Terry Booker (born July 4, 1985 in Newark, New Jersey), professionally known as Internal Quest is an audio engineer, music producer, and youth mentor. He began his career in the Barringer High School marching band, producing for local artists and competing in area beat battles and talent shows.

In 2010, he became the lead engineer and general manager of Jersey Sound Lab Recordings based in Newark, NJ. Internal Quest calls his sound, style and delivery of his music as, “Hip-Hop: With a little innovation.” [2]

Internal Quest gained notoriety when he collaborated with Sydney, Australia based DJ “Nino Brown” in 2010 where they released “Flight 973 to Sydney”, an international Mix CD that reached the United Kingdom, Saudi Arabia, Canada, and Australia.[2] Flight 973 to Sydney featured a remixed single “Where We @?” with Bahraini former auto racing driver, Hamad Al Fardan that gained underground success due to its diverse mix of six artists from five countries.[3]

Universal Records Australia DJ Nino Brown was impressed with "Flight 973 to Sydney" which led to a production credit on his Blazin' 2011 3-disk compilation.[4] The compilation also featured Internal Quest as a rapper on Prinnie Stevens single "Lion".[5]
