Tom Trago, Bok Bok, Feadz and DJ Funk have all contributed to a compilation that pays homage to the trailblazing Chicago label.
Titled Boysnoize Presents: A Tribute To Dance Mania, the 13-track collection will see release through the German producer's own Boysnoize Records imprint. It features a track from Dance Mania founder DJ Funk, as well as Dance Mania-style cuts from Boys Noize himself (in collaboration with Housemeister) and a handful of his label's regulars including Feadz, Strip Steve and SCNTST. Bok Bok and Tom Trago have also rekindled their studio partnership to contribute a track called "Silent G Safari."
"Many 12-inches from DJ Funk, DJ Deeon or Paul Johnson that were produced in the middle of the '90s still work so well in any club environment," says Boys Noize, real name Alex Ridha. "The idea of simple, jackin' booty house records to use as tools, more or less, have always been timeless weapons in many DJ sets."
The news comes two weeks on from the announcement that Boys Noize has mixed the next edition of the Fabriclive series. Dance Mania has also been enjoying some time in the spotlight recently—this year has seen the label relaunch after a period of dormancy, while last week Strut revealed their plans to issue a two-disc retrospective.
