Google for Proxyan and you quickly get lost in the world of Bitcoins and proxy servers. Don’t go there and simply accept the fact that this illusive Dutchman does not want his true identity to be known. Our advice: embrace the mystery and focus on his music instead, which is a tight fit between Detroit infused electro (think Ectomorph, Ersatz Audio and Dopplereffekt) and the melodic wonders of Brits like Silicon Scally and Mark Pritchard. Proxyan’s productions are both slinky and funky, with much attention to detail and rhythm. The fascination for Motor City funk is most apparent in ‘Network 313’ but shimmers troughout this energetic 4 track-EP. Amsterdam based knob twidler Tracey (Voyage Direct, Dial) delivers a spot on remix which combines melancholica with a crisp production. His version of Human Error Processor is as bitter as a decent dry Martini under a setting sun. Every single sleeve of this mysterious EP will be a unique work of art by graphic designer Steele Bonus, thanks to the manual printing process.
