Rarely does an act get booked to play Movement before their debut release drops, but then most “acts” don’t have 40 years of House Music between them. Get Real is Claude VonStroke and Green Velvet (aka Cajmere), and together they’ve been playing some incredible sets, from Reaction New Year’s Eve and Spring Awakening in Chicago.
They’ve carried it one step further with the release of Mind Yo Bizness/Snuffaluffagus, the debut EP from Get Real released on VonStroke’s Dirtybird Records:
‘Get Real’ is the new project from legendary producers, Green Velvet & Claude VonStroke. The pair, hailing from Chicago and Detroit, headed out on the road together for a string of shows at the tail end of 2015. Get Real was born and VonStroke was soon heading to Green Velvet’s Chicago studio to work on new music. The result of that trip is the debut Get Real EP featuring two slices of amazing future funk from two creative giants.
The two track EP was just released today. While the “Tour” section of their new site is empty, it at least exists, along with a teaser video of footage from their first shows (December 28 2014 at Elektricity in Detroit and December 29 2014 at The Mid in Chicago).
