Would there be a footwork or juke scene like there is today without Chicago’s “ghetto house” scene? Probably not. Most people recognize the sound from Cajmere’s “Percolator,” but the ghetto house sound was thriving in Chicago from the late 1980s, and Gant-Man recently went in the mix, throwing down a history of ghetto house set that takes you from those late 1980s jams through the mid-1990s. Legends like DJ Funk, DJ Deeon, Thomas Bangalter, Jammin Gerald, and Gant-Man himself are represented. It can get funky, and it can get nasty, but that’s how a proper house jam should be.
