MARCELLUS PITTMAN , FAT DOG, NICK TURNER
After a rather special night had by all at THEO PARRISH a few weeks ago.....
Werk move to the Basement to complete the bank holiday program with one member of the 3 Chairs and Detroit heavyweight DJ/Producer Marcellus Pittman.......
Marcellus has never played in the north east before and as a collective we have wanted to get him for many years, finally that day has come........ The two times I have seen with the 3 Chairs id be lying if I say he didn't steal the show......
Werk host the 1st of various 'In the Basement' parties @ Inside Out in the Pawn Shop. The Basement is intimate, dark and has nice low ceilings... It goes hand in hand with the Werk Vibe, and to get
Mr.Pittman down there for our 1st guest is a sheer delight!!!
This is DEEP DARK DETROIT TECH IN THE BASEMENT.......... WE WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY!
WERK (IN THE BASEMENT PARTY I)

When other children were playing combat with G.I. Joe action figures in the early 80’s, Detroit native Marcellus “Malik” Pittman was playing his radio at maximum volume, listening to the sounds of “the Wizzard” and the “Electrifying Mojo”, in addition to the jazz outputs of Rosetta Hines.
Malik began his DJ pursuits for college parties, wedding receptions, “old school parties” in the early 90’s. In 1993, Malik released his initial work of production with local Hip-Hop collective “Home Grown”.
Shortly thereafter, he released “Essential Selections, Vol. 1” on the Sound Signature label, headed by Theo Parrish. In 1998, Malik forged a working relationship with Rick Wilhite, Theo Parrish and Kenny “Moodymann” Dixon, collectively known as the 3 Chairs. As production artists and selectors, they have helped to define an integral part of the Detroit sound.Malik’s sound has been around the Detroit and surrounding areas, as well as internationally, spanning Canada, the UK, Germany, Japan and Paris.
His dedication to production ushered the discontinuation of his latest residency with Northern Lights in Detroit. Malik is currently heading his own label, Unirhythm, which will release his upcoming projects.
