Thats when a few years later, I knew in my heart this is what I was born to do. Having the influence of music all around him, at a time when the Chicago house music scene was on the verge of an international explosion, Terry debuted onto the scene with his first release, a house track entitled Madness. I created a big buzz on the record by playing it myself at various parties," Terry states, It started out as a basement track, but became much more. Having made an impact on the local scene with his first track, he moved on to create a style of spinning that consisted of collaborating great songs with a unique soulful presence. Being one of the masterminds behind UBQ, he then teamed up with Music Plant, a music production and talent management company.
Terry began DJing throughout the world enlightening his fans with his signature sound which has become a blueprint for many DJs to follow. During these travels, various musical influences abroad expanded his outlook, which allowed him to include some of it into his production. Terry has lent his production talents to classics such as When I Fell In Luv, Sweet Music, Out on the Dance Floor and the club crossover anthem from Georgie Porgie, Life Goes On. He has also remixed tracks for artists such as Michael Jackson, Twista, Mary J. Blige, and Masters At Work.
Terry has also co-written tracks with Raheem DeVaughn, You (Jive), Syleena Johnson, And He Makes Me Say (Jive) and Rhymefest Mr. Bluecollar (J Records). Alongside longtime friend Kenny Dope, Terry also remixed the Kanye West track Addiction (Dope Wax), which has become a staple in DJ record crates. An active member of the Violator All Star DJs, Terry is excited about his work with fellow Chi-town native Rhymefest. The two have formed Plugg City an outlet for Chicago hip hop and R&B.
Terry has also been instrumental in the development of Twone Gabz an up and coming Chicago hip hop artist. Asked about the future, Terry declares, I see myself with plenty of hit records while trying to educate the younger generation to appreciate musicianship along with their own individual style.
