Haçienda 30: Todd Terry + Marshall Jefferson + Mike Pickering + Bobby Langley
This year the legendary club night The Haçienda celebrates 30 years, and to mark the release of a special 30th anniversary compilation album it lands at KOKO.
Marshall 'Godfather of house' Jefferson, one of the originators of the house scene from Chicago. As a solo act, he recorded 1986's 'Move Your Body' - sub-titled and unanimously acclaimed 'The House Music Anthem'. Jefferson also helped record Phuture's 'Acid Tracks', the first and best acid-house single. He grew tired of the sound and moved into a more spiritual form of music later termed deep house; along with Larry Heard, he became one of its best producers. Jefferson spent much of the 1990s remixing and DJing, and did record under his own name for the 1997 album Day of the Onion.
Marshall Jefferson tour dates
A big fan of northern soul movement Mike played the saxophone and sang for mid-80s indie/dance forerunners Quando-Quango. As a resident at the Hacienda Mike provided the acid soundtrack to Graham's vocals with driving Friday's Nude night. Taking influences from his love of Northern Soul and Hip Hop his electronic sound track earned him the title from The Face magazine as 'England's most revered DJ'. In his role as Factory's A & R representative he also had the distinction of signing both James and the Happy Mondays revolutionising the UK music scene. He also provided Deconstruction with North: The Sound Of The Dance Underground, cited by many as the first UK house music compilation.
