Tipsy – Tuatara

Here’s one from Tipsy’s dizzying foray into loungecore plunderphonics, 1996’s ‘Trip Tease’, and one can almost smell the palm tree’s. Lush, lovely intoxicating stuff.


Tipsy – Grossenhosen

Lounge and exotica plunderphonic loveliness from Tipsy back in 1996. Their album ‘Trip Teas’ was up there with Stock, Hausen & Walkman’s excursions into similar territory, and a worthy addition to a wonderful moment in sampledelia.

Tipsy – Zenith

Tipsy were a band who got lumped in with Trip-Hop (shudder) on their arrival. There were probably times where the comparison was warranted; however, on tracks such as this one, they fitted into another category of Formica-polishing lounge sampledelia. Think Stock, Hausen & Walkman or ‘Chaotica’-era Tom Recchion.
This track is from 1997.

Tipsy – Mr. Excitement

Lounge plunderphonics from USA’s Tipsy; from their brilliant 1996 album ‘Trip-Tease’. This is the opener and is a lovely piece of rolling, paisley patterned, formica-covered sampledelia.

Tipsy – Cinnabar

Lounge and exotica plunderphonics from Tipsy here, from their 1996 album trip Tease’. The album came out the same year as Stock, Hausen & Walkman’s ‘Organ Transplants Vol 1’, and Tom Recchion recorded his ‘Chaotica’ album. There was definitely something in the air at this time. This track takes the lava lamp vibe out into an LSD drenched Hawaii.

Get with it people.
