Steve "Silk" Hurley - Jack Your Body
This is real House Music..Makes Dancing with the Stars look like a seniors ball. "Jack Your Body" blew me away the first time I heard it in 1986 at the Garage. Larry played it and I thought to myself sounds like we have a change of the guard on the tables and we did; House had arrived in NYC.
J.M. Silk -- Shadows of Your Love HQ (Lollipop Mix)
Here is a rare piece of Chicago house music history.
J.M. Silk (Jack Master Silk) was a group formed by Steve "Silk: Hurley featuring vocalist Keith Nunnally. Yes, THAT Steve "Silk" Hurley who next recorded house music's first number one single "Jack Your Body" which became a groundbreaking international club hit and firmly cemented the world focus on Chicago house music.
He was the first to branch out to encompass pop and hip-hop within the house framework. His single "Shadows of Your Love" was the first release on DJ International and set the Hurley sound blueprint: a cavalcade of stuttering beats balancing an insistent melodic quality which mirrored Nunnally's soulful vocals

This was also the first ever record on DJ International, which was the first ever Chi house record label, along with Trax
