As a teenager Terence :Terry: was hanging out at the first raves of Paris in a warehouse on the outskirts of the city. There, he discovered a mélange of dance genres and a passion for diverse sounds that would inspire him to take to the decks, and influence him throughout the rest of his music career.
Feeding his desire for original, rare cuts, Terence became a fixture at Paris’ famous flee-market Puces of Clignancourt,dealing in second-hand warehouse vinyl he had found on trips to London. But always seeking something new, he would often sneak away from his shop in search of jazz, soul, hip-hop and funk records to expand his ever-growing music collection.
Steadily building his name as a DJ/producer on the underground scene in Paris, Terence secured a number of residencies including ‘Afterparty Is Not A Crime’ at Nouveau Casino, one of the most hyped afterparties around in 2003/4, and later in 2009, ‘Oui Now’ at Djoon where he hosted alongside the likes of Tania Vulcano, Seth Troxler and Clive Henry. His close alliance with the famous Freak n’Chic label saw him spinning at the Batofar and Rex Club,whilst further afield his DJ’ing took him from DC10 Ibiza, to Panoramabar and Watergate in Berlin, Goa Madrid andFabric London. Branching out and wanting to immerse himself in a new scene, Terence moved for a few wild years from Paris to London, where he was embraced by the underground and regularly appeared at T-bar, Kubicle and Mulletover.
As well releasing on the highly-respected Freak n’Chic label, Terence :Terry:’s unique sound has been acknowledged by many house and techno imprints including 2020, Robsoul, Highgrade, Low Pitch, Overall and 1trax and has had hits with ‘Time Doesn’t Count’ (featured on the Cocoon Heroes 2011 Compilation) and ‘Additiv’.
In 2011 Terence felt it was time to launch his own label La Vie En Rose, quite simply to have a platform to develop and release a sound that could encompass a whole range of genres. Already on the third EP and with a crew of young talent on board, the latest is a re-release of the 2002 classic ‘Key of Love’ from U S H, while next up is ‘Background’ EP from Rafael Murillo feat. Jaw – the dOP singer known for his vocals on the 2011 summer bomb ‘Ultravision’.
On top of running his own label Terence :Terry: has just embarked on a new production duo with U S H, their bandWOMAN. The EP ‘Expansions of the Standard’ is due to drop on Fragil February 2012 and includes remixes from San Proper and Gerd. Also, watch out for a collaboration with Franck Roger coming soon on Real Tone Records and a remix for Midnight Pevert’s on Overall.
