Cameras ready, prepare to flash
Green Velvet (aka Cajmere) studied chemical engineering at the University of Illinois, where he exposed himself to the energetic culture and lifestyle of house. In 1991, midway though graduate school, Cajmere returned to Chicago to pursue his dream of producing house music. The Relief label also gave birth to the experimental and eccentric, afro wig-wearing entity we know as Green Velvet – a Cajmere alter ego.
Green Velvet produced the first release on the Relief label, “Preacher Man.” He followed up the debut release with “Flash” in 1995, which brought about unexpected praise and worldwide recognition. Today he’s released on Soundcloud the 2016 Reboot of Flash with remixes from Eats Everything, Latmun, Oliver Dollar, Alberto Ruiz & more..
The full release comes out on 22nd July on his Relief Records…
