Given that he only ever released one single, you'd be forgiven for being unfamiliar with Slick Master Rick - an early Chicago house producer who later found fame as Dance Mania-signed ghetto-house producer Houz'mon. Here, Singaporean label Midnight Shift has pulled off a coup by pairing his sought-after "Halloween House" cut - an early ghetto-acid smasher released in 1988 - with a trio of previously unreleased tracks recorded in the same period. Check first the stab-happy thump of "Can't Wait" - all glassy-eyed vocal samples and thunderous kick-drums - before turning your attention to the rubbery, TB-303-heavy jack of Jammin Gerald hook-up "Nightmare". Closing cut "Jack My Body", meanwhile, is a brilliantly sparse but heavy chunk of blistering ghetto-house.
