Item Description
“Close your eyes, remember the body you’ve just seen, then undress it.” Dance Mania present the official 12” re-release of one of the all-time great Chicago house anthems, ‘7 Ways’ by Hercules a.k.a. Marshall Jefferson featuring original mixes and brand new versions by ghetto house don, Jammin’ Gerald.

One of the first tracks to kick-start the Dance Mania label in 1986, ‘7 Ways’ is a sizzling, hedonistic dancefloor classic featuring Jefferson’s ominous vocals directing the dancefloor to get intimate and jack in seven different ways over hard and minimal beats and bass. The track set the blueprint for the Dance Mania sound at the time, a raw alternative to other label contemporaries like Trax and DJ International: “The early sound was a bit edgier and more underground,” remembers Dance Mania’s Ray Barney. “It was the music I was being given by the producers and it was made primarily for the dancefloor so we didn’t really get much radio airplay at the time.”

The track also helped to launch Marshall Jefferson’s career, appearing hot on the heels of his huge hit ‘The House Music Anthem (Move Your Body)’ from the same year, 1986. Two years earlier, starting from scratch, Jefferson had blagged a credit line and bought up equipment including a Yamaha QS-1 sequencer and a TB-303 bass synth: “I played all the instruments on all my records but I wasn’t really a musician, I would just play stuff at 40bpm, would stack notes and learned how to do the timing so it would sound natural when I’d speed it up from 40bpm to 120bpm.”

This exclusive new edition of ‘7 Ways’ is remastered for 12” and features Marshall Jefferson’s main vocal mix and Li’L Louis’ club remix featured on the original Dance Mania 12”. Harder new mixes come courtesy of another Dance Mania legend from the ‘90s ghetto era, Jammin’ Gerald.
