Green Velvet, simply put, is a legend. He’s been a force in the house and techno world for decades with many more to come. This year, Green Velvet, born Curtis Jones, is celebrating Relief Records’ 25th anniversary, a feat not many independent labels can boast. It’s a commendable milestone and speaks to how Relief (and its boss man) has consistently been one of the most influential imprints since inception. Still a stalwart figure in both house and techno, Jones is as busy as ever with a steady stream of tour dates and releases including his most recent track “Live Stream.” It’s our Relentless Beat of the Week; check it out below:
“Live Stream,” a song Green Velvet worked on with Toolroom head-honcho Mark Knight, is one of top artist collaborations this year. It’s been creating an enormous buzz in the house/tech house music space lately featuring a blend of two diverse styles that’s lead to the creation of something sparkling new. The track encapsulates current trending scenario of humans getting immensely moved by technology. Hypnotic and recursive basslines emerge from the start as the tech house number picks up and moves towards the massive breakout with mind-bending vocals.
