Originally released on Dance Mania way back in 1995, Sex Crazed/Track Happy remains one of Paul Johnson's most sought-after EPs. It offers a particularly funky take on the ghetto-house sound that Dance Mania was promoting at the time, with both "Suck My Candy Cane" and "U Remind Me Of Some Sex" combining X-rated vocals with booming, funk-influenced bass and snappin' percussion. He visits tougher, darker territory on the flip, with the bombastic "Give Me Ecstasy" sounding like a ghetto-house cover of Denise Motto's 1986 anthem "I M N X T C". As for "Groove Melody", it sounds like a blueprint for the boompty sound with which Derrick Carter would later make his name.
