cajmere / green velvet
« on: December 19, 2016, 10:54:10 PM »

originally was on clubhouse records

then founded cajual label to become owner of Cajual / Relief Records

“I really like Sly Stone and Grace Jones, those are the artists I like the most but there are a whole slew of people who inspired me, basically anything that came out in the 70s. My father was a DJ and he played a lot of that kind of music, but he didn’t just play disco, he played funk and blues as well. That’s where my diversity comes from, that’s why my productions cover different bases. In 1982 when the house sound was starting to form I was into new wave stuff like Gary Numan, ‘Burning Down The House’ by Talking Heads, Blondie. To me Jamie Principle’s first records are new wave. You know it’s funny I did a top ten, recently, of the records that most influenced me, it was a little weird when I was doing it because it made me think about the way I am today.”
