Combining the flexibility of modern studio techniques with classic analog recording tools and vintage instruments, Proper Pop is the production home of Matt Basile. 

Whether as a genre crossing producer to The Dig (Rollcall Records), Mistty Boyce (Sarah Bareilles band), Kris Guen (Mother West), and Supla, songwriter for such diverse acts as Rich Girls and Casey Shea (Grand Canyon), freelance composer for Google, Scheme Engine, West One Music, and Liquid Cinema, or session and live bassist alongside acclaimed performers Eric James Marshall (Young Oceans, The Last Royals), Stuart Mathewman (Sade, Twin Danger) and Jeff Taylor (Rockwood Music Hall Recordings), Matt brings to each a wealth of knowledge and passion.
