Noel Phelan plays host on the mainfloor to "the godfather of house" and true originator Marshall Jefferson. Back as far as 1986 / 87 Marshall was responsible for producing two dance music classics "the house music anthem" - "Move your Body" & Phutures "Acid Trax". In 1990 having influenced and launched the careers of what reads like a whos who of dance music, Ten City, Kym Mazelle, Frankie Knuckles, Steve "Silk" Hurley & Lil Louis amongst others, Marshall took a 4 year sabbatical. He returned to his first love DJing in 1994 & today 8 years later he is still one of the most in demand DJs / producers worldwide. Nice & Nasty records Desy Balmer & Dave Ingham spin an eclectic alternative in Drum bar from 9pm.

Marshall Jefferson

There are a few DJs given the title " Godfather of House" and while most are deserving of the title, one stands out from the crowd as being the one that defined house music. His name is Marshall Jefferson. Marshall has been there since the beginning, when in 1986 he produced the platinum selling universally acclaimed "house music anthem" - "Move Your Body" a record first introduced by legendary club DJ Ron Hardy at Chicagos Music Box, seen as a defining moment for house music. In 1987 he produced another house music classic Phutures "Acid Trax" simultaneously launching the career of DJ Pierre.
Since then Marshall has continued to produce classic house music and has been instrumental in launching the careers of many of dance musics most successful DJs & Artists notably Ten City whose career he masterminded from '88-'92 co writing & producing the classics "Devotion" & "That's the way love is",
To add to his list of accomplishments Marshall has contributed to the success of Kim Mazelle, Frankie Knuckles, Lil Louis, Felix da Housecat & Roy Davis Jnr. amongst others.
So when finally we look at the house music spectrum in all its forms "deep house, acid house, garage & techno" you can be sure he has influenced them all.
Its 2002 and Marshall Jefferson is still one of the most in demand producers & DJs worldwide.


Kerri Chandler

Influenced at a young age by his father Kerri Chandler has been DJing since he was 9 years old & producing tracks in his own right from the tender age of 15. Growing up in New Jersey with Tony Humphries & Michael Watson he quickly developed a rich understanding of the New York underground sound and became one of the most successful artists of the last decade. Producing tracks for King St., Strictly Rhythm, Large, Nervous & his own Madhouse imprint Kerri has developed his own unique style with a mastery of rhythm & space fusing vocals, rhythms, heavy basslines and a thundering kickdrum.
Despite this success Kerri has always remained true to the spirit of the underground. In demand worldwide Kerri spins a sublime mix of deep, soulful, vocal & latin house, his goal is to enjoy what he does & to continue to make good house music. One thing for sure is he will continue to startle us as he has done from the very beginning with his first remix, redefining house music at every turn. Kerri has established an enviable reputation with Irelands house music devotees selling out venues on every visit.
