Terzi moved to Germany with his family in the late 1960s. His stage name derives from his days taking part in DJ contests, where a mercury column would gauge audience reaction.
He began working with Tommaso de Donatis on DJ Quicksilver material, and released tracks for a variety of record labels, including Avex Trax, Positiva, Telstar, Edel, Alphabet City, and Sub Terranean.
In 1997 they released "Bellissima" a hit double A-sided single after contributions from Alice Deejays' Marc Lee-Smith. The song became a big hit on the UK dance charts and then crossed over into pop, reaching #4 on the UK Singles Chart and selling enough copies to become a gold record, selling well throughout Europe. It remains his biggest single so far. Other releases include "Boombastic", which sampled the Shaggy track.
He released the track "Heart of Asia" under the alias "Watergate" in 1999
Terzi has also worked as a remixer, on tracks by Ian van Dahl, Faithless, and The Verve ("Bittersweet Symphony").
In 2002, he received an ECHO nomination for "Best
National Dance Act" for the single "Ameno".
