Jackin’

Q (UK) - - Girl Ray -

The orig­i­nal house dance move, in its early Chicago form “jack­ing” ap­par­ently in­volved a kind of whole body spasm in­ter­spersed with out­breaks of pogo­ing. Later the moves be­came more min­i­mal, with tracks such as Steve “Silk” Hur­ley’s Jack Your Body, which topped the charts in 1987, evok­ing a ro­botic min­i­mal­ism that seemed to con­nect di­rectly with E-in­spired dancers’ cen­tral ner­vous sys­tems.
