Ghetto house, back on wax.
Over the next few weeks, Dance Mania will dig into its back catalogue to reissue a series of vintage tracks.
The campaign kicks off a remastered version of Hercules’ ‘7 Ways’, the 1986 house classic by Marshall Jefferson, with two new remixes from Jammin Gerald on the flip side. According to press materials, this was the track that “set the blueprint for the Dance Mania sound at the time.”
In February, the Chicago institute will also reissue two EPs by ghetto house original Paul Johnson, 11 PM Music/2 AM Music and Sex Crazed/Track Happy, as well as Parris Mitchell’s Butter Fly EP.
