Born and raised in Brooklyn, Mr. Tipton always heard Hip-Hop and Dancehall blasting out of passing cars. With a background in Jazz and Classical piano and the influence of his family, he developed an early taste for a wide range of music. After seeing legends like DJ Premier, Pete Rock, and Mr. Cee perform, Mr. Tipton decided to jump into the world of DJing.
Whether in his current work at the East Village record store Turntable Lab, traveling to other music scenes across the world, or internet research, Mr. Tipton is constantly digging for new sounds to incorporate into his sets. He enjoys the balancing act of crowd pleasing and trying to take people to new places; bringing the energy of some newer hits with trips down memory lane. He's held residencies in Manhattan and Brooklyn and played with the likes of Dam Funk, DJ Spinna, Stretch Armstrong, Bobbito Garcia, Boogie Blind, Grand Wizard Theodore, Natasha Diggs, Operator Emz, and Breakbeat Lou.
In addition to DJing, Mr. Tipton creates original production, sample based production, remixes, and edits. Using a combination of vinyl rips, keyboards, synths, emulators, and a drum machine.
