Biography

Fueled by the infectious chemistry of rapper Mike Harris, singer Colette, and DJ Killz, The Proper Villains are an innovative fusion of electro/dubstep/rap/pop. Mike is a diverse producer/songwriter set to take the hip hop world by storm through the intricate elements of his rhyme scheme, flow, and lyrics. Colette is a full out vocal power house, bringing the heart and soul to each and every song ...with unforgettable hooks and harmonies, and Kills is the driving force that keeps the crowd moving with his intense energy and beats. Together, The Proper Villains will blow your doors, steal your heart and getaway clean before you even know what hit you…

Being a “Proper Villain” is a philosophy… it’s about never letting the world tell you what you can’t do. It’s about putting together a super team of individuals with unique skills and attributes and a common goal. If you can’t achieve that goal on your own, then surround yourself with like minded people, take control of your life, and make this world everything you want it to be. The Proper Villains symbolize those beliefs, and anyone (including our #VillainNation fans) who lives by that philosophy is a ‘Proper Villain’ in our eyes.

The Proper Villains formed as a group of 5 members in 2011, performing with live guitar, bass and drums where the sound was more of a rock rap fusion. They achieved success with the single “Your Heart” on The BEAT 94.5 and SUN FM. Over the last year, The Proper Villains have spent a LOT of time with redirection and rebranding. Following in The Proper Villains philosophy, they took on new management with Wasabi Entertainment, headed by jaXon Hawks, former Music Director of The BEAT and added the new power house singer in Colette. The writing talent was upped 10 fold with incredible hooks and a new, more real and heartfelt direction in Mike’s verses. On the music side, Killz KILLS! On stage he is The Villains DJ, but behind the scenes he dominates the creative process playing ANYTHING you give him from keys, to guitar, to didgeridoo if needed.

The Proper Villains' overall sound (right now) is a mix… better put as a fusion of Pop, Hip Hop, Electro and Dubstep. Their influences come from so many different genres and they create music based on what they like and listen to, and that will change and evolve all the time.

"We are music fans as well… that let’s us just make good music… stuff we would crank up in the car or wild out to at a show. We can be compared to any number of groups sounds or songs… but we don’t sound like anyone else right now, and we hope that works in our favor..."
