LA-based modular instrument manufacturer Tiptop Audio launches it's label, Tiptop Audio Records, with this double LP compilation. The remarkable return to the use of hardware through analog synthesizers and digital control interfaces has proven so strong that it prompted a rebirth of modular synths in a new format (Eurorack). Tiptop Audio made it's name producing sophisticated but easy-to-use modules, designed to form a complete system especially effective for dance-oriented productions and live sets. Tiptop Audio Records selected for it's first issue some of the most groundbreaking artists using such systems, to present a range of artists who, through their tracks, explore the landscape of dance music with a fresh perspective. These are the artists who inspire the Tiptop team to make more innovative devices, which are then used to make new music (a nice feedback loop). ANGLE, Blawan, Christian Burkhardt, Joao Ceser, John Tejada, Joseph Fraioli, Moe Espinosa (Drumcell), KiNK, Richard Devine, and Surgeon each contribute a track stamped with their own style and vision. 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) produces an endlessly shifting set of percolating rhythms, Christian Burkhardt and Joao Ceser put some 21st century twists on classic dancefloor patterns, ANGLE lays down effortless sophisticated continental style, and Blawan adds some industrial-toned menace. Released following original introductory video teaser and preceding video clips for individual tracks created by various visual artists. Cover art by Matteo Giampaglia.
