Todd Terry
Todd Terry
Born 18th April 1967 in Brooklyn, New York, pioneering American house producer & DJ, Todd Terry is one of the producers who helped to define New York's house music during the 1980s. Terry's productions can be described as a varied collection of samples blending the sounds of classic disco, the more introspective Chicago sound pioneered earlier in the decade, plus plenty of hip-hop attitude and sampling piracy.
Much of Todd Terry's early work in the late 1980s is considered a milestone in the development of both progressive and modern deep house. Todd Terry has been responsible for releasing two of the most respected crossover remixes of the house era: "I'll House You" by the Jungle Brothers and "Missing" by Everything But The Girl by the mid 1990s.
Among his fans, Todd Terry is known as 'Todd the God', 'God Terry', 'Todd Godrry', 'Godd Gerry' (or, occasionally, simply 'God', because he might be a Five Percenter, but this is unconfirmed).
Todd's tracks "Something Goin' On" and "Keep on Jumpin'" were both UK Top 10 hits as well as US Hot Dance Music/Club Play #1s, with the vocals provided by Jocelyn Brown and Martha Wash. Freestyle diva Shannon was the featured vocalist on the Top 20 hit "It's Over Love" in 1997.
In 1999, Todd Terry released "Resolutions", successfully embracing the then-still avant-garde drum 'n' bass aesthetics.
Terry has used several aliases such as Swan Lake, Orange Lemon, Royal House, Black Riot, CLS, Masters At Work (2) (although he later gave this moniker to Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez & Louie Vega in 1990), Dred Stock, House Of Gypsies, Lime Life, Hardhouse and the Gypsymen.
Todd Terry became one of the best-paid DJs in both Europe and the United States. He normally performs on four turntables, mostly playing his own tracks.

Used to be managed by Gary Salzman (2).

Born and raised in what was once considered the mecca of house music, New York City, Rissa caught the music bug at a very early age."Music has and will always be the one constant in my life . Ever since I could remember there was music playing in my head. I grew up listening to all sorts of rhythms from Latin to jazz, R&B to soul, from house to rock and disco to funk.

Born and raised in what was once considered the mecca of house music, New York City, Rissa caught the music bug at a very early age."Music has and will always be the one constant in my life . Ever since I could remember there was music playing in my head. I grew up listening to all sorts of rhythms from Latin to jazz, R&B to soul, from house to rock and disco to funk. Years later I made my way into the club scene. I started to go clubbing at around 16 years old. My friends and I would happen to know the DJ that was playing and he could always get us in but at that time it was more about the partying and the whole going out with your friends thing. It wasn't so much about the music until early 2000. In 2000 is when I discovered my home, a whole in the wall called Vinyl with a DJ named Danny Tenaglia. I just fell in love with everything about that place and especially the music. My soul just seemed to come alive and it completely engulfed me. From the lights to the vibe to the dark walls and the sexiness in the air, this is exactly what I have been searching for this was my Paradise Garage. " Inspired by the man who poured his heart and soul into his music,along with many others who do the same, I began to collect records and learn how to dj. My first gig back in 2004 was at a small lounge on the lower east side and since then I have been lucky enough to have played some of the best venues in NY like Cielo,Love,Pacha,Rebel and PubIlic Assembly. In August of 2007, I started my own imprint NightChild records and over the past three years we have release over 20 EPs and continue to develop our sound and strive to bring you quality music from some talented young up and coming producers around the globe."

DJ/producer Rissa Garcia is Nightchild Records label boss and has an understanding of the beats that sets her apart from the crowd. Rissa Garcia offers a sound that is perfectly aligned with the high grade electronic beat that exemplifies the classy side of house music. Nightchild Sessions are pure quality and geared for true houselovers. The vibe is warm and friendly, never straying too far into the deepness and always skirting around the underground funk that makes her sets such a delight. Check out Rissa on Soundcloud or Facebook from running commentary on what she gets up to in the studio, you won’t be disappointed.
