Biography

DJ Quicksilver DJ Quicksilver is made up of two people, Orhan Terzi and Tommasso De Donatis who form the mixer DJ Quicksilver.

Orhan Terzi was born in Turkey in 1964, When he's not doing music he likes Moutainbiking, Surfin and goes to Fitness-Centers. He found his passion for music through Jean Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze and Kraftwerk. He later found the Belgian Dance- and Trance-productions and from being a hobby the music developed into a fulltime job.

Their first production "Bingo Bongo", which was released in the beginning of 1996, became a huge Mega-Club-Hit and reached the Top 100. In November 1996 the success followed with the double A-sided single "I Have A Dream / Bellissima" and in 1997 the single "Free". With over 650 000 sold singles DJ Quicksilver reached place 20 at the "Most Successful Interpreters of 1997" Top 100 list. "Bellissima" reached the Top 10 in the UK charts and sold over 400 000 copies which means Gold-status.

Their debut-album "Quicksilver" was very successful and they reached the #22 spot on the German Albumcharts.

In December 1997 the single "Planet Love" was released. That single became a huge clubhit all over the world and was on heavy rotation on VIVA and MTV. When Tommasso De Donatis had finished building his new and bigger studio in the Spring of 1998 he and Orhan began working on their second album. In November 1998 the album "Escape 2 Planet Love" was released.

After the released of the second album they concentrated on doing remixes for other artists, such as Faithless, Jam & Spoon. Tommasso De Donatis also started another project called Watergate which also became very popular.

In 1999 they came up with the idéa of "Cosmophobia", which is based on the text from H.G. Wells classic "War of the Worlds". The single was released in the fall of 1999 and became a hit.

The next single up was "Ameno", this single features a sample from the Platina-single "Ameno" by the successful group ERA. This mystic Trance-Techno mix made it to the German Top 20 Media Control Charts and developed into an international hit. The video for the single was shoot by the cult-director Marcus Stenberg in Berlin.

The follow-up was also a cover, this time it was the 1995 superhit by Shaggy - "Boombastic". This single was also a huge success and the video starred the "real Mr. Lover", Shaggy himself!

In March 2002 with the ECHO nomination for "Best National Dance Act" for the single "Ameno" DJ Quicksilver presented their latest project: Base Unique with a remake of the classic "Always On My Mind". This vocal-trance smasher includes the vocals by singer Diana Maria.

DJ Quicksilver released the 12" entitled "New Life" on November 22, 2002.

On March 17, 2003 the cd-single "New Life" was released.

The double a-side single "Clubfiles One", including "Equinoxe IV" (originally by Jean Michel Jarre) and "Rising Up" (a trance remake of "Eye Of The Tiger"), was released on August 25, 2003.

DJ Quicksilver released the album "Clubfiles - The Album" on September 29, 2003.
