Scottish promoters Nightvision are bringing Chicago house and techno luminary Green Velvet to Edinburgh. The Relief and Cajual records boss will be appearing at the gargantuan, Sir Terence Conran-designed Ocean Terminal on Friday 13th July.
Best known for uncompromising, sometimes sassy, sometimes dark tracks like 'I Want To Leave My Body', 'Flash', 'The Stalker' and 'The Percolator', Green Velvet is spending an extended period in the UK this summer. Also known as Cajmere, he has been cited by no less than Daft Punk as being a key influence on them.
Also appearing at the Leith Docks Soundsystem event are Detlef, aka UK-based Greek DJ Alexander Georgiandis (who has released on Hot Creations, Moon Harbour and Green Velvet's Relief), plus the residents of Musika.
The Nightvision promoters will return to the huge, waterside space on the last weekend in August for a two day event which is set to close the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. More details will be announced soon.
