Night of house music from Fabric resident and Wiggle co-founder Terry Francis.
Since winning Muzik magazines 'Best New DJ' award in 1997, Terry Francis has had
what can only be described as a meteoric rise to fame. To those previously
unfamiliar with his flawless mixing skills and instinctive ability to work a crowd it
probably seemed as if he'd arrived out of nowhere. Fact is though, he had been
blazing a trail through the underground for no less than ten years before the world
at large sat up and took notice and his unanimously praised 'Architecture' mix
album helped put him on the map. A seamless mix of deep dubby house,
celestial breaks and ethereal vocals - it was shot through with the kind of
shimmering techno sensibility that really marked it out as something special. Some
called it 'tech house', whilst Terry himself jokingly described to it as 'house no'.
Ultimately though, any labelling of Terry's style is fairly pointless because what he
does is what all the very best DJ's do. He blurs the lines between the past and the
present to create the future and always plays from the heart. Crucially though, he
does ft just that little bit better than almost anybody else.
His sleek fusion of techno and house has made him a top British DJ, but Terry
Francis has also helmed a series of solid productions, both as Housey Doingz (with
Nathan Coles) and released under the monikers 2 Smoking Barrels, Blue Wig,
Dattare, The Delinquents, G. L. F, Green Grass, Metal Dogz and T- Collective as well
as productions under his own name. Alongside weekly dates worldwide, Terry's
been a Saturday resident at London club fabric since it first opened it's doors and
his DJ sets have been a consistent highlight in fabric's history, continually
underlining his dual position as scene-stayer and tastemaker. An unwitting
ambassador of the tech-house scene he has been in constant demand as a
touring DJ, supporting the works of likeminded producers in the process.
