Steve Silk Hurley – Jack Your Body

“Jack Your Body” is a popular song by Steve “Silk” Hurley, originally released as a single in 1986. It was featured on the only J.M. Silk album, Hold on to Your Dream, released in 1987.
One of the landmark records in the history of house music, “Jack Your Body” was written and produced by Hurley. The song became a major hit on the UK Singles Chart, reaching number one for two weeks in January and February 1987. Hurley never promoted the track as he was “under pressure” to complete the Hold on to Your Dream album. He didn’t even know that the track had reached number one on the UK Singles Chart – when his manager mentioned, in passing, that the track had hit number one in the UK, he assumed this meant on the UK Dance Chart.
This was the UK’s first house music number one, and paved the way for the acid house sound popular there during the late 1980s.
