Marshall Jefferson

The story of house music will vary depending on who’s telling it. Some DJs, producers, clubs and records will always pop up in any proper conversations because the shadow of their influence looms large over everything that has come since. 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.
