Dave Tipper is a mad scientist of the aural persuasion. Certain tracks of his actually sound like the audio equivalent of chemistry experiments, with bass that bubbles up and gurgles inside the container that is your ear canal. Tipper is a laptop chap for sure and not necessarily the most animated performer in the world to witness live, but standing idly by while watching a DJ mix really isn’t the point. Tripping out to his digital trickery is. If your eyes are jonesing for a spectacle, check out a DMC event or even DJ Swamp’s pyromaniac @$$. If your body desires instead to get lost on the dance floor for an hour or four, then find yourself at Evolution of Sound 3 this Friday, May 7 at Cervantes featuring Tipper and a small grip of supporting acts including An-ten-ae, Marty Party, Bil Bless, 6Blocc, Hypnotech and Somasphere, as well as loco locals Crowdrock, Jantsen, Seied, SPECTRE and Sub.mission’s residents.
Just a tip.
