In Amsterdam, San proudly presents “The Black Disco Bust” - a club night that, throughout the years, has won a cult status with some international DJs being featured (p.e. Daniel Wang, Alton Miller, Kalabrese, Trus'me). The Disco Bust is all about preserving the true sound of old school underground Disco music. In 1998, together with Alan Luna who, like San, is a resident at the Supper Club, he founded “Choque” -a club night about the deeper and warmer sound of quality House music.
He’s been organising these programs at top Amsterdam clubs like Mazzo, Bitterzoet, Club 11, Sugar Factory and more. San Proper started out as a guitar player. He played with several bands in the live circuit where he gained a lot of experience in music. In ’95 he founded “The Mindmenders”, a Funk/Hip hop band, which eventually won ‘De Grote prijs van Nederland’ in ’99, the country's leading annual talent show for upcoming artists. He left the band straight after, to focus more on solo production work and his career as a DJ.
Today he’s collaborating with Amsterdam’s finest producers like Melon, Tom Trago, Cinnaman, Steven de Peven, the Bootleg Bitches, Meikbar, 'De Schepper' aka Overlast and others and is releasing on Amsterdam's very own top label Rushhour. January 2007, he started releasing his "Proper A'dam Family Series" with artists like these. He remixed Ricardo Villalobos on Perlon with a track entitled 'Electonic Water- It ate my quarter' which was released in May 2008. He's also releasing on Soulrock records and BangBang records these days.
Recently he plays live with 'Podload', a new formation with Steven de Peven on bass, Jos de Haas on percussion, Tom Trago on synthesizers, Jan Overblast on drums and Proper on guitars...
