Properly Villainous Beats

Proper Villains

Had enough booty boppin’ after last week’s mix tape? Of course you haven’t!

The fourth installment for all you ladies, gents and gender benders is here — Proper Villains Mix. Coming to you once a week as tribute to couture fashion designer Garo Sparo, all thanks to our lovely friends over at Garo’s workshop.

Watch as Garo, part-time psychiatrist and full-time dream weaver, helps his clients battle their inhibitions and unleash their true selves in our all new original series UNLEASHED BY GARO, Fridays at 9p!

Check out this week’s mix tape below, brought to you by Proper Villains.

Making waves in a genre that is already making waves, in 2011 Proper Villains is poised to help redefine dubstep. As we see it break away from its underground roots, becoming more mainstream, Proper Villains is one of the standout artists of this year, unabashedly mixing pop sounds and dirty bass into dance floor- friendly mayhem. While critics try to split this genre of music & sub-categorize it, Proper Villains borrows from his extensive background in electro, house, drum and bass, hip-hop, and uk garage to bridge the gaps in between. Jokingly describing his production style as “bass-ey awesomeness,” he skillfully crafts dance floor bangers like his recent remix of “Bass Down Low” by the Cataracs ft. Dev (Universal).

A prolific remixer, his remixography includes such artists as Stereo MCs, The Cataracs, Kidz in the Hall, DJ Ayers, Theophilus London, Cubic Zirconia, Dirty Disco Youth and Ninjasonik. In collaboration with Jess Jubilee, he remixed Roxy Cottontail’s “Double Dare,” which was featured on the MTV show My Life as Liz.

Whether DJ’ing to a packed house, or producing a club hit, Proper Villains’ talent for throwing in the unexpected gives his mixes that “Holy @#$%, did he really just do that” quality that keeps him in high demand. He just knows what makes you dance.
