Those well versed in ghetto house history should know all about Wax Master Maurice, a Chicago originator who released a string of on-point EPs on Dance Mania throughout the second half of the '90s. This surprise 12" for Super Rhythm Trax marks his first appearance on vinyl since 2008's footwork-inspired Waxmaster Make 'Em Juke EP. The material here is closer in tone to his now-classic releases, though there are some nods to B-more club (see "Otis Ghetto House") and, of course, the juke movement of recent years ("Keep On Jukin"). Naturally, all six tracks are formidably club-focused, brilliantly combining chopped-up samples (snaking sax lines, bits of old funk records, looped vocal snippets) with the kind of boundless, energetic rhythms that send Chicago dancers crazy.
