Todd Terry's top ten

  1. Todd's Essential Top 10 House Classics (1996? In No Order)
  • - 'Running Away' - Roy Ayers (polydor) - " This Came Out In the early eighties. It's got one of those great choruses that always sticks in your mind and the bass is a good groove."
  • - 'Mainline' - Black Ivory (mercury) - " Leroy Burgess Sang On This And The Group Was Rocking" Patrick Adams, Leroy Burgess
  • - 'Aint Nobody' - Rufus & Chaka Kahn (warner bros.) - "This Brought Me Into A More Melodic Type Of Thing - A Funky Beat Type Vibe. I Definitely Play This Record Out."
  • - 'Jingo' - Candido (salsoul) - " I Think This Came Out Around '81. A Friend Of Mine Was In A Record Pool And He Got Sent It And I Begged Him For It.......I Don't Think He Really Knew What It Was, Especially As It Was A White Label DJ Promo. He Wouldn't Have Given It To Me If He'd Have Known. It's A Latin Percussion Type Thing - No Verses."
  • - 'Don't Make Me Wait' - Peech Boys (west end) - " This Came Out In 1980 although I didn't Get It Until A Couple Of Years Later. It Was A Big Record Both On The Radio And In The Clubs. The Singer, Bernard Fowler, was great; he rocks those kind of records."
  • - 'Just Us' - Martha Wash (rca) - " This Came Out In '93 And Was A Remake Of An Old Song She Did - She Used To Be In A Group Called 'Two Tons Of Fun'. I Like This One More; It's Faster - The Old One Was Slow, 112 BPM, You Couldn't Mix It With Anything - This One Is Brought Up By 10% At Around 122 BPM."
  • - 'Walking On Sunshine' - Central Line (mercury) - " This Came Out In The Early Eighties, It's Another Sunshine Record - I Like These Sunshine Records. Its Has That Dance Groove - Raw Sounds Over A Skippy Beat With A Swing To It. It's Not Really Straight, It's Like A Swing Groove. If I Am Playing In Florida, And If It's A Classic Set, I'll Play That." Larrry Levan mix!
  • - 'Do I Do' - Stevie Wonder (mowtown) - " I Went Into A Store In Brooklyn And Bought This In The Early Eighties. He Made This A Club Record, Not A Radio Record. It Has Dizzy Gillespie On It - It's Like A Jam Session. Its Has A Good Feel: Great Hooks And Lots Of Great Melodic Sounds."
  • - 'Everybody Loves The Sunshine' - Roy Ayers (cbs) - " I believe This came out earlier ghan 'Running Away. It's a groovy type track. You can almost feel the high strings in it - It's a summer record."
  • - 'Watching You' - Slave (coalition) - " This came out around 1983. It was like a New York roller skate record. Not that I roller skated - I didn't want to break my legs. I play this in a classic set."
