Marshall Jefferson’s Top 5 freakin Halloween tracks!
The story of house music will vary depending on who’s telling it. Pretty much there from day one, no matter who you ask, was Chicago’s Marshall Jefferson. Few men have been as instrumental in the development of Chicago house music since the 1980s as him, because he has had a hand in everything from deep house to acid house to ghetto house.
Whether crafting his own bona-fide classics like ‘Move Your Body’ or ‘The House Anthem’ or playing the keys on the productions of peers like CeCe Rogers’ ‘Someday’ (with whom he now runs USB Records) or whether touring the world taking his unique house sound and many Traxx releases to fans everywhere, Jefferson is and always will be mentioned whenever the history of house is discussed.
Last week at ADE we hung out with Marshall, and ask him for his five Ultimate Halloween Tracks, here’s the selection. Marshall plays at Hallowzeem in London Friday 27th and Ma Club in Catania, Italy on 28th this Halloween Weekend.
Ashes To Ashes by David Bowie
Really creepy vibe, perfect for Halloween. Some weird sound all the way through-sounds like a saw
Plastic Dreams by Jaydee
That intro and funky beat gets everyone dancing, but that haunting organ solo is what makes it great for Halloween.
Walk The Night by Skatt Brothers
Guy with deep voice creeps me out, great if your Party has a campy vibe.
Mystery Of Love by Fingers Inc
Very very moody song while at same time being uplifting-not easy to pull off but Larry Heard does it with this one.
Further Beyond by Joey Negro
Scary synths going over funky house beats, gets everyone on the dance floor
