Cajmere has made one hell of a comeback this year. Here is his latest tune with Gene Farris, which is taken off their upcoming EP, Chicago Jazz. Out January 22nd.
LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Two weeks ago I posted the CVS remix, but this is the one that I’ve been waiting for since hearing it live. Riva Starr has put his own twist on Cajmere’s classic, which has taken dance floors across the world by storm this summer, 17 years after it was originally released. It’s time for the Percolator.
The story behind this track is just amazing (read about it after the jump). All the remixes are out on Beatport/iTunes on August 30th. Can’t wait to hear the Riva Starr’s effort - sounds massive live.
Some tracks just never fade. When Curtis Jones (aka Cajmere, aka Green Velvet) dropped “Percolator” in 1992, few would expect this bouncy booty house number would survive past a few novelty plays that summer. 18 years later and the cut has thrived across the dance music spectrum—from Detroit techno parties and European raves to Chicago juke gigs and B’more blowouts. Back in 2003, Jones gave his classic hit a few remixes of his own. But 2010 marks the first time other producers have laied legitimate hands on the stems. So now there’s versions by Major Lazer, DJ Chuckie, Claude Vonstroke, Riva Starr, Bad Boy Bill, Mixin Marc, DJ Gantman and Cajmere himself.
