During our visit at Amsterdam Dance Event 2016 we had the pleasure to meet one of the original innovators and producers in Chicago House, Marshall Jefferson who had a hand in several of the music’s most influential early tracks.
Jefferson’s 1986 single for Trax, “Move Your Body (The House-Music Anthem),” the first house song to use piano, was a popular and influential song in the genre.
Here is our short interview:
Amsterdam ADE 21st Edition 2016 we are here together with the great Marshall Jefferson. Thank you for being with us.
Thank you for having me. Hi!
How is it going this 21st edition?
It’s going really good, seeing a lot of friends and meeting a lot of new friends, so pretty good.
So it’s a meeting point. Are you playing somewhere during these nights? Where can we find you?
I played at the oaK last night, it was packed until 8 in the morning, it was a very nice party. I guess a lot of you missed it but a lot of people didn’t, so it was good.
Would you like to tell us about some of your new project you are working on right now?
“SLEEZY D-LET’S GO UNDERGROUND” it’s a triple asset, a triple vinyl asset album. “SLEEZY D-LET’S GO UNDERGROUND” made a very first asset house record, without SLEEZY D there wouldn’t be asset house, it is a very good album. I’m very proud of it.
Congratulations. Good luck and thank you so much for your attention. It was an honour and a pleasure.
