Enter the Jacking Zone, a dimension of House & Sound!
Jacking or Jackin', the term by which the form is more commonly known, is a dance technique and music form that first became popular in the late 1980s as one of the myriad music forms which arose from the last days of disco. Though there continues to be some dispute as to a single absolute stylistic origin, "Jacking" music and dance most likely came from the multicultural roots in the early underground Chicago house and London music scenes. Both concepts of Jacking have their origins in various African and types of Latino and Hispanic dance culture, with a fair amount of influence from early European and American disco culture.
Originally Jacking's two most prominent divergent forms, the Chicago Jacking scene was often linked to the Detroit Techno scene in its earliest forms while the European Jacking form trended slightly towards a tribal "hard house" underground, punk and house scenes.
