Chicago Cultural Center

For an international audience reawakening to the influence of Chicago house during the 1990s, Curtis A. Jones acted as the renaissance leader. He donned his straight-ahead house guise Cajmere and a flamboyant, neon-haired acid-house alter-ego named Green Velvet for several of the most memorable underground house tracks of the decade including “Preacher Man,” “Answering Machine” “Brighter Days” and “Flash.” Jones also helmed two highly respected labels in the new school of Chicago house, Cajual and Relief.

Musician, producer and DJ Merwyn Sanders recorded his first two EPs, Virgo and M.E., in Chicago with childhood friend Eric Lewis in the late 1980s. Released on Trax Records in the U.S. and then licensed to Radical Records in the U.K., the albums are both regarded as seminal house records. Sanders and Lewis then followed up with M.E. EP on Trax and a fourth release as Ace & The Sandman on Trax subsidiary Saber Records.
