Some people have come a long way…Literally… Born in Jakarta, Indonesia in era of bad fashion, bad politics and even worse Roxette Terry still managed to survive the 80s filtering out the mullets, leggings and shoulder pads and taking the innovative and cutting edge mentality from the original upcoming Detroit techno and Chicago house scene along to the next decades. Needless to say that this music became his original inspiration and is the base to what Terry’s sound has evolved in today.
As one of the key players behind Amsterdam based party organisation ElectroNation Terry Toner has gradually built his name as a household force in the European electronic music scene. 2008 has definitely been Terry’s year up to date. With 2 critically acclaimed releases which have been supported by international powerhouses like Laurent Garnier, Carl Cox, Roger Sanchez, Tiefschwarz, Dubfire, Slam, Fedde Le Grand, Gregor Tresher, John Digweed, Sasha, Danny Howells, Tom Novy, Mason and many others he finally seems to fulfil his prodigal expectations and with more releases planned for the rest of the year there’s no reason to see it stopping.
Besides producing Terry’s Dj schedule been as hectic as one can be spanning the entire European continent. Already being a proven name in his home country of Holland it became time to span the energy and magic of Terry’s dj sets throughout the rest of the world resulting in several international residencies in various A-listed location like The EGG (London), Sugar Factory (Amsterdam) and as Belgium always seems to have a special connection with Terry’s carreer up to date he’s very enthousiastic to start hosting together with Electronation the last Friday of the month at one of Belgiums original ‘housetemples’ Café D’Anvers in Antwerp. November the 27th 2008 will see the release party of the Balearic mix Terry made for Marc Romboy’s label Systematic at Café D’Anvers (Antwerp), just in time to head south the next day to perform at the Groovecity festival in Brussels.
Besides these residencies his dj schedule have been filled with several key performances in various places and venues like Sonar (Barcelona), Fuse (Brussels), Ministry of Sound (London), Soundplanet (Kiev), Paradiso (Amsterdam), Dancevalley, Mysterland and numerous other places where his energetic sound has touched dancefloors into electronic frenzies.
