Green Velvet: This music industry legend, trailblazer, and currently one of the hottest DJ’s and producers on the underground electronic music scene…Green Velvet… came into existence almost 30 years ago. In 1993 Green Velvet launched Relief Records and since that time has been a constant presence in the industry. When this very eccentric, green Mohawk wearing Green Velvet emerged, he sent shock waves throughout the House and Techno music scenes. What was even more intriguing was his background. Born in the southern suburbs of Chicago, he has always been an active athlete and focused student determined to follow his dream of becoming a chemical engineer. While he excelled scholastically he was socially introverted, but always committed to finding ways to share his enthusiasm for living. Even today, …it is difficult to go to any electronic music festival or set and not hear music from Green Velvet/Relief Records.
