As always, he primarily targets the dancefloor when presenting his current House favourites but this alternating combination of clubtracks gorgeously works at home as well. To put it shortly: Terry manages to meet his high standards again and serves us a perfect mixture of dubby house, some straight forward bassdrums and relaxing sounds. Truly dancable but also laid back, that is the musical formula that makes the Terrys Café series ever so popular.
