Percolator Lyrics
by Cajmere

About Cajmere...

I'm from Chicago and I'm here to tell you the artist of the Percolator. His Name was then Cajmere but now he is known as Green Velvet. Green Velvet (birth name Curtis Alan Jones) is one of the Icons of Chicago House A.K.A. Deep house in the world. Green was close to completing a Chemcial Engineering Masters when scrapped it to become a DJ. He Started Cajual Records on which he produced Instrunmental tracks for himself and others.

The song which is on one of your music list titled "What's it all about? The Top Forty Songs of All Time That Leave More Questions Than Answers." is mostly known as"The Percolator" or "It's Time For the Percolator" but its original title is called "Coffee Pot". Which should relieve a lot of scratching heads of the last 10-15 years. This song is considered by far a staple club joint to most House fanactics.

There is also a dance that is done with it which when I was asked once by my mother "Why is it done like that?" I said "It's simulating what the percolator of a coffee pot does." The actual dance calls for massive amounts of coordination, rhythmn and energy. To do the dance you turn to your side. Put your hands up and out as if you're going to give a great big huge and you titter totter them up and down. All the whilest your front leg is bent and moving the upperpart of your body up and down in a bouncy robotic motion. There is also a double action version is "The Percolator" but only the most experienced of us can do that version!

Now I'm sure you're probably wondering as to where the term "House" comes from as well. "House" came from a Chicago night club called The Warehouse. I knew of it's notariaty but was too young to go! Frankie Knunckle, Dj Sneak, Cajmere, Carl Cox and any and all DJ's of merit spun there. The Warehouse sarted in the mid-80's and by 1993 it was but a dream. The Warehouse was to house music what Club 54 was to Disco.

So there you have it a brief but accurate history on 'The Percolator." Green Velvet is now a cosmopolitan DJ that travels and tours the world 24/7/365. -- She'ry Denae McKee
