Dance party genius Green Velvet is officially no longer an artist of the past. While perhaps best known for his role in the Detroit techno and Baltimore club booms over a decade ago with tracks like The Perculator and Preacher Man, the legend has proven time and time that he’s still got the groove. From thumping techno tracks likes Heavy Mental and electro-tinged bangers like TECHYES, the man otherwise known as Curtis Jones keeps his work fresh while remaining solidly grounded in his Detroit roots. Thanks to a string of hot remixes from the likes of Nicky Romero and Santiago & Bushido, the Green Velvet sound has been incorporated into the modern dance music scene.
No stranger to silly track themes, he’s teamed up with singer Russoul to create an homage to late ’80s/early ’90s group Milli Vanilli. Although Maxime Dangles only keeps the core vocal samples from the original track, his remix lets heavy electro synths do the talking along with high-pressure buildups and hard drops. While the original track doesn’t quite have the same driving energy, its soulful vocals and infectious beats make it another top-notch Green Velvet composition.
