The nu-House genre continues to develop and morph as producers rediscover and rework classic sounds for a new generation of househeads. John Dahlback protege and comic book character David Vrong blends a ’90s classic house-sounding bassline, loops, and vocal sample with modern electro and progressive electronics for a hypnotic track that lulls you in with a seductive repetitive groove. It’s not a banging big room festival track, but rather a sexy house track that will make you dance rather than jump up and down. When you think of classic house tracks, “Jack Your Body” by Steve Silk Hurley always comes to mind. The anthem gets reworked by UK producer/DJ Doorly in a tasteful modern style that keeps the original elements in place while refreshing it with a modern flavor for the club kids of today. The new remix is featured on the brilliant ‘US House Legends’ compilation, forthcoming on Toolroom Records which features classics by the likes of Todd Terry, Blaze, Kevin Saunderson, and Frankie Knuckles updated in a way which shows reverence to their place in house music history. Those looking to learn the history of Jack should definitely hunt this set down.
