******************************
The Detroit Underground Comes to Seattle
JACKIT
Presented by Knightriders and The Culture Dispatch
************************************************************

The “Jackit” parties are a series of Detroit-based events dedicated to combining various genres of music to ignite the dance-floor. This series was influenced by the early days of underground music in Detroit, where you would hear: Chicago House, Detroit House (Techno), Industrial, Hip-hop, 80’s Rock, Disco, Electro, etc., not as separate sets, but combined together in the mix. People played whatever they were feeling. The only rule being it had to be bumping and get people moving on the floor. This type of fusion inspired creativity and originality in Detroit artists and groomed them to become some of the best DJs in the world.

In an effort to continue this tradition of excellence and inspire energy and excitement in the scene, Trench and Aaron-Carl created a mobile production designed to motivate multiple venues. “Jack it” was a term taken from the early warehouse parties of Chicago essentially meaning “Dance”. Detroit’s sister city was a huge influence on early Detroit dance-floors and as a tribute, they adopted the call-sign which serves as both project name and description of the project vibe.
Past “J4CK17” headliners from the Detroit events:
Trench
Aaron-Carl
Gary Martin
Mike Huckaby
Bileebob
Ultradyne
Jay Langa – The Green Hornet
DJ Surgeon
