Alors que dans ses premiers albums, Ben de Proleter puisait dans les vieux samples classiques du swing et du jazz désormais c'est un véritable projet qui se met en place et on commence à le sentir ! Désormais ils sont 3 et proposent un Swing/ Jazz Hop très entraînant qui est créé de toute pièce !
Favorite track: Destiny.
While he is on one stage after another since two years, accompanying bands as Wax Tailor on their 2017 s tour, ProleteR joins Banzai Lab s crew presenting « Life Playing Tricks », his first release on a label, after years of successful selfproductions (more than 30 million views on Youtube !).
« The project s tracks are survivors, they kept their ranking between about fithty demos. » ProleteR
Here, we find his expert s touch by cleverly mixing several sonorous universes and drawing his energetic beatmaker inspirations on music history s resources.
Fasten your seatbelts, Proleter picks you up by your sharpy ears and gets you into his universe !
« Destiny » puts an emphasis on a super funky Detroit, we are thinking of Onra, Gramatik, The Geek &Vrv. With « Alone After All » we first enter on tip-toe, in a retro magical universe, with an enigmatic atmosphere. Silence, and here comes a gigantic funky drop with a swinging rythm and catchy riff. « Circus » probably recorded in the « City of Lost Children » s studio, where we can see a serenade between Pinocchio and a pink elephant. We imagine a procession of his imaginary s characters, a dreamer s view as the father in Tim Burton s movie Big Fish.
Far from rubbish, Proleter is this enchanted flute player that everyrone follows, at a firm step, rocking their head up. We assure that those 6 tracks will be ahead of your summer playlist, in front of the sea, during your long trips or cheeky parties.

I honestly don't remember HOW i came across this album but it's been one of my favorite underground records for years now. With the recent release of Soul Food 2 I figured it was finally time to pay for this masterpiece of sick beats and I can only say I'm sorry I never did it sooner Al M. Nips
Elaquent’s music recalls Oddisee’s instrumental work and Flying Lotus’ Cali-infused electronica. On “Worst Case Scenario,” the composer emotes a pastoral essence. Bandcamp Album of the Day Dec 16, 2016
