Twice as Proper - Purple Aliens
Stay is our home, but now it's also an OPEN HOUSE. Why? Nobody knows. Who cares, we love it. Blasting basement club with the best vibe always. Proper!
2012 will be our 5th year of Twice as Proper and this event will be our first at OPEN HOUSE! 2011 was amazing for Craft & Shadi with tours in various US cities (Detroit, Boston, DC), radio shows as well as releases on many labels. 2010 had already brought International tours in 5 countries (USA, Italy, Egypt, Mexico, Costa Rica), international radio shows, podcasts, music productions, TV coverage (Italy, Mexico, Costa Rica), soundcloud recordings listened to in 84 countries, new fans and friends. We promise to rip it Proper. No crap.
For this event, we need to celebrate!!!
1 - Craft's first EP release "The Bitch I Love" released on Beatport January 9th 2012 on Ill Bomb Records. It includes Craft's original plus 5 remixes by Duckhunter, Derek Marin, Monktec, Owen Sands and Justin Kase!
2 - Jenny's Birthday: Purple Aliens theme... wear something purple or dress like an alien or do it all. Best costumes will get Party People gear.
3 - We have our favorite Duckhunter with us for this Twice as Proper special celebrations event. With his own Uberkontrol Records label and releases on other labels, including multiple collaborative music productions and releases with Craft, he is one of our favorite NYC Dj's and producers to showcase at our events. He brings his explosive energy, enthusiasm and drive in his performances which blends perfectly with the Twice as Proper concept. Craft will be releasing his "Stay Underground" EP on Uberkontrol Records in February, and will be dropping some of the productions selected for the upcoming release. Duckhunter is also featured in Craft's "The Bitch I Love" EP out on January 9th 2012. Shadi and Duckhunter have both recently been featured (separately) as guests of the Underground Movement Show video podcast. Check out some links below.Duckhunter

- "Twice as Proper" and their founders:
Twice as Proper is a New York City Based Underground Techno Events organization. Shadi & Craft co-created the movement "Twice as Sweet" which then became "Twice as Proper Sessions". With an impressive over 200 events and counting, it is now well established in the NYC underground techno scene. 2012 will be the 5th year, and with quite an illustrious list of guest DJ bookings in venues across Manhattan & Brooklyn, there is always something exciting and different to expect from the events. In 2010, Twice as Proper hosted 8 events in Playa del Carmen (Mexico) during the winter, while keeping regular NYC events alive as always. 2011 was fantastic for the two artists bringing International tours in 5 countries (USA, Italy, Egypt, Mexico, Costa Rica), international radio shows, podcasts, music productions, TV coverage (Italy, Mexico, Costa Rica), TV coverage, soundcloud recordings listened to in over 84 countries, new fans and friends. Craft & Shadi have been a DJ duo since 1994 on those legendary Technics 1200's. Then followed the years of CDJ technology and mixers with effects, always keeping it dark, deep, dirty real serious. They now often perform live mixes with the ultimate Xponent controller, with many built-in live effects. They go on with explosive sets, chopping' up loops and samples, all while in the mix. The result is always "Massive". Craft & Shadi promise to rip it Proper. No crap.

- DUCKHUNTER (Uberkontrol Records - NYC)
Duckhunter is an electronic music producer from New York City who has profoundly began to influence the NYC Underground Techno scene, bringing together psychedelic and hypnotic grooves with over-the-edge sounds, brought together with his live musical skills; playing base, guitar, piano, and experimenting with sound as though it was a liquid substance for over 10 years. A new phase of productions and performances began in late 2009, when Duckhunter officially signed with UberKontrol Techno label; which prooved to become a homebase electronic music label for his acclaimed releases from 2008 onward such as; "Ich bin eine Entejager" ("I am the Duck Hunter) with Alex Salganik (Uberkontrol), as well as "Lockdown JailHouse EP release of 2009" (on Beatport April 11th), "Gravity EP Release", also Tech House releases such as "TempoRed" and "Teleport" on Elastic Gun Records label in 2008 and 2009. Duckhunter uses the power of electronic musical sound, to bring people to a religious and almost euphoric and sedative experience, sharing the energy of his bright-burning, orange and energetic so called "Duckhunt", which itself tells a story to the party people of a ever-changing adventure though time and space, venturing to a deserted island on the outskirts of nowhere... Duckhunter's music evolved to have a characteristic & classy Tech Housy and minimalistic essence, with clean-cut scientific and precise grooves & occasionally twisted psycho-acoustic vocals with a plastic or rubbery whooling base precicely modified & engineered kick, with 3D transience as well as a spectral array of groovy and psychedelic sound frequencies. Producing specifically electronic music for only 4 years, Duckhunter is becoming a new and revolutionary phenomenon in New York City. His active collaborations with artists such as Unsaved6, Alex Salganik (Uberkontrol), On da Skillet (Aerotropic), Craft (Craftmusicproductions), etc., as well as label residency on Uberkontrol label and EA Gun Records for Tech House and Minimal Techno releases is greatly anticipated by dance music events in the Brooklyn Underground Loft Scene in NYC, as well as a whole summer of performances in and outside of the United States. Duckhunter is constantly sharpening his technical skills as a electronic music producer; creating his twisted and dancy but at the same time morphed and fashioned futuristic trend of pure and magestic electronic sound pleasing crowds as well as firing up and sometimes cooling down the energy on the dancefloor.
