SAN PROPER (Rush Hour) LIVE & Axel Boman


San Proper is a well-respected artist from the Amsterdam underground club scene. Over the last fifteen years, he has been spinning and playing live from major clubs and festivals to smaller bars and dodgy underground locations. He’s known and praised for his House & Disco sets, but also skilled in blending different styles from Acid to Afro-beat into an eclectic mix. Since 2009 he has been performing & presenting a solo live show chanting vocals and playing several live instruments alongside his hardware and digital gear.

As an Amsterdam local, San Proper is working close with fresh and genuine labels and organizations like Rush Hour, Dekmantel and Trouw. All known for setting the tone for quality underground music and scenery by supporting local talent and paying tribute to house and techno legends.This same attitude got him to release on several labels like Rush
Hour and Perlon. His first five releases with Rush Hour was based on presenting his musical friends from Amsterdam with his “Proper A’dam Family Series”, ‘Part 4’ with O-Boogie got picked up by Laurent Garnier, who did an edit of ‘Magnificent Speech Funk’. After presenting his background he released his break through record “Keep it Raw” on Perlon, after producing a remix on this label for Ricardo Villalobos with a track entitled ‘Electonic Water- It ate my Quarter’ which resulted in several releases on Perlon. Meanwhile he has been collaborating with muses, friends and associates Tom Trago, Awanto 3 and Melon representing the sound of Amsterdam House music.

His passion comes across best with presenting this energy live as well as the vocal extras which he serves up during Dj-sets. As a touring artist he remained playing from major to local events, spreading his diverse sets on legendary spots in Tokyo, Osaka, Montreal, Shanghai, San Diego, Detroit, London, Copenhagen, Sofia, Zurich, Berlin and Paris, where he
has spend a lot of sessions completing his album for Rush Hour.

Axel is in fact the Swedish word for shoulder, but born and bred Stockholmer Mr. Boman could just as easily have been named ass, since most of his life has been dedicated to moving just that body part. It was around 1992 that Axel started dragging the confused youngsters into all sorts of weird situations – dodgy warehouses, blooming fields, sweaty basements – just about any place that had a nice sound system and someone pumping a fat baseline through it. Building a reputation for himself in the small but very friendly Stockholm club scene, he was soon acknowledged as one of Sweden’s most skilful and best looking DJ dudes. His sound is raw, playful and drenched in oceans of soul – just the kind of stuff the dance floors of today are longing for. 2010 became his big breakthrough year for Axel and his ass with “Purple Drank” released on Pampa Records, he went off to London to participate in Red Bull Music Academy and he started his own label Studio Barnhus together with Petter (Border Community) and Kornél Kovacs. He is finally coming back in October and is setting up behind the dj – booth at Gallery 2.35:1
