The birth of deep house?

There are those tunes made to suceed, and those made to be remembered. When we think about this second option, "Someday", a fantastic House masterpiece with vocals of Ce Ce Rogers and production by Marshall Jefferson that was sampled several times such as on 'Liquid - Sweet Harmony' and 'Urban Shakedown - Some Justice' - comes into our minds almost instantly.

Marshall made "Someday" after getting inspired by something according to his statement, but he couldn't remember what exactly. Ce Ce Rogers' manager Billy wanted Marshall to write a song for Ce Ce, so he accepted the task. Billy Prest was the greatest club promoter of all time and really took care of the artists. He flew Ce Ce to Chicago to sing "Someday", and Jefferson recorded Ce Ce's warm up vocal. Ce Ce said he was ready to start when they recorded the first take, but Marshall told him they had already finished. It was the greatest vocal performance Marshall had heard on a dance record, but Ce Ce Rogers wanted to re-record it. Marshall went to Macdonalds while Ce Ce did his second take, and it was great, but Jefferson didn't feel the need to do so really, so good the mfirst take came out.

Ce Ce Rogers wasn't so huge in Chicago, specially because the Music Box went down in 1987, as well as the Labourage (by the police) - even the pioneer DJ Frankie Knuckles, which was hired by the Power House and sent out some weeks later left Chicago to New York (Knuckles had to come back with the police with the receives proving the equipment in there belonged to him).

The New York clubs had the best equipment at that time, because of Mafia investments and money wash - and suddenly, in a month, the police closed several clubs, and they went from more than three hundred to only fourty aproximatedly, and all these DJs getting from 2.000,00 to 3.000,00 Dollars a night had to face a difficult situation. (Even Masters At Work played at a club for U$ 50,00 per night during a while, because they just wanted somewhere to play - and the status quo on the scene became something too competitive).

Even though, "Someday" was largely played in New York, and echoed all over the World since then. It went huge on the Big Apple and was played everywhere, on the radio and on the clubs as well.

This record has been the soundtrack for many music lovers greatest dance floor moments. You may have grooved to it in a bass heavy warehouse, rocked out to it in a dark sweaty basement, or raised your hands in the air aiming for galactic centre.

This track draws together all strands of house music synching the point when House music left the Loft and went on to dominate the global dance scene for over a decade.

Much sampled by many subsequent dance acts, Liquid (Sweet Harmony), Micky Finn (Some Justice) and others too numerous to mention, this track epitomised the loving feeling of house parties.

Someday we'll all be free.
Someday we'll live as one family in sweet harmony.

This is possibly the most beautiful house song of all time. It's just got soul dripping from every piano chord, the melodic bassline, and of course the fantastic vocal. There's magic in the production and the song quality here, it's the perfect marriage of raw Chicago machine soul and New York's more refined R&B influence.
