Watch Cajmere's "Percolator 2010" Video
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Chicago house legend Cajmere (a.k.a. Green Velvet a.k.a. Curtis Jones) is about to release a new remix album dedicated to his 1992 anthem, "Percolator." He's re-worked the song for 2010, and also enlisted an A-list team of producers to put their own spin on the classic tune, including Major Lazer, DJ Chuckie, Claude VonStroke, Riva Starr, Mixin Marc, Bad Boy Bill, and DJ Gantman. The album is scheduled to drop on August 30, but in the meantime, Cajmere's unveiled this new video, which includes cameos from fellow Chicago artists Gantman and Kid Sister, along with some fancy dance moves from a slew of Chi-town footworkers and a fresh crop of breakdancing children. And yes, those kids sure are cute, but who the hell gave that one little guy the ultra-gelled faux-hawk?
