Dance Mania is a Chicago record label founded by Jesse Saunders in 1985. Jesse conveyed Dance Mania in 1986 to Raymond Barney when he left for Los Angeles. It released many House music and acid House Records in the 80s and early 90s and defined the ghetto house sound in 1994 and 1995. DJ Funk (who was already producer for the label) bought it in 2005 and made a new release (#1001). This first new EP since 2001, Pop Dat Thang, is a medley and reprise of DJ Funk's old tracks.
