SunsetSF is proud to present some of the brightest minds in electronic music playing together on Mezzanine's exquisite Funktion 1 Soundsystem. "The Yoda of Electronic Music" himself, Tipper will headline the night, joined by Benji Vaughan performing a Younger Brother DJ set. String Cheese Incident's Jason Hann will play a latenight Prophet Massive DJ set from 2-3am and the Bay Area's own Nominus and Digital Rust will open the show.
Tipper started his career in the UK rave scene during the late 90′s as a teenage prodigy of the new electronic sound. This modest technician is one of the creators of what is now commonly known as “bass music”, and his production style is widely respected for its mastery of various types and tempos that have inspired appreciative ears and ecstatic dance floors over the years.
Following Tipper’s musical footprint demonstrates his range across different genres of electronica. Each step features his unique exploration of deep bass frequencies, intricate composition, and immaculate audio architecture. His contributions to Nuskool Breakbeat and Glitch Hop are generally regarded as significant to the development of those genres. Championed by many, his sound design is also widely influential, in part due to significant contributions to industry leading music-making software, and his craft is subtly appreciated in the background of advertisements, films, and television shows.
Humbled by his creative longevity and standing, Tipper’s approach to each performance demands he present previously unheard original and unreleased material, underlining his ethos that the audience should be equally moved and entertained. His mastery of live scratching and turntablism makes him one of the rare producers who can not only replicate his sound in a live setting, but also add exciting improvisational energy.The respect he shows for his ever growing fan-base makes Tipper a must hear (and see) for music lovers of any kind. This is your opportunity to experience a true innovator and pioneer of electronic music.
