Terry Francis

His sleek fusion of techno and house 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 under his own name. Based in Croydon, Francis worked at the Swag record store and began DJing an irresistible blend of electro-techno and earthy house during the early '90s. His Wiggle clubnight gained fans around the country, and was eventually spun into a label as well. With Wiggle compatriot Coles, he recorded one of the label's early club hits, Housey Doingz' Piano EP. The like-minded househeads at Pagan Records (founded by House of 909) offered him a full-length deal, which brought Housey Doingz' Loving It album in mid-1997. Francis also recorded singles for Checkpoint and Surreal, and debuted an ongoing mix series Architecture in early 1998. The album also earned release in America, courtesy of Ark 21. By the end of the year, the second volume of Architecture appeared on Pagan. ~ John Bush
