Gangstercast 67 comes from the NYC legend Todd Terry.
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. More than any other producer, Todd Terry defined New York house during the '80s, his sound is a varied sampladelic collection, blending the sounds of classic disco, the more introspective Chicago sound plus plenty of hip-hop attitude.
Much of Terry's early work, in the late 1980s, is considered a milestone in the development of both progressive and modern deep house, and with 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), Terry more than earned his title "Todd the God" . Terry’s success has followed him through the years and today Todd is one of the world’s most celebrated figures in dance music. With almost Threedecades of dance floor domination under Todd’s belt the quality of his productions goes from strength to strength
Terry produced the mix for Gangstercast 67 earlier this summer , he believes it to be one of his best old school/new school productions. He’s picked the tracks that he always play out in my live sets as they represent the best type of dance floor records, whether they’re are old or new. Terry likes to play as he puts it; ‘the best of both worlds’ meaning to play songs as well as hard tracks.
With Terry the House Gangster movement is all about the music , the raw swingy beats and good funky music.
“Right now house music is good to me, we had a big surge out of the past 3-4 years right before that I think we had some issues on what was house and not house so I am really happy where it has ended up” – Todd Terry
