Strut Preps Double-Disc Dance Mania Retrospective
- Words: Glenn Jackson
The knowledgable crew at Strut have put together a comprehensive retrospective of legendary Chicago house label Dance Mania for the forthcoming Hardcore Traxx: Dance Mania Records 1986-1997 compilation. Set to drop early next year, the 24-track collection will cover the seminal label's evolving sound from Chicago's exploding house scene of the '80s into the the roots of ghetto-house in the '90s—including standout cuts from Parris Mitchell's Rhythm II Rhythm alias, DJ Funk, and recent XLR8R podcast contributor Paul Johnson, among others.
