Claude VonStroke, Green Velvet duo, Get Real dole out second release ever, ‘Jolean’
Get Real, the perfect pairing of house—the original Chicago house/tech don of the past two decades, Green Velvet and supremely silly but seriously skilled Dirtybird patriarch, Claude VonStroke—has finally released their long-awaited track “Jolean.” Ever since announcing their formation in 2015, the duo has only played a few select shows under the Get Real masthead, with the new track arriving as their second official release to date—following their 2016 debut two-tracker, Mind Yo Bizness/Snuffaluffagus.
With a funky bassline, perfectly timed vocal chops, and an infectious vocal performance from Green Velvet, you can try to stay away from this stomper in house circles in coming months, but efforts will be futile. “Jolean” will be sure to fill clubs, festival stages, and dance floors everywhere. The track’s already been supported by longtime loyal and leading proponents of their earmark, like Damian Lazarus, Nicole Moudaber, and DJ Tennis.
The duo hit their first power-up after a four-hour back-to-back set in Miami in 2014, opting to ditch their consecutively scheduled individual sets. Their musical chemistry, in addition to their seasoned experience in the industry, culminates in a track that stands out in a constantly self-saturating sea of house music.
