NILE RODGERS & CHIC
There can be little argument that CHIC was & is disco’s greatest band; and, working in a heavily producer-dominated field, they were most definitely a band. By the time CHIC appeared in the late ’70s, they bucked the trend by stripping disco’s sound down to its basic elements; their funky, stylish grooves had an organic sense of interplay that was missing from many of their overproduced competitors. CHIC’s sound was anchored by the scratchy, James Brown-style rhythm guitar of Nile Rodgers and those indelible, widely imitated (sometimes outright stolen) bass lines; as producers, Chic used keyboard and string embellishments economically, which kept the emphasis on rhythm. CHIC’s distinctive approach not only resulted in some of the finest dance singles of their time, but also helped create a template for urban funk, dance-pop, and even hip-hop in the post-disco era. Not coincidentally, Rodgers and Edwards wound up as two of the most successful producers of the ’80s. CHIC has been nominated for inclusion in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame eight times and now billed as Nile Rodgers & CHIC, continue to perform to sold-out venues worldwide.

Nile Rodgers BBC Documentary:
Grammy Award nominated DJ/Producer Todd Terry has been engulfed in dance music, since he first started listening to European dance music records while growing up in Brooklyn. Already devoted to turntables, he heard something different in those tracks, and he went for the difference. Before the EDM revolution in the States, U.S artists had to establish themselves and their sound on a world stage. Todd did this by fusing early house music from Chicago and techno from Detroit with a NY BBoy feel. Once those influences were thrown in the pot – the finished produce was a very distinctive Todd Terry sound, that has been copied by many and mastered by none.
Todd Terry’s discography is extensive including the likes of: INXS, Garbage, Everything But the Girl & Annie Lennox are included in his remix portfolio.
A true innovator……
