Besides donning his straightahead house guise Cajmere and a flamboyant, neon-haired acid-house alter-ego named Green Velvet for several of the most memorable underground house tracks of the decade (including "Preacher Man," "Answering Machine" "Brighter Days" and "Flash"), Jones helmed the two most respected labels in the new school of Chicago house, Cajual and Relief.

Major Look

Major Look is Crystal Clear and Stapleton....... Crystal Clear & Stapleton's paths first crossed when they had the same Saturday job when they were 15. Both followed their own paths in dnb, Crystal Clear following the more upfront sound and Stapleton following the deeper/techier side. A few years later and they got booked for a gig together in Southampton a and swapped contacts. Crystal Clear wrote a stripped down tune that would sound good with a vocal on it & called Stapleton to see if he fancied laying down something on it.
