Oyster Playlist: Marshall Jefferson

The godfather of house made us a mix ahead of his Australian tour.

Marshall Jefferson, who is widely considered a founding father of house music, has made us a playlist ahead of his first Australian tour in four years. The Chicago native has been bringing genre-defining tracks to the world since the 80s, even headlining the first House Music Tour of Europe in '87. Marshall has reached a revered status as a forerunner in the acid/deep house scene by producing seminal house anthems like 'Move Your Body' (1986) and releasing a multitude of mixtapes. This house playlist, care of the man himself, will get you ready to lose your shit at one of Marshall's upcoming live shows.
