Decompress and Get Ready for the Weekend With this Downtempo Cut From Tipper

It's Friday, and there's a whole lot of good on the way. One of those good things is happening on Saturday, when Dave Tipper (alias Tipper), headlines an evening of bass-heavy and cerebral electronic dance music at Mezzanine. And, to help you decompress and get ready for the party, he's released a few streamable teasers for Forward Escape, his forthcoming album, out May 5, on his own Tippermusic label.

For those unfamiliar, Tipper is a longtime veteran of the UK downtempo scene, with a vast discography that stretches back to the trip-hop and breakbeat days of the mid-to-late '90s. In the time since, he's developed an interest in ambient sounds and surround sound technology. These fixations are present on "Gulch," the cut he's chosen to use as the lead teaser for Forward Escape. In the vein of his best work, it's contemplative, psychedelic, and, perhaps most importantly, totally chill. You can stream the track below; a larger LP teaser is streamable via his website. Check him out this Saturday at Mezzanine alongside Benji Baughan, Prophet Massive, Digital Rust, and Nominus. The party starts at 9 p.m. -- tickets and more information can be found via the event's Facebook page.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
