Brooklyn-raised Todd Terry has been shaking things up in the world of house music since the late 80s and early 90s. It takes more than just perseverance to remain a coveted and appreciated name decades later - and with Terry's talent, sharp ear and ability to translate a classic sound into modern times. This year alone, Terry revived his CLS moniker with the raw 'Lay It Down' track, premiered on Mixmag.
This weekend, Todd Terry heads up to Montreal for the weekend for AIM Festival. But before he does, he's stopped by to give us the low down on some of his favorite listenings right now as a preview of what's guaranteed to be a set not to miss.

Everything But The Girl 'Missing' (Todd Terry Remix)
"One of my biggest records. It seems like girls always request 'Missing', so I have no choice but to play it."
