Awakenings Festival 2019
San Proper is a well respected DJ from the Amsterdam underground club scene. Over the last fifteen years, he has been spinning in all the major clubs, bars and lounges, in and around Holland. You’ll hear him play at most of the major Summer and Dance festivals (San has a residency at Europe's top Summer festival, Lowlands) as well as the more dodgy and underground locations. He's known and praised for his House & Disco sets, but also for blending a lot of different styles into an eclectic mix, which results in him playing at various spots. 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. He's also one of the four heads behind "Italo Elite", a club-night which contributes to the Italo-cult of Amsterdam, together with Tom Trago, Lupe & Martin Duvall. In 2007, San teamed up with a fresh organization entitled Dekmantel founded by Casper Tielrooij & Thomas Martojo, to celebrate, to preserve & to arouse innovating House music. This crew has been breaking records, in a figure of speech... In 1998, together with Alan Luna 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. After 2000, San got to play at a lot of special clubnights & parties by Rush Hour. At locations like Zuid-as/Rush Hour Select & Paradiso/Paradisco2000 they really set the tone for quality underground in the city of Amsterdam. Through Rush Hour's events San got to play sets with heroes like Larry Heard, Boo Williams, Octave One & Carl Craig.
