San Proper is one of the most notorious characters in electronic music, gaining a thoroughly deserved rockstar image due to his debaucherous tendencies. It’s sometimes easy to forget that the reason he is so heavily involved with collectives like Rush Hour and Dekmantel is not because he is their Bez, but instead because he is a wickedly talented musician.
‘L.O.V.E’ is the lead track off his new EP of the same name for Dopeness Galore, the Amsterdam label who’ve been dishing out hits with Andras Fox, Rahaan, Inkswel, M5K and even some reissues with Pharoah Sanders and Chet Baker. On L.O.V.E, Ms. Hollywood and San Proper himself alternate between whispering and singing the track title over a low-swung disco beat. Proper’s arrangement and vocals lend the piece an undeniable sense of funk and playfulness, which fits entirely into his persona. We can only respect a man who can make music like this while living the lifestyle he does.
L.O.V.E is coming soon – pre-order from Rush Hour. For more on Dopeness Galore, find them on Soundcloud and Facebook. We’ve got an exclusive premiere on Soundcloud above, but you can also watch the official video below, premiered on Thump earlier this week.
