Amsterdam's San Proper has been responsible for some great releases over the years, though few have managed to capture the anything-goes eccentricity of his DJ sets. Happily, that's where San Proper presents L.O.V.E comes in. While informed by his rubbery, off-kilter style of deep house, most of the tracks offer a deliciously, quirky, left-of-centre take on styles that have influenced him over the years. So, "Brazil" twists samba rhythms into new, dirt-encrusted analogue house shapes, "Bring It On Back" and "Grace" put electro and P-funk through the shredder, "Change Yo Ways" doffs a cap to ghetto-tech and Miami booty (albeit in a deeper, smokier setting), and "It's Here" is blue-eyed soul for the lo-fi Balearic generation. Best of all, though, is the title track, which delivers a devilishly low-slung boogie/leftfield disco hybrid.
