TODD TERRY (X-Mix Productions/NYC)
Grammy Award nominated DJ/Producer Todd Terry has been engulfed in dance music since he first started listening to European dance music records while growing up in Brooklyn. Already devoted to turntables, he heard something different in those tracks, and he “went for the difference. I never got a break in New York, but England happened right away, so I catered to them.” In any event, the Todd Terry sound was born.
By 1988, Todd Terry hit big in England and Europe, and his notoriety was making its way back to the U.S. In addition to DJ appearances, Todd was cutting his classic underground tracks A Day In The Life, Weekend, and Can You Party, released under monikers such as the Todd Terry Project, House Of Gypsies, and Royal House, all considered essential and ground breaking.
In the mid 90’s, the Ministry of Sound’s eponymous UK label released A Day In The Life, a collection of Todd Terry tracks that had been causing dance floor panic. That then led the way to a deal with Mercury Records allowing him to set up a context in which to work with his favourite singers and performers. The first release, Keep On Jumpin’ on featured a vocal workout from super-divas Martha Wash and Jocelyn Brown, together for the first time ever. The song became a top 10 UK crossover pop hit and worldwide smash. Todd followed with the anthem ‘Somethin Going On’, a top 5 UK crossover pop hit.
All the while, Todd continued to break new ground as a Producer/Remixer. From SNAP to Annie Lennox to George Michael to Bjork, Todd’s mixes bridge the ground between club cool and commercial accessibility. In 1995, his remix for Everything But The Girl’s Missing became a worldwide smash, giving the British duo their first ever hit. He then rode the charts with mixes for Garbage (Stupid Girl), The Cardigans (Love Fool), Everything But The Girl (Wrong), 10,000 Maniacs (More Than This), Jamiroquai (Alright), The Cardigans (Been It), and The Lightning Seeds (You Showed Me),.among others. He also produced a Robin S track (Givin’ You All That I’ve Got) for the multi-platinum Space Jam soundtrack.
Todd Terry All Stars feat. Kenny Dope, DJ Sneak, Terry Hunter, & Tara McDonald’s ‘Get Down’ was released in 2007 on Strictly Rhythm. This red hot single is the first proper original release on the re-launched legendary label.
‘Strictly Todd Terry’ compilation mixed by Todd Terry was released in 2007 on Strictly Rhythm. Todd’s mix follows installments by Masters at Work and Tiefschwarz in this newly launched series.
Todd is one of the world’s most celebrated figures in dance music. With almost two decades of dance floor domination under Todd’s belt the quality of his productions goes from strength to strength. Welcome to the church of house music presided over by Todd the God. Are you a believer?

Born in America raised in Mexico, Victor Hugo Ramos was born with rhythm in his veins. At the tender age of 16, he would sneak into clubs in Tijuana to soak in the waves of early inspiration. Driven by the sexy grooves of dance music, Victor decided to buy his first setup and began mixing songs that were making an irresistible impression on him. This forward-thinking mentality would soon become crucial in the development of the Harvard Bass sound.
Harvard Bass combines smooth, minimal beats and deep ghetto house grooves with corrosively addicting drum patterns. “Techyes”, an unforgettable collaboration with the legendary Green Velvet, harkens back to the glory days of techno while more recent releases such as, "Lazer Beams" (Relief Records) & "Plex" Dubfire's Sci-Tec Digital Label, incorporate this influence with other elements that come off as retro yet modern simultaneously.
With the release of his debut album "Stay True", Harvard Bass is extending his sound to others and ensuring that the scene stays fresh with his creative sound. Constant praise pouring in from respected DJs such as Green Velvet, Dubfire, Richie Hawtin, Gene Farris, Modeselektor, Boys Noize, Tiga, and DJ Pierre salutes the burgeoning musical niche that is taking form, with Harvard Bass at the forefront. Harvard Bass has been cemented as a force to be reckoned within House, Techno music and beyond.
