Brooklyn, NYC United States
One of the quintessential NYC dance music producers who shaped an era of house. Ladies and gentlemen, Todd “The God” Terry!
_(artist-name)Todd Terry_ is one of the quintessential NYC dance music producers - for more than 25 years. Born in Brooklyn, Todd Terry is as much New York as it gets. Blessed with the instinct, aesthetic and freedom that comes with hip hop, he created a unique brand of house music. Heavy on the sample tip and always aimed directly at the dancefloor, his earliest records like _(song-title)Bango_, _(song-title)A Day In The Life_ or _(song-title)Can You Party_ set the parameters for his musical universe. Graced with an unmistakable sound signature, the house sound of Todd Terry is one of the essential reference points of this music - you just know a Todd Terry beat when you hear it. Citing classic disco, rock or funk records throughout his works, Terry’s tracks were as much in favour with US-American DJ heavyweights like _(artist-name)Tony Humphries_ as they were with the hyped-up club music crowds on the UK island. Todd Terry’s effectiveness spread further through his several aliases like _(artist-name)Gypsymen_ or _(artist-name)CLS_, and records like _(artist-name)Jungle Brothers_’ seminal _(song-title)I’ll House You_, his classic chart-topping remix for _(artist-name)Everything But The Girl_’s _(song-title)Missing_, and his very own version of _(song-title)Keep On Jumpin’_. His labels TNT and Freeze released a nitty-gritty range from vocal house to hip hop instrumentals and disco cut-ups, as well as his infamous _(album-title)Unreleased Projects_.
