Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel
Jamie Principle house music producer and vocalist born in Chicago, Illinois. He began having entries on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in the early nineties, including "Cold World," a #22 dance hit that is a collaboration with Steve "Silk" Hurley.

His 1985 track Your Love (with Frankie Knuckles) is arguably the earliest house track, although as early house is indistinct from disco there were other songs from the era that contributed to the new genre in mid 1980's Chicago. The stripped down disco track was a sensation in the city's underground despite never being released on vinyl. The success of the song relied entirely upon tapes being copied and circulated through the clubs.

In 2004 he hit #1 on the US dance chart with "Back N Da Day," which is a collaboration with another house music legend, Frankie Knuckles.
