Engulfed in dance music since he first started listening to European dance records while growing up in Brooklyn, Todd Terry has been a force in dance music for over a quarter century. Hitting it big in England and Europe by 1988, Terry's notoriety began making its way back to the U.S. 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.
In the mid 90s, the Ministry of Sound's eponymous UK label released "A Day In The Life", a collection of Todd Terry tracks that had been causing dance floor panic. That then led the way to a deal with Mercury Records allowing him to set up a context in which to work with his favorite singers and performers. In 1995, his remix for "Everything But The Girls Missing" became a worldwide smash. He then rode the charts with mixes for Garbage ("Stupid Girl"), The Cardigans ("Love Fool" & "Been It"), 10,000 Maniacs ("More Than This"), Jamiroquai ("Alright"), and The Lightning Seeds ("You Showed Me"),.among others. He also produced a Robin S track ("Givin' You All That I've Got") for the multi-platinum Space Jam soundtrack.
