Pyramid Lake, NV (CN) –Tipper decided on his DJ name (born Albert) when he discovered that 12% of electronic music fans like [insert trip, glitch, or hip] hop.

At his best Tipper revs the crowd into a smudged, pointillist ‘Golfer vs Boxer’ froth with the redolent confidence of a well practiced electronic craftsman.  Tipper has been on a good streak of late, be excited.

Tipper has been inspired by Pyramid Lake for many years, incorporating the sacred geography of trippy looking triangles and stuff into his album covers for many years.  Check out his latest 7″ single to hit the charts, a cover of the old Pavement track ‘Puzzle Dust

When Tipper performs live expect loud downtempo glitch hop with turntablist gumption.

Check out a great set by Brummie Marc Reck featuring lotsa Tipper tracks from 2010:

Pyramid Lake, NV (CN) – Imagine if Dusty Springfield had wandered the United States today.  Instead of heading to Memphis she trundles to Los Angeles.  Stumbling in to a late night party she kidnaps Thundercat, gives him ‘ludes and convinces him to produce an album.  A slow hopscotch popstep album emerges after a month of being holed up in a grungy Van Nuys recording studio that features a tank of nitrous oxide, a basement level gravity pool and the entire catalog of Morrissey played on an endless loop.

Ladies and Gentlemen of Pyramid you have James Blake.
