Top 20 Essential Todd Terry Tracks

On Thursday May 10th, Dancing Room Only celebrates its 2nd birthday and we’ve teamed up with Forward Disco and invited our friend Todd Terry to help us commemorate. “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 Bango, A Day In The Life or 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 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 Gypsymen or CLS, and records like Jungle Brothers’ seminal I’ll House You, his classic chart-topping remix for Everything But The Girl’s Missing, and his very own version of 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 Unreleased Projects.” -RBMA

 

With a career spanning 25 years and many monikers, it was extremely difficult to narrow down a list of 20 tracks from Todd Terry that we love and we can easily add another 20 but here we go…..In no specific order.
