Terry Tester - Genealogia EP
"One in a million beatmakers, but the one in a million kind..."
The Århus-born beatsmith extraordinaire Terry Tester's career behind the decks and MPC spans nearly two decades almost solely spent within the world of hiphop. After an unintentional kebab lunch, an immediate musical connection was sparked between the label owner of Copenhagen Underground Posse and Terry, who then dived head first into house music - and what a result! Having made his label-debut with the raw, bass-heavy roller 'Change Up' included on the V/A 'Liderlige Rytmer Del 2 af 3", Terry now returns to C.U.P. with the EP 'Genealogia', showcasing his unique style of tape drum tracks, warm subby bottom ends and spacey funk melodies.
Terry Tester first surfaced in the 00's as scratch DJ for local rap legend MC Einar as well as producer and MPC-badman for several acclaimed Danish hiphop projects. As a solo beatmaker, his works of imminent soulful, boogie and jazz-influenced beats has landed him production credits for Jahi & Dwele, BBE, Brownswood Recordings, a remix commission from Marc Mac for the Visioneers project (alongside heavyweights such as DJ Jazzy Jeff and Denz), and most recently a neck-snapping debut album 'Horses and Diamonds' (2012) and follow-up 'Short Suite' (2013) on Mixed Ape Music.
Copenhagen Underground Posse (C.U.P.) is a vinyl label and music family based in Copenhagen, Denmark, dedicated to showing the world what the scene up North is about.
