“TIME TO TAKE YOU BACK TO JACKIN’ YOUR BODY!!!!!!!”
Chicago talents Paul Johnson and DJ Lil’ Tal have been making house since the mid-’90s, when they both released tracks on seminal label Dance Mania. Now, they’ve reunited with the revived label for The Doobie Bruthas Project, a four-track split EP.
Lil Tal kicks things off with the disco-infused ‘Find A Love’ and ‘Mandrake’ (the type of Dance Mania material that inspired Bangalter’s Trax On Da Rocks, no doubt), while Paul Johnson goes deeper and darker with ‘Jack that Ass’ and ‘Energy’.
Preview the EP below; it’s due out soon. For more on the label, check out FACT’s oral history of Dance Mania, featuring interviews with Parris Mitchell, DJ Deeon, Jammin Gerald and more.
