Ink Bar

Saturday 18th May

While it is true that back in the day “Jackin” referred to a style of dance, today it more commonly associated with a nuskool style of “primarily” sample based house music called “Jackin House” that is largely characterized by it’s urban/street attitude, shuffly/skippy percussion, big funky basslines, and chopped up samples from styles such as hip-hop, rnb, jazz, swing, funk, & disco. It typically is a more “energetic” and “faster” form of house normally falling in the 122 to 130 bmp range but it can contain deeper & moodier elements as well. It stays very true to the old house formula but unlike the more traditional styles that are restricted to much tighter well defined limitations, pretty much anything goes in Jackin House as long as it’s not considered douche or cheese and stays in those bpm ranges. Often jokingly referred to as “dude house” or “gangsta house”.
Over the years like most genre’s it has changed and re-shaped somewhat and overlaps with other House music genres. A lot of what traditionally was called Disco House is now referred to as Jackin House simply by the fact it samples or borrows riffs, melodies and vocals from classic disco tracks often chopped up in to short passages and repeated over and over on top of a phat beat and bassline.
