Curtis Alan Jones may hold the record for most number of aliases in music, but regardless of what you call him, you can't deny the success of his music.
Also known as Cajmere, Geo Vogt, Green Velvet, Half Pint, Curan Stone and Gino Vittori, Jones took a bit of a peculiar path to house music, having been exposed to the culture and 'lifestyle' of house while studying chemical engineering at the University of Illinois. And though he ultimately no longer had an interest in applied chemistry, he found a musical chemistry upon returning to the Windy City in the early '90s to pursue his dreams of producing house music.
Jones has certainly come a long way since his days of eating cheese sandwiches and maxing out all of his credit cards. His first hit on the dance scene was "Coffee Pot" (It's Time for the Percolator) on Clubhouse records, and a collaboration with Chicago-based vocalist Dajae on "Brighter Days" entered the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart at No. 2. The cut not only became an international hit, it allowed Cajmere to start Cajual Records, a safe-haven for more track-oriented work.
An off-shoot to Cajula Records came in 1993 when Jones wanted something totally different than his Cajmere moniker. He created Relief Records, which spawned the experimental, high eccentric entity known as Green Velvet. He has since appeared under a host of different names for various remixes and side projects, and has worked for artists such as Madonna, Orgy and Basement Jaxx.
