Bang - mixed & compiled by Terry Hunter
Perhaps no star in the constellation of soulful house music shines brighter these days than that of multi-talented DJ, producer and remixer Terry Hunter. Since Terry’s 2007 release of the instant classic “Wonderful” featuring Chicago songstress Terisa Griffin, Terry has continued to have the magic touch, adding his much sought after remix and production skills to projects with the likes of Marsha Ambrosius, Barbara Tucker, Kathy Brown, Angela Johnson, Avery Sunshine, Kenny Bobien and many more. All the while maintaining his break-neck international DJ schedule.
Born and raised and still living in Chicago, Terry had a vision in 2011 to fill a surprising void in Chicago’s house music landscape–a hot weekly house music party emphasizing new soulful house music. Enter “Bang Sunday” at Chicago’s Shrine nightclub. Like its legendary weekly Chicago ancestors the Warehouse, Power Plant and Music Box, Bang Sunday quickly established itself as THE weekly destination for soulful house music lovers in Chicago. Every Sunday at Bang, Terry presides over a packed house of devotees, and shares the stage with local and international guest DJs and performers such as Louie Vega, Black Coffee, Joe Claussell, the Chosen Few DJs, Bucie and Josh Milan.
In this exclusive mix CD, Terry Hunter’s first for BBE, Terry seeks to transport the listener to the Shrine’s high energy dance floor on a typical Sunday night. As they say in Chicago, “Bang is a state of mind, a state of sound, a state of dance.” There’s no argument here.
