Green Velvet
Green Velvet, initially created by house don Cajmere (AKA Curtis Alan Jones) as an outlet for his non-vocal productions and frequent DJing gigs, grew to become even more popular than the man himself, thanks to club singles like "Preacher Man," "Answering Machine" and "The Stalker." Jones, who had nurtured the Chicago house renaissance of the 1990's with his Cajual Records, gained success in 1993 with the Cajmere single "Brighter Days" (with vocals performed by Dajaé). Later that year, he formed the sub-label Relief Records mostly for instrumental tracks by himself and others. Besides releases from DJ Sneak, Gemini and Paul Johnson, Green Velvet figured on many of the early Relief singles, including its first, "Preacher Man" as well as "Flash" (also released on the British label Open), "The Stalker" and 1997's "Answering Machine." Jones began to supplement his Green Velvet DJing schedule with quasi-live gigs as well, and released his first LP in 1999. His self-titled release on F-111 one year later compiled a dozen of his earlier club hits, and the proper sophomore production album "Whatever" appeared in 2001 on his own Relief label.

With an insatiable hunger for success, Alex Wood has taken the dance music scene by storm and doesn’t plan on looking back. Having discovered his passion for dance music at an early age, Alex jumped headfirst into the industry with one goal in mind: to perform the music he loved in front of a live audience.

What ended up happening was more than anyone could have asked for.

Working his way up as an event promoter, he eventually learned the ins and outs of the event industry, starting his own weekly Thursday night party called Ignition at the iconic Firestone Live in downtown Orlando. The success of Thursday nights has catapulted Alex into the limelight, as he performs in front of thousands and pushes both popular and underground sounds to the rapidly growing Orlando dance music scene on a weekly basis. His DJ sets are not your typical “start-to-finish” sets that most are accustomed to. Instead, audiences can expect a diverse array of sounds and genres that will keep fans on their toes from “start-to-finish.” Education is what fuels innovation, and Alex makes sure his DJ sets reflect that philosophy.

But it doesn’t stop there – having just formed AMG Talent Agency, Alex plans to further make his mark as a prolific contender in the Orlando dance music community by pushing new music and other talented local artists to the masses.
