In preparation for Proper-004, Proper Trax is holding a photo drawing. Take photos of either Proper Trax stickers in strategic, public locations or Proper Trax records on the decks of a proper party (preferably with the crowd and/or DJ in the shot) and share it on our wall. For each unique location, you’ll get one entry into the hat for a free pre-release test pressing of PROPER-004, which will feature two tracks each from Chris Mitchell and Grey People. Shipping is on the label. Contest ends on August 4th. No bullshit photos of unstuck stickers in your mom’s basement or records at a sad party featuring your girlfriend and cat. Keep it proper!
There have been a few submissions already that were removed from Facebook, thanks to its spybot censorship. So instead, submit your photos to proper [at] propertrax (dot) com and they’ll be added to this site instead, to avoid takedowns and other horseshit.
Will Azada’s recorded set from his appearance at TV Lounge’s Night Turns To Day party on Memorial Day Monday in Detroit. If you weren’t there, you missed out…but since he’s on the ball with that portable recorder, you can still pretend you were sitting beneath a patio umbrella, on a dirty couch, in TV’s backyard, getting slathered with bumpin’ bass and fueled up with cheap Bloody Marys. Oh yeah. Download or stream the mix below, tracklist in the SC comments. Lots of goodies in there, including unreleased material from Proper Trax, Chris Mitchell, Will Azada, Grey People, and Jackson Lee…
Worth noting were the opening sets from Aran Daniels and the Northern Purpose crew bringing it deeeeep. Unfortunately, due to circumstances, we missed out on DJ Spider annd the Jane Fitz / Jade Seatle B2B!
Thanks to Jane Fitz, Brendan Clark, Mr. Joshooa and the TV Lounge staff for making this happen and providing a proper atmosphere for Monday morning!
