After teasing the project through many appearances over the past year, Claude Vonstroke and Green Velvet are officially presenting their new collaboration Get Real. Taking it back to their roots, Get Real is all about the music, drawing heavily on the revival of authentic old school house and techno. With Claude Vonstroke leaning on his Detroit background and Green Velvet diving into the well of his Chicago house heritage, Get Real represents not only a new development for both artists, but also a homage to the history of dance music in America.
To celebrate the official launch of the project, Get Real will have a run of dates this December and January, making notable stops in Los Angeles and Brooklyn, including a hometown play for Green Velvet in Chicago on New Years Eve. Tickets for the tour as well as merchandise are on sale today. The duo will also be introducing their first official productions as Get Real over the coming months, with new music set for release in early 2016.
Both Claude Vonstroke and Green Velvet boast lengthy resumes, with many releases under their belts. As the owner of Dirtybird Records, Claude has built an impeccable roster signing acts like Justin Martin, Julio Bashmore, Catz n Dogz, Breach, Eats Everything, and Shiba San well before they broke out of their hometown scenes. With his imprints Relief and Cajual, Green Velvet is a legendary artist with club anthems such as “La La Land,” “Flash,” “Shake & Pop,” “Voicemail,” “Lazer Beams,” “Bigger Than Prince” and “Suga.” Together, these two artists bring an unstoppable force to the electronic music scene and beyond.
