"In the beginning, there was Jack, and Jack had a groove.

And from this groove came the groove of all grooves.

And while one day viciously throwing down on his box, Jack boldy declared,

"Let there be HOUSE!"

and house music was born.

"I am, you see,

I am

the creator, and this is my house!

And, in my house there is ONLY house music.

But, I am not so selfish because once you enter my house it then becomes OUR house and OUR house music!"

And, you see, no one man owns house because house music is a universal language, spoken and understood by all.

You see, house is a feeling that no one can understand really unless you're deep into the vibe of house.

House is an uncontrollable desire to jack your body.

And, as I told you before, this is our house and our house music.

And in every house, you understand, there is a keeper.

And, in this house, the keeper is Jack.

Now some of you who might wonder,

"Who is Jack, and what is it that Jack does?"

Jack is the one who gives you the power to jack your body!

Jack is the one who gives you the power to do the snake.

Jack is the one who gives you the key to the wiggly worm.

Jack is the one who learns you how to walk your body.

Jack is the one that can bring nations and nations of all Jackers together under one house.

You may be black, you may be white; you may be Jew or Gentile. It don't make a difference in OUR House.

And this is fresh."

'In the begging there was Jack'

The 1988 version had a Jackson 5 'can U Feel It?' sample and the infamous

Just an absolutely seminal track, really, this is just sublime and does things to me ;-)

@ yanmac Washing Machine was released in 1986 and sounded like NOTHING else at the time. It was an original which has influenced many other tracks since. There are tons of tracks which have sampled it or have sounded similar. There are even newer versions of it done by other artists as a kind of tribute.

What can I say but "Can You Feel It" still brings tears in my eyes. Yes Larry I CAN FEEL IT.

Washing Machine sounds sooooo much like something else with almost the exact same riff but in a slightly different pattern. Anyone out there able to put me out of my misery?

Are the Track lengths of 'Washing machine' and 'Can you feel it' interchanged on the label?

LTJ Bukem commented on Washing Machine in the first edition of Muzik magazine:
"Washing Machine is a conscious piece of music. It's one to make you think. It came out in 1986 and I first heard it at a club, it was a tune that really stuck out. I bought it in around 1988 at a record fair. At the time it fitted what was going down and I used to play it at Confusion at Shaftesbury's on Shaftesbury Avenue in London. It's around 120 BPM and very mellow.
