Curtis Jones aka Green Velvet aka Cajmere released the 36-track Cajual vs. Relief Compilation today, boasting dozens of remixes, originals, and collaborations including this one from our pal Doorly who teamed up with the 2x label boss for a House heater titled “Money.” With vocals from Green Velvet, the 7-minute tune is a low-slung, late night groover, reminiscent of dark warehouses and bad decisions. Have a listen to “Money” below and check the entire compilation on Beatport. √+
This Saturday, we will be heading up to the bay for a special GDD™ Takeover at Harlot San Francisco! The night is set to feature a House music legend from Chicago (Cajual/Relief Records) as the SECRET guest, as well as our own BONES, aRod, Shae B, and the world debut of The Interns (myself – Tōks – & Colby J.). Additionally, we’ll be celebrating the birthdays of two of San Francisco’s best event photographers, Holy Mountain and Lance Jeffrey Skundrich, so you can expect a night of revelry with a proper vibe. If you’re looking to get down to some great music this Saturday, join us at Harlot and be a part of our family affair.

Harvard Bass says in life you must “Stay True”… to who you are. And in this case “Stay True” to the music you live and love and then release it on a label that has never wavered.
After slaving away in the studio this year, our friend and favorite Victor Hugo aka Harvard Bass is set to release his debut album STAY TRUE this Monday, November 25th. It was a no-brainer for him to choose Relief Records as it’s home, the Chicago-based label owned by techno legend Green Velvet (whom he has collaborated with on ‘Lazer Beams’, ‘Kickin It’, ‘Sinkhole’ and his forthcoming ‘Bucket Boys’).
Starting tonight in San Diego, Harvard Bass kicks off a series of parties to celebrate the album dropping next week. Each party is planned to have several of his friends and special guests play sets, which is making for some exciting lineups all weekend long. The best part – ALL PARTIES ARE FREE!
11.21 – The Office – San Diego, CA
11.22 – La Mija – Tijuana, MX
11.24 – Los Globos – Los Angeles, CA
Harvard Bass on
GDD™ favorite and ultimate legend, Green Velvet, has released his 7th studio album as Green Velvet today on his own Relief Records, boasting 13 new collaborations with established and budding talent. Guys like Riva Starr, Harvard Bass, Oliver $, and our mate Craig Williams lend their expertise to the LP in addition to new names like Boooox, Saso Recyd, and Zcarab, who all won their way into the studio with Curtis through a worldwide production contest.
Chicago House, Techno, and Acid are all prevalent in Unshakable, calling upon lasting influences while injecting new sounds for an incredibly balanced record. More than 20 years after “Coffee Pot,” Green Velvet proves his relevance without fail. What cannot be shaken will remain…
