Post by Twice As Proper on Tue Apr 03, 2012 8:55 pm

Party People unite for another underground event at our favorite restaurant in the world!!!! Come get sloppy in a more Proper environment...

We do restaurants removing all tables, installing mad equipment and hosting a sick visual show with projectors, making it a bangin' club with the best vibe always.

Like no other restaurant party in the world.... no mushy crap... we BANG THE TECHNO in this upscale fancy Italian restaurant in SOHO NYC once every month and will not stop until they ask us to! It's our longest lasting Twice as Proper in a single venue (3rd year at BOOM since 2010).

Proper lineup:
- CRAFT (Twice as Proper)
- SHADI (Twice as Proper)
- DUCKHUNTER (Uberkontrol Records)

Bring it on..

2012 is our 5th year, and with quite an illustrious list of guest DJ bookings in venues across Manhattan & Brooklyn, there is always something exciting and different to expect from the events. 2011 was amazing for Craft & Shadi with more tours in various US cities (Detroit, Boston, DC), radio shows as well as releases on many labels. 2010 had already brought International tours in 5 countries (USA, Italy, Egypt, Mexico, Costa Rica), international radio shows, podcasts, music productions, TV coverage (Italy, Mexico, Costa Rica), soundcloud recordings listened to in 84 countries, new fans and friends. We promise to rip it Proper. No crap.

Authentic Italian food and wines, mad drinks and bangin' deep soothing groovy dirty pumping bangin' techno beats provided all night after dinner. Mention "Twice as Proper" at the dinner table and a special something will be offered.

This week we celebrate Craft's "Highways & Jungles EP" released on Betport via Syncope Recordz (Germany) including 2 fan favorites "Highways & Jungles" and "Restricted Nightlife"!

With an impressive over 200 events and counting, it is now well established in the NYC underground techno scene. 2012 is our 5th year, and with quite an illustrious list of guest DJ bookings in venues across Manhattan & Brooklyn, there is always something exciting and different to expect from the events. In 2010, Twice as Proper hosted 8 events in Playa del Carmen (Mexico) during the winter, while keeping regular NYC events alive as always. 2011 was fantastic for the two artists bringing International tours in 5 countries (USA, Italy, Egypt, Mexico, Costa Rica), international radio shows, podcasts, music productions, TV coverage (Italy, Mexico, Costa Rica), TV coverage, soundcloud recordings listened to in over 84 countries, new fans and friends. Craft & Shadi have been a DJ duo since 1994 on those legendary Technics 1200's. Then followed the years of CDJ technology and mixers with effects, always keeping it dark, deep, dirty real serious. They now often perform live mixes with the ultimate Xponent controller, with many built-in live effects. They go on with explosive sets, chopping' up loops and samples, all while in the mix. The result is always "Massive". Craft & Shadi promise to rip it Proper.

In 2010, Craft traveled to Europe for his Italy Dj tour to Milan, Rome, and Terracina, then experienced an incredible Costa Rica DJ Tour with Dj Onda Skillet which was covered by much media attention (major radio, TV and internet). Craft ended up the year by hosting 8 Twice as Proper events in 5 stunning different venues in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

- DUCKHUNTER (Uberkontrol Records)

Duckhunter, is an electronic music producer from New York City who has profoundly began to influence
the NYC Underground Techno scene, bringing together psychedelic and hypnotic grooves with over-the-edge sounds, brought together with his live musical skills; playing base, guitar, piano, and experimenting with sound as though it was a liquid substance for over 10 years. A new phase of productions and performances began in late 2009, when Duckhunter officially signed with UberKontrol Techno label; which prooved to become a homebase electronic music label for his acclaimed releases from 2008 onward such as; "Ich bin eine Entejager" ("I am the Duck Hunter) with Alex Salganik (Uberkontrol), as well as "Lockdown JailHouse EP release of 2009" (on Beatport April 11th), "Gravity EP Release", also Tech House releases such as "TempoRed" and "Teleport" on Elastic Gun Records label in 2008 and 2009. Duckhunter uses the power of electronic musical sound, to bring people to a religious and almost euphoric and sedative experience, sharing the energy of his bright-burning, orange and energetic so called "Duckhunt", which itself tells a story to the party people of a ever-changing adventure though time and space, venturing to a deserted island on the outskirts of nowhere... Duckhunter's music evolved to have a characteristic & classy Tech Housy and minimalistic essence, with clean-cut scientific and precise grooves & occasionally twisted psycho-acoustic vocals with a plastic or rubbery whooling base precicely modified & engineered kick, with 3D transience as well as a spectral array of groovy and psychedelic sound frequencies. Producing specifically electronic music for only 4 years, Duckhunter is becoming a new and revolutionary phenomenon in New York City. His active collaborations with artists such as Unsaved6, Alex Salganik (Uberkontrol), On da Skillet (Aerotropic), Craft (Craftmusicproductions), etc., as well as label residency on Uberkontrol label and EA Gun Records for Tech House and Minimal Techno releases is greatly anticipated by dance music events in the Brooklyn Underground Loft Scene in NYC, as well as a whole summer of performances in and outside of the United States. Duckhunter is constantly sharpening his technical skills as an electronic music producer; creating his twisted and dancy but at the same time morphed and fashioned futuristic trend of pure and magestic electronic sound pleasing crowds as well as firing up and sometimes cooling down the energy on the dance floor.

Booking Contact (US/Europe) :
Überkontrol Records


He has been producing since 5 years, and over time, His tracks began to get support by mainstream producers and DJs. He wished to release he own tracks in a own label, after learning about studio engineering techniques.

At the moment Kume Recordings posess the ability to release music while attempting to build enough capital and material to become a label in the true sense. Consider Kume Recordings Facebook, Soundcloud, Forums & co to announce and release new music to the public. At the moment, we do all our own production, audio and otherwise but the proposals for new artists are welcome. We are always looking for new music, feel free to contact us with any information. Currently the label is putting together a deal with an online distributor, wich will allow us to spread our music to the world in over 50 online shops.

Who is Kume?
Kume was once an abandoned little bear in the Jungle of Techno. Andres Feles found Kume and took him in as his pet. When Kume reached adulthood, He built him an outhouse to cater for his impressively large frame. He teached the bear simple commands and hand signals, which Kume picked up at an alarming speed. Kume was even taught rudimental Japanese. After two years, Andres Feles realized the power contained in Kume, and so he trained Kume in the arts of the Bassline.

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.
