His name is Curtis Jones, but we all know him as Green Velvet, the Chicago-based house and techno icon who cut his teeth in that city’s 1980s electronic music scene. Jones, 52, has been spinning and producing as Green Velvet since the ’90s, influenced by everyone from Sly & The Family Stone to David Bowie and drawing comparisons to Gary Numan and Kraftwerk for his unique sound.

The Weekly caught up with the prolific DJ ahead of his EDC set to chat about performing in Vegas, his EDC plans, working with actor/DJ Idris Elba and more.
