Born Orhan Terzi in Turkey, the name "DJ Quicksilver" was created at a DJ contest as the audience broke the column of quicksilver, which was installed as a success-o-meter, by applauding. DJ Quicksilver took his first steps towards DJing 20 years ago. Success first came with the production of "Bingo Bongo". Orhan Terzi and his producer Tommaso De Donatis immediately had a huge club hit that remained in the German sales charts at a high position for weeks. Quicksilver's next hits came with the single "Boing", and the Quicksilver remix of Insomnia.
