Tiptop Audio has announced a new project for 2015, Tiptop Audio Records, to celebrate the rebirth of modular synths in the Euro format.
Tiptop Audio Records has selected for its first issue a selection of artists who, through their tracks, explore the landscape of dance music in a very fresh perspective. According to the company, “These are the artists who inspire the Tiptop team to make more innovative devices, which in turn make new music (a nice feedback loop).”
Tracks range from Surgeon’s trademark hard minimal beat, to Kink’s gauzy dreamscape, while Richard Devine and Joseph Fraioli explore the outer reaches of beat based music. The Phase VI team (John Tejada and Moe Espinosa AKA Drumcell) produces an endlessly shifting set of percolating rhythms, Christian Burkhardt and Joao Ceser put some 21st century twists on classic dance floor patterns, ANGLE lay down effortless, sophisticated Continental style and Blawan adds some industrial toned menace.
Here’s a preview:
The release will initially come as a double vinyl edition, with a cover painted by the artist Matteo Giampaglia, and a digital download version will follow.
