Marshall Jefferson is one of the founding fathers of house music as it is known today. Born in Chicago in 1959, Marshall was a central figure in the development of the Chicago house scene and produced seminal house anthems including ‘Move Your Body’, ‘7 Ways To Jack’ and ‘Open Our Eyes’. He has worked with the best in the business, from fellow founding father Frankie Knuckles to Roy Davis Jr., Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley, Felix Da Housecat and Lil Louis. Marshall has had a leading hand in the growth of the acid and deep house movements and even today continues to evolve these genres amid dooms-dayers predicting their collective demise.
Alison Limerick’s singing career began in the musical “Labelled with Love”, which was based around the music of Squeeze. She went on to perform in other musicals including Webbers “Starlight Express’’ and Simon Callow’s “The Pajama game”. Session work was diverse, ranging from Pete Murphy to The Style Council and This Mortal Coil, along with numerous other artists.
In 1996 Arista released the Alison Limerick “Club Classics”, a remix album. From this release ‘’Where Love Lives’’ again topped the dance charts with ‘’Make It On My Own’’ following. For the first time “Where Love Lives” was released in America and reached number 4 in the Billboard Hot Dance 100 Chart. To top off the year she was nominated for a MOBO award.
Since his 1990 international No. 1 single “Killer”, Adam Tinley a.k.a. ADAMSKI has been a household name synonymous with UK electronic dance music.
“After 25 years in the nightspots of the world providing sci-fi beats for hedonists, and even longer as a consumer of all the best scenes from glam rock to grime, I am now spurting all my creative juice into what I call FUTUREWALTZ or 3STEP,” he says. “I realized just how sexy and groovy the Waltz rhythm can be after hearing its influence in the folk music of Venezuela. While researching its origins, I became fascinated and inspired by the history of the Waltz and its social and cultural significance.”
House head extraordinaire Chris Cross returns to the Vegfest main stage, the last time he graced us with his presence was to warm up admirably for The Happy Mondays etc, here he is again with his inimitable style, setting the scene for a night to remember, opening up for house music legends The Man Like Adamski, The Beautiful Alison Limerick and The Grand Daddy Himself Marshall Jefferson, prepare to be amazed...
