Steve Silk Hurley says 'Jack Your Body' for 25yrs more
S&S Records, Inc. (and S&S Chicago, Inc.) was established in 2005 by 4-time Grammy nominated producer Steve “Silk” Hurley and global DJ/Producer Shannon “DJ Skip” Syas. Silk and Skip merged Hurley’s worldwide commercial success and Syas’ strong global following to form S&S Records.
S&S Records has accumulated a catalog of over 500 records and album projects from artists such as: Syleena Johnson, CeCe Peniston, Ann Nesby, Fast Eddie, DJ Skip, Paul Johnson, Kym Sims, Chantay Savage, J.M Silk, Jamie Principle & Steve “Silk” Hurley just to name a few. House Music and Remix Pioneer Steve “Silk” Hurley has remixed, produced and / or written over 200 records, with at least 50 of them reaching the Billboard Dance Charts, and dozens reaching R&B and Pop Charts.
He has countless Platinum, Gold, and Silver Records, and his Productions have sold so far in the millions that it is difficult to calculate how many. Through the 90’s until today, Silk’s production and remixing services have been utilized on everyone from Michael Jackson, Prince, J-Lo, Madonna, Janet Jackson, R. Kelly, Mary J Blige to Paula Abdul, Lionel Richie and even Liza Minnelli. Silk is now a 4-Time GRAMMY Nominated producer as well.
‘Jack Your Body’ was Steve “Silk” Hurley’s first song released under his name as the artist, but not really the first (or the last) he released. It became one of the landmark records in the history of House music. Written and produced by Hurley, ‘Jack Your Body’ became a major hit on the UK singles chart, reaching #1 for two weeks in January and February 1987. This was the UK’s first house music #1, showing it was possible for house music to cross over. It paved the way for the acid house sound popular there during the late 1980s.
Now with the new remixes of ‘Jack Your Body’ 25 years later, Steve “Silk” Hurley collaborates with today’s hottest new DJ / Remixers in the Electronic world to reinvent the sound that made Chicago and House Music famous. Remixers include Olav Basoski, Chris Kaeser & StoneBridge, Junior Sanchez, Superfunk, Paul Anthony, Strobe & Gus Calderone, Nick Ahrn, KitSch 2.0, Chris Kurbanali, Jez Pereira & Elijah Collins, Mauritzio and Stretch Silvester. What a great way to kick off his forthcoming album! Distributed by Label Engine.
