Michael Terzian

For 27 years, Montreal's DJ Michael Terzian of the mighty Nu Bang Clan has stapled a signature, cutting-edge House sound like no other ; gracing turntables in South Beach/Miami, Chicago, NYC, LA, Detroit, San Diego, Toronto, Thailand, as well as Turks & Caicos, not to mention a multitude of Montreal staples both old & new, such as DiSalvio's, Jai Bar, Stereo Bar, Salon Daomé, Globe, UN, Peopl, Jello Bar, Luba Lounge, Le Bleury Bar à Vinyl, Fishbone, Quartier Latin, as well as repeat appearances for Festivals such as Piknic Electronik and AIM. He's graced turntables alongside House Music pioneers such as Tony Humphries, Farley Jackmaster Funk, Victor Simonelli, Tony Touch, Jovonn, Rick Wilhite, Alton Miller, Ian Friday, Tyrone Francis, Jephte Guillaume, Herb Martin, Freddy Sanon & Ben Johnson of Shelter NYC, amongst others.

Renowned for his eclectic musical journeys, Terzian's was repeatedly nominated on NYC's annual listing of "Robbi's Top 20 DJ's" alongside legendary icons such as Timmy Regisford, Danny Krivit, Tony Humphries, David Morales, Karizma, Francois Kevorkian, Kerri Chandler, Kenny Dope, and Grammy-Award winning Louie Vega, amongst others.

For a decade (1998 to 2008), Michael was a member of Montreal's revered 'Utopia's Paradise' weekly Saturday night radio show on CKUT 90.3FM (with Tony Desypris, Peter Lightburn, Claude Dabbas, Mark DiPalma, iDP). From 2010 to 2013, Terzian's self-produced weekly 3-hr Friday night radio show, Salvation From Sin, on Montreal's CJLO1690, received accolades from industry pundits from all over the world, not only for its tasteful selection of pure, unadulterated underground House Music, but equally due to the many local & international guests that contributed to the show over its almost 4-year run, not only in terms of live in-depth interviews, but guest mixes too. Integral & pioneering Dance Music pillars such as Joe Claussell, Juan Atkins, Larry Heard (aka Mr Fingers), Ron Trent, Byron Stingily, DJ Spen, Jay Denes (aka Blue 6/Naked Music NYC), Chris Brann (aka Ananda Project) & Eddie Perez (Smack Music), amongst a slew of others, dedicated their precious time to this unprecedented show.

Following his stint at CJLO, Michael fulfilled the duties of Music & Programming Director (for the DEEP Channel) at MotionFm.com for a couple of years.

In 2015, Terzian joined forces with longtime friend & DJ, The RawSoul, to form the Gold Diggerz, a knockout DJ-duo who have since held court at several key events & festivals in Montreal, such as Piknic Electronik, Lofthanza, AIM and Jardins Gamelin.

Michael also held down a weekly residency at The Angry Lobster Bar inside the world renowned La Queue de Cheval restaurant in downtown Montreal, run by Montreal's legendary restauranter, Pete Morentzos. Catering to the rich and famous, Michael played his mouth-watering cocktail of refined House sounds for a bevy of celebrities in the public eye, such as Katie Holmes, The Weeknd, PK Subban, Adam Sandler, Bernie Ecclestone, Lou Ferigno, and an intimate evening where he played for the legendary musician, Carlos Santana, and his crew.

In July 2018, Michael began a new weekly FM radio adventure, by joining the team of CIBL 101.5 FM (www.cibl1015.com) in the heart of Downtown Montreal, to produce his 2-hour Friday night House Music mixshow, DéCaDANSE. A few short months later, the show was extended to a 3-hour format, running from 11:59pm until 3am. He has welcomed several guests over the years such as Don Barbarino (of 5 Starz), Lorenzo Dewberry (Detroit), Lexis (of Music Is My Sanctuary), Alain Vinet (of Cirque Du Soleil), as well as live in-studio interviews with Patrice Scott (Sistrum Recordings, Detroit), and a 1 hour interview with the legendary DJ/producer Louie Vega (Masters At Work, Kenlou, Vega Records, NYC) in Feb 2023.

In August 2022, Michael began a monthly Saturday night residency, that he still holds, at the enigmatic Sans Soleil (a quaint little bar in the basement of a wonderful Japanese restaurant in Montreal's Chinatown district, called Fleurs et Cadeaux). There, Michael takes full advantage of the two turntable set-up (no CDJS), and throws down a 7 hr set for a packed house, on their state of the art Klipsch sound system.

Whether he plays in a nightclub or on radio, expect this refined musical selector to deliver his sacred mantra of sweet bliss by making dancers not only climb walls, but equally ascend to their innermost spiritual heights.
