Todd Terry

Todd Terry is one of the producers who helped to define New York’s house music during the 1980s. Terry’s productions can be described as a varied collection of samples blending the sounds of classic disco, the more introspective Chicago sound pioneered earlier in the decade, plus plenty of hip-hop attitude and sampling.

Todd has been engulfed in dance music since he first started listening to European dance music records while growing up in Brooklyn. Already devoted to turntables, he heard something different in those tracks and he ‘went for the difference. I never got a break in New York, but England happened right away so I catered to them.’ In any event, the Todd Terry sound was born. By 1988, Todd Terry hit big in Europe and his notoriety was making its way back to US.

In addition to DJ appearances, Todd was cutting his classic underground tracks ‘A Day In The Life’, ‘Weekend’ and’ Can You Party’, released under monikers such as the Todd Terry Project, House Of Gypsies and Royal House, all considered essential and ground breaking. Nowadays Todd is one of the world’s most celebrated figures in dance music. With almost two decades of dance floor domination under his belt, the quality of his productions goes from strength to strength. And he releases on esteemed labels like Clone as well as many others. Welcome to the church of house music presided over by Our Lord Todd. Are you a believer?
