    Despite that fact that this music is now two decades old, it doesn't sound at all dated.

    If you like your house served tartare then this is an uncommon delight: 15 brutally raw tracks to smack, jack, bump, pump, pop and drop your way through.

    Ghetto Madness is an expertly constructed effort showcasing one of the most energetic and recognizable outputs in dance music.

    The legacy of Dance Mania’s insouciant, trail-blazing ghetto house is preserved in the city’s flourishing juke and footwork communities as much as it lives on through the label’s second life; Ghetto Madness is just a reminder.

    Some of Ghetto Madness hasn’t dated well, yet elsewhere it’s upfront and out the gutter stature gives prudes and purists the finger.

    Among the handful of earlier tracks is Steve Poindexter's crucial "Computer Madness" (1989), technically a Muzique release. The compilers could have just as easily included "Work That Mutha Fucker" from the same EP.
