What a way to celebrate five years: grabbing a cast-iron Chicago legend who’s really firing at the moment. Many know him as techno preacher man Green Velvet but he takes to the decks in his housier alter ego, Cajmere. Though the groove is deep, it’s still tough and twisted, something the clued-up crowd lap up. Cajmere’s 20-year-old track ‘Coffee Pot’ has them chanting the bizarre phrase “It’s time for the percolator” like it’s a mantra.
Cajmere’s appearance shows how far Schtumm has come since putting their mates on in the basement of a Moroccan restaurant. Admittedly those mates were people like Radio Slave, Serge Santiago and Thomas Gandey. Originally a partnership between Sam Watts and Neal Lewis, the Maxxi Soundsytem fella has now handed over the reigns but is still a resident. As he dives off the decks and into a car heading to Fabric it obvious why he’s stepped back. But who could stay away from a pure house night of this relentless quality.
