Many years ago I had the chance to see Green Velvet play, and I did. But it has been many years ago, time has flown by since. I think it was Innercity 2000, which happened 16 years ago?! What the actual fuck? I can remember the event like it was yesterday, it took place at the Amsterdam Rai, and the music in each area was excellent, but it was like walking around in a big maze! Christ, the location was immense. But memorable it was indeed. I remember Green Velvet well, seeing as he shouted so loud through the microphone, and he had what looked like pegs/clothespins on his head. 16 years ago, time has flown by.
On Soundcloud you can follow the man, and I did when I discovered he was on there. And his Soundcloud is filled with awesome music, a lot of podcasts, and each of them has had thousands of plays, which is obvious: who doesn’t like Techno? Eminem was wrong, everyone listens to Techno! His latest podcast was only uploaded 3 days ago and already 11.9k+ plays, that’s impressive. During this podcast he doesn’t scream of say a single word, he just lets the music talk. And the music is good.
Someone uploaded a tracklist, seeing as this mix didn’t have one. I reckon it’s correct, and if it isn’t, it ain’t my fault!
01. Get Real – Snuggaluffagas
02. Bas Ibellini – Elef Be
03. Oscar L – Output
04. Summer & Swift – Coulees (Green Version)
05. Genghis Clan – Crave Me
06. Marc B – Trois
07. Hervey McKay – The Mad Drummer
08. Get Real – Mind Yo Bizness
The tracklist is short, the mix is short but it’s very powerful. Techno still rules the world, and that’s a fact!
Green Velvet (with or without pegs) still has the power to get people moving. 16 years ago I danced the night away, and witnessed a lot of awesome things, but I also got lost several times at the Rai. Today I was lost too, lost in the music. Each and every track Green Velvet has selected is awesome, and is a mood changer. The weather might be crap outside and we are all inside with the heating on, but for once you do not need the heater on: you will start dancing and raving, and your body temperature will go up, way up.
30 minutes of madness, and I’m loving it. Techno the way it should be. Dark and edgy, no mucking about. Lovely sounding Techno, which proves to the world that Techno ain’t going nowhere, it’s here and it will stay. Wonderful mix by the Green Velvet, and worth checking out. Unless you like Eminem, but who listens to Eminem? No one, we all listen to Techno!
Awesome mix. Only good music. Only one score:
