Two legends in their own right in Phil Kieran and Green Velvet have combined forces and released a new single together for the first time since the 2010s. The pair have collaborated frequently with one another over the years on a variety of projects. Extremely exciting stuff.
Reminiscing on old tracks that lit up dance floors over the years like ‘Free Yourself’ and ‘Birds and Bees’ could often be heard at clubs and festivals across the globe where Green Velvet, Phil and their friends often played.
Their track ‘Michael Jackson’ also saw huge success, gathering support from DJs that span across the entire electronic music spectrum. Tracks that have stood the test of time and still sound as fresh today compared to when they initially released.
Phil Kieran and Green Velvet are two of electronic music’s most distinctive personalities. Their production and sounds are instantly recognisable to music lovers across the generations. They also share a sense of humour and when asked about the concept behind Enjoy the Day, Phil says
‘mmm, well, it means enjoy the day!’.
Phil will celebrate his recent introduction to the platform this Bandcamp Friday by releasing most of his back catalogue spanning over 20 years of work via his own label Phil Kieran Recordings.
Phil explains, ‘Over the past 18 months I’ve been cloying back the rights to my own music so I can self-publish and release it via PKR. I’ve released under so many labels and deals; and pseudonyms that it’s been hard to keep track. On occasion I’ve even come across music I forgot I’d made. I’ve also been digitising some music that was only previously available on vinyl or CD because it was made before streaming was even a thing. Most of this will be available from Friday when I’m just gonna bomb it all onto Bandcamp.’
