Green Velvet - The Stalker (Laidback Luke Remix)


Music Man - 1996

This is another one of my all time favs. I first heard it on Jason Blakemore's Humanism mix (still one of my favorite mixtapes ever) and I still remember the first time I heard it on a big system. It was a rave at the Orange Show called Good-N-Frut-E. (Ayyooo!) The headliner was Frankie Bones and it was a big deal. Back to the matter at hand, Donson, Olde Toby and I arrived early to check out a guy named DJ Jasen, who they had seen at a party in SB. (Oddly enough, I met Jasen at WMC this year and he's a reader of the blog! Whatup dude!). He played a really memorable set and I freaked the fuck out when he dropped this. I went straight to DMC on Melrose the next day and sang it to the dude at the counter, who somehow always knew what i was talking about. I dropped like $40 on the Carl Cox "The F.A.C.T. II" 4x unmixed vinyl just to get it. Musically, this track is a combo of bestbasslineeverness and reallyfuckingspookyvocalloopocity.
