Subculture is our 9th studio album, featuring some truly amazing guest vocalists and performers including:

Marcella Detroit (Shakespeares Sister, Absolutely Fabulous, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band),
Johanna Gervin,
Louise Love,
Peter Wilson,
A7-H,
Lillia and
Ian Burden (The Human League).

The Subculture album is divided into Side A (Red) and Side B (Blue).
What do the colours mean? We took a leaf from one of our favourite bands (The Human League) and colour coded the songs according to their style. Red is for Dance and Blue is for Pop.
We've been busy working on Subculture for the last year, and we are all so proud and pleased to finally release it to the world! There are a variety of styles on the album, but the main influence here is Italodisco, with a dash of 80s and 90s dance.

Holiday '16 is the latest installment in our annual cover album series and our 10th studio album.
Louise Love features on the album. Holiday '16 includes a variety of our favourite songs. Trust me when I say we had a short-list of over 50 songs to choose from, so it was difficult to narrow down on a final selection. But thankfully it means we have several more years worth of songs to make!

Remixes 2 is a collection of remixes that Parralox has made for other artists. This is a Limited Edition CD available ONLY with the purchase of the Deluxe Edition of Subculture (now sold out).

In 2017 the first single released from Subculture will be Electric Nights, feat Johanna Gervin on lead vocals, with Roxy, Johnny X and Louise Love on backing vocals. There will be an EP released with many amazing remixes, and so far we can confirm remixes from Pete Hammond (Stock/Aitken/Waterman), Will Alonso, Oren Amram, People Theatre and Bluepint with many more to come.

So it's going to be a very musical Xmas and an even better 2017!

Much love..

John, Johanna & Louise.

We've just released the first in a series of remix EPs. This first volume features Will Alonso from New York, who has been remixing Parralox since we first began.

Each track has been specially remastered for this release, and the EP also includes unreleased instrumental versions of all the tracks.

Click this link for information about the EP as well as links to buy it on all good digital stores >> http://www.parralox.com/discography/singles/remix-series-volume-1-will-alonso

We also have plans to release this on physical CD via conzoom Records, so stay tuned for news on that.

And (but wait there's more!) we are finalising the tracklisting for our new album Subculture as well as Holiday '16. We're aiming to have the tracklisting finalised by this weekend.

New page on website - Equipment!

article 2016 09 14 equipment page added

We've just created a new page - Equipment! It includes a list of all the hardware synths, drum machines and outboard gear we use to make our music. It's not a full kit list, and we will be adding stuff as we go. It doesn't include VSTi / soft synths, otherwise it would be an insanely massive list!!
You can see pretty photos of all the gear too, on the photos page.

But for a consise list of equipment - head on over to this page >> www.parralox.com/about/equipment
