Parrish adds his own wild-style flair by turning it into a spiritual jazz epic anchored by a lumbering house beat.
A collaboration with Amp Fiddler, the trumpeter John Douglas and the vocalist Ideeyah, "Leave The Funk To Us" expands on a track from Gentrified Love Part 2. While the original was relatively streamlined, this version revels in loose improvisation. The result suggests what might have happened if Loose Joints made "It's All Over My Face" at a jazz club. They might not be classics, but Gentrified Love Part 4 captures Parrish's singular vision while reaffirming Sound Signature's community focus.
