Biography

Brooklyn, NY, USA (1987 – present)

Hardhouse is a pseudonym of Brooklyn, NY, USA, DJ / producer Todd Terry. He débuted, as Masters at Work, with 12” “Alright Alright” (1987, 4th Floor) - an edit from this, “Alright Alright”, was then included on vanguard compilation “Jackmaster 1” (1987, DJ International).

Terry began in the 1980s by DJing at parties in New York, playing Italian disco and hip hop, and later house music when it emerged in the middle of the decade. 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.

Terry also used several aliases such as Swan Lake, Orange Lemon, Royal House, and Black Riot. He has also recorded as CLS, Masters at Work (with Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez & “Little” Louie Vega), Dredd Stock, House of Gypsies, Limelife, Hard House, Tyme Forse, and the Gypsymen (where under that alias, scored a number-one Billboard Hot Dance/Club play hit in 1992 with “Hear the Music”).
