Congrats to our very own, Terry Hunter!!!
I know your thinking, I know his name, but allow me enlighten you on his legacy!
Terry Hunter is a grammy-nominated house music Dj from the southside of Chicago and he's been active in the Chicago music scene since the early 1990s. He has produced many of his own albums, as well as remixes for other artists.
In 1990, Hunter produced his first release, "Madness", which became an underground hit. While continuing to DJ in Chicago and beyond, he honed serious production skills, contributing his talents to remixes for top artists, including Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige, R. Kelly, Byron Stingily (of Chicago's Ten City), Barbara Tucker and La India. His 1997 track, "Harvest for the World", (a cover of the Isley Brothers track) peaked at #48 in the UK Singles Chart in July that year.
In order to develop the next generation of house music talent, Terry launched his own label, T's Box Records, in 2004.
In 2006, he became the first new member of Chicago's Chosen Few DJs in nearly 30 years. He was named "Producer of the Year" by 5 Magazine in 2009.
In 2011, Terry conceived and co-produced the first "Chicago House DJ Day", bringing together for the first time 100 of the most influential DJs in Chicago house music.
But the number one reason I'm giving Terry his flowers now, Terry has the official remix to Beyonce's "Break My Soul" The number one record in the country and his name is stamped on it!
I'm so proud of this dude! Love you Terry...
That grammy is yours...
