DAVE TIPPER – BASSGUNNER

Dave Tipper is known these days as a nu-breaks artist, especially for those who drive souped up supermini/hot hatches with massive soundsystems (more here). But when he first started in 1997 he was a bit more funky beats. His first release  – Bassgunner – always felt like a lost classic. It crosses the hop hop feel of early big beat with the paranoia of trip hop to produce something funky but with a bass kick. This recording is from the original white label on Fuel Records. Later releases of the track, expecially on CD, seem to have been remastered in some way and lack the same impact:
