This past February, DJ Terry Mullan was invited to bring his acid house sound to High Fidelity and rocked it.
These pics were handed to us recently, so for those of you who were wondering where they went...here they are.
Apparently, Terry was cool as all hell and rocked the club with extreme energy. So much energy in fact, he broke the club mixer in a furious spasm of electronic bliss!
Here's a few words direct from his MySpace page...
"Being a fan of music sometimes means nothing else matters. This is true to life for Chicago’s Terry Mullan. His ears were alert at the right time, if house music is your thing. Right smack in the middle of the blossoming house development of Chicago during the mid 80's, at an early age, Terry was already in tune with what was actually happening."
"Although his roots began in hip-hop, Terry found himself smack in the middle of the Chicago house explosion. House and Disco were styles of music that were entirely new to Terry, but the match was struck. Faithfully listening and recording the then burgeoning Chicago airwaves, his nights during middle school were filled with the finest in Chicago house. DJ's like Farley “Jackmaster” funk, Fast Eddie, Armando, & Mike "Hitman" Wilson, via 102.7 WBMX. His mix tape collection fast became a fixture within his bedroom, constantly taping the shows, studying them. Some called it simulcasted education."
"Soon after the house scene was all grown up, entered the acid house sound. Here Terry really found solace. It was that added flavor he was waiting for, something new, twisted, and forward. Now all the elements were coming together. And with the addition of the Detroit sound, this was it, three different languages, disco, house, and techno. They could all translate the same message together or apart from one another. This is how Terry is like a translator. With his fluent style, these languages reflect his DJ’ing as well as the tracks he's now composing, which is his way of furthering the evolution of dance music."
I hope you all enjoy the pics. Better late than never.
