Multi-talented Chicago native—Terry began spinning records at the age of 16 in 1978. He has held residencies in legendary clubs from east to west coast of USA. Terry lived 6 years in LA and Hawaii —playing at hot 80’s venues like Wave Waikiki, Hungry I and Pink Cadillac. During the mid-eighties, he introduced the Hawaii nightclub dance floors to house music.

Late 1986, he moved back to Chicago just in time to experience the peak of the Chicago House music wave. In 1987, he moved to Baltimore and began his quest to spread the Chicago House music vibe. Over the years, he has played at various venues along local DC/Baltimore dj heroes like The Basement Boys, Sam “The Man” Burns, Mandrill, Archie Lucas, Reggie Wilson, Karizma, DJ Spen, Charles Feelgood, Scott Henry, DJ Oji, DJ Pope, 95 North, and Deep Dish. He quickly became the new kid on the block out of Chicago with a new sound. In 1988, Terry hosted his first major party at the famed nightclub Cignel in Baltimore. He booked Chicago’s Hot Mix 5 Dj Mickey “Mixin” Oliver to headline the event. That was to beginning of over 3 decades of events and parties hosted/dj’ed by Terry.

In 2006, Terry’s track Strangelove was voted #2 in West End Records’ 2006 International talent search contest. Terry’s productions are pumping up-tempo house music with a heavy influenced disco from his Chicago high-energy days. That same year, Terry teamed up with vocalist Lisa Mack along with Grammy nominated music producers, DJ Spen and Thommy Davis to release “Shine” on Defected Records. Pete Tong featured “Shine” as the new essential tune on his weekly BBC Radio 1 show. The track became an instant smash hit, played by dis all over the world including Bob Sinclair, Pete Tong, and Roger Sanchez. It was licensed on multiple compilations including the Defected in the House Miami 2007 Album/CD.

In 2008, with another co-production with DJ Spen and Thommy Davis, Terry release the single “Magic” featuring vocals by Shelia Ford and DJ Spen. This jackin’ track received major spin action from dis like Tony Humphries, Tedd Patterson, CJ McIntosh, and the Groove Junkies. The same year, Terry launched is annual WMC Future Classics Party with a smashing lineup of dj talent from around the globe. It quickly grew as a major WMC event for 6 years, held at venues like Nikki Beach and the National Hotel with headliners including Crystal Waters, Ultra Nate, Danny Tenaglia, Paul Oakenfold, Tony Humphries, Tedd Patterson, and many more.

These days, Terry continues his infectious blend of disco, house and global dance floors gems. His after-hours parties at the Factory 17 in Baltimore are a throw back to the glory days of underground disco, nu-disco and house with his own signature twist that has made him a local favorite for so many year. His current mix shows on MasterMixersatWork Radio and 90.5 FM Ibiza are an amazing blend of 70s Disco, 80s Disco and 90s House. He always surprise his audience with amazing lost disco tracks and dance floors gems.
