David Tipper, popularly known as simply Tipper, is a British composer and producer. Tipper's specialty is electronic music that includes anything from ambient, trip-hop and nu skool breaks. Over the span of his career, Tipper has released 13 albums and 14 extended plays, though he is known for scratching his unreleased notes over his music for incredibly unique live performances. Tipper is extensively admired as a surround sound composer, and his music has been featured in commercials, television programs and cable television projects around the world.
A Chance Meeting Leads to Success
When Tipper was only a teenager he was discovered by his soon-to-be manager, Richie Warren, one evening while performing as a disc jockey at a nightclub in London. The pair had multiple conversations revolving around the research regarding the science of creating the ultimate dance music. In 1997, Warren established Fuel Records, and Tipper released his first extended play through the label. Tipper released several more EPs through Fuel Records when one of his tracks was picked up for a European ad campaign, causing Sony UK to sign him to its dance music label called Higher Ground. Through Higher Ground, Tipper refined his electronic dance music skills. He leaned towards a higher bass frequency and polyrhythms in his beats, which ultimately helped usher in nu skool breakbeat as a known music genre. Tipper is recognized as one of the leading pioneers of this music genre. Due to Higher Ground's inability to properly promote the uniqueness of Tipper's music, the label ended up dropping the artist after a lack of sales. This hardly slowed down Tipper, though, as he was back in the studio dropping beats before the sun set. He went on to record and release over a dozen albums and extended plays, which have been nominated for several awards, including Best Album Intended for Surround Sound. Tipper also established his own record label, Tippermusic, in 2005 and began touring extensively across the United States, Europe and Australia.
