Artist Profile
Curtis Jones aka Cajmere aka Green Velvet has been demanded by many many promoters in Asia and we are proud to say that we have secured more Asian show dates this year.
Green Velvet, initially created by house don Cajmere (AKA Curtis Alan Jones) as an outlet for his non-vocal productions and frequent DJing gigs, grew to become even more popular than the man himself, thanks to club singles like “Preacher Man,” “Answering Machine” and “The Stalker.” Each were infectious, undeniably fun records with simple vocal taglines and a wonderful sense of humor. Jones, who had nurtured the Chicago house renaissance of the 1990’s with his Cajual Records, gained immense success in 1993 with the Cajmeresingle “Brighter Days” (with vocals performed by Daja√©).

Later that year, he formed the sub-label Relief Records mostly for instrumental tracks by himself and others. Besides releases from DJ Sneak, Gemini and Paul Johnson, Green Velvet figured on many of the early Relief singles, including its first, “Preacher Man” as well as “Flash” (also released on the British label Open), “The Stalker” and 1997’s hilarious “Answering Machine.” Jones began to do supplement his Green Velvet DJing schedule with quasi-live gigs as well, and released his first LP in 1999. His self-titled release on F-111 one year later compiled a dozen of his earlier club hits, and the proper sophomore production album “Whatever” appeared in 2001 on his own Relief label.
