The living legend, US house don, and international dance music taste-maker that is Todd Terry has just endorsed me (for PR) on LinkedIn! Now if that's not worth a blog piece of its own, I really don't know what is.
The Grammy-nominated DJ and producer has also, perhaps more importantly, just released a killer new track… 'Hold Your Head' is a slice of retro jacking house he's produced with a new-ish name (for me) on the block: J Paul Getto. Their Brooklyn-style beats make you wanna - well - just get up and jack your body. Sampling old-skool flavours, this latest effort by the duo is a sure-fire underground hit.
Todd Terry himself debuted as Masters At Work alongside 'Little' Louie Vega and Kenny 'Dope' Gonzalez way back in the 80s, and anyone who's had a love of true house cannot deny his place in dance music history as one of the all-time greats. In 2013, 'Todd the God' shows no signs of slowing down.
He's remixed everyone from Kylie, Duran Duran, Jungle Brothers, Ultra Nate and Annie Lenox - and here's one of my all-time faves, the club classic from Everything But the Girl 'Missing'. Choon!
Todd Terry and I go way back, back into time…
