Twice as Proper is a New York City underground techno events series. Craft & Shadi co-created the movement "Twice as Sweet" in 2007 which then became "Twice as Proper Sessions". With close to 300 events and 150 guest dj bookings, it is well established in NYC and the international underground techno scene. 2019 marks the 12th year for the event series, and with quite an illustrious list of guest DJ bookings in venues across Manhattan, Brooklyn, nationally and abroad, 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) while keeping regular NYC events alive as always. 2011 was breakthrough for the two founders bringing tours in 5 countries (USA, Italy, Egypt, Mexico, Costa Rica), international radio shows, podcasts, music productions, TV coverage and interviews (Italy, Mexico, Costa Rica), recordings listened to in over 100 countries, new fans and recognition. Nowadays the event series is internationally recognized and has focused on less frequent shows hosting larger event productions both in NYC and abroad showcasing top quality artists.
