It is always upsetting to see members of the electronic music community in dire straits. That is exactly where the extremely influential artist, Dave Tipper finds himself. Dave, who has been a massive influence on many artists including Bassnectar, will be undergoing open heart surgery. To help him pay for his operation Dave has released 3 VIPs from his sets. All proceeds from the sales will go directly to helping Dave cover his medical costs. You can also make donations through Paypal to Here’s more from Dave:

in 17 hours from now i have to undergo open heart surgery. (I am very scared.)
In an attempt to lessen the blow of medical costs from this major procedure, i am releasing an EP of ‘VIP’ remixes that i’ve been playing in my live sets over the last couple of years. My good friends at Addictech are hosting the release and are forgoing their percentage, so that 100% of the money from your purchase goes towards helping me out. There is also a paypal donation address ( if you feel like contributing more.
My intention is to bounce back from this stronger than ever, but regardless of what happens from here on out, i’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support over the years. It’s been a pleasure serving you all.

Be sure to help him out by buying his VIPs HERE and send donations via Paypal to We wish Dave a speedy recovery and hope to see him back at the decks soon.
