If the title of this new reissues label is to be believed, we should be in for an abundance of great Dance Mania-era ruffness from the nastier side of Chicago's gift to dance music. Parris Mitchell's bumper Life In The Underground is a great place to start, covering the side of ghetto house that was more concerned with challenging sonics and grit than it was with ass and titties. There is an obligatory nod to the ladies on "Ghetto Booty", but tracks like "Street Jazz" are downright revolutionary in their manipulation of old records, while "Work It (Remix)" comes on like a truly primitive vision of where juke ended up.
