The-Lost-Art Presents: Trippy Hippy

Trippy Hippy and Untidy Twelve Inch Productions
Trippy Hippy  had a passion for music since an early age, as a child his mother owned an LP called “electric coconut”. He loved the weird sounds and  one day as he was visiting the science museum in London there was a demonstration on audio which presented the first analogue  synthesizer. It intrigued Trippy  so much that at the end he pleaded to have a go but  that was not to be.
At the age of 10 years old a new sound came to London, this sound was electronic funk, Trippy fell in love with the whole scene, robotics, body popping and breakdance. He wanted to be a Dj and scratch so he set up to gramophones side by side and would spend hours scratching and mixing and of course breakdancing.

In the late 80’s a new sound emerged on the scene, House and New Beat, and Trippy got addicted to this new sound. It changed this country for the better, this was a time of mass unemployment and football hooligans. The early acid parties pretty much wiped out football hooligans over night, people had dance floors to relieve stress instead of fighting. On the dance floor everyone was your friend and it did not matter if you could not dance (ahem) no one judged you.
It was as if everyone Trippy knew was a Dj, so he never felt like being just another Dj and preferred to be on other side of decks having fun. A good friend of his, a respected Dj on the underground scene called MR Tom, helped me to tune my skills on the decks and I just played them for fun with mates. One deck each was always great fun. Trippy Hippy had participated in the Freedom To Party campaign march and demonstration in London in 1989 as well as all the marches against  the criminal justice bill in 1994.
The rest of the time he just partied either in clubs or free parties, like DIY and spiral tribe.

By mid 90’s Trippy needed a break so he moved to the country and started a family there. He dropped out of the party scene for a few years and started listening to internet radio. A dj on I breaks called DJ Derve played a few sets of Trippy Hippy’s as guest mixers on his show and thus he started to get a following.
Slickwillydee visited Trippy one weekend and mentioned a new station he had just started playing on and asked Trippy if he’d want a slot. He answered with a maybe and before he knew it he whipped out his phone called the owner and handed Trippy the phone and that’s how my internet DJ’ing days started… Trippy played on radio glitch for about 2-3 years but due to technical problems in the station he had to retire from my show. A regular listener from radio glitch was at that time in the process of starting their own station, subsanctuary.co.uk. And he has been playing there ever since.
He then had one of those “being in the right place at right time moments” in nubreaks chat when Natural Nate was discussing a new idea for a station , The-Lost-Art.com, and he just had to be a part of it ever since, being called by Trippy as a revolutionary act.

To describe Trippy Hippy in one sentence it would be “To bring beats and bleeps to the masses, just for the love of it”
