To quote a classic Patti Labelle record-"Music is My Life..."
Mr Terror has been playing with records and turntables for as long as he can remember. He got his start at the tender age of four, picking 45s for his parents house parties in Brooklyn. Terror then graduated to making pause-button mixtapes, and got his first pair of turntables and a mixer at age 12. Terror then began doing house parties, block parties, and school dances, and tried his hand at production, landing a couple of tracks into heavy rotation at local underground radio stations.
The end of high school brought Mr Terror to the NYC Club circuit, and to his first experience at the Paradise Garage. The Garage would change Terror's perception of DJing and of how music can move people. "Ive never been much of a dancer, but after a little while, the music made you move your body-and time and space stopped and you became one with the beat and the vibe...." It also allowed Terror to witness firsthand the power of the DJ to control the crowd and take therm on a journey, a power that he has tried to harness whether it was spinning live at the World, the Island Lounge, Club Harambe, floating loft parties, or on mixtapes. Terror also brought his mixing skill to radio, where he DJed on many college and independent radio shows, and co-hosted the Xstacy show for 2 years.
These days, Mr Terror is focused on running his two websites, the Mixpad (http://www.mixpad.com) and the Old House Channel (http://www.oldhousechannel.com) and working on the Old House Channel internet radio show. With the OHC show, Terror hopes to bring back the raw vibe of the early house post disco club vibe, and introduce it to a new generation, as well as educate them on the origins of much of the different genres of club music that make up todays club scene. And, hopefully, to stay as passionate about the music as he was as a happy go lucky four year old putting 45s on a record player for grown folks delight...
Now he will try to take this to the next level...
