Our Hardcore Traxx collection of Chicago house and ghetto anthems is out this week, and we’re thrilled to see that, along side many other stellar reviews in the press, Pitchfork as given it their prestigious “Best New Reissue” designation.
With Ray Barney and Parris Mitchell having recently re-launched the label, it’s fantastic to see their work, and that of all of the artists who contributed to the project, receiving its due acclaim.
“Like garage rock or blues or any art that’s trying to accomplish a lot with very little, a surprising amount of weirdness ensued… Dance Mania’s tracks [are] among the catchiest and most brazen of their kind, alternately hypnotic and disruptive.”
