Still relevant two decades later - true Exotica - where instead of a tune based on notes and beats - here the notes and beats are replaced with samples of short melody-line fragments - unique pleasing dissonant harmonies woven together, as exotica was meant to be - fusing different elements to create a lush future-tropic soundworld.

One of the more interesting electronic music groups of the late '90s / early '00s for its use of exotica/lounge/soundtrack samples and retro rhythms. The first album is particularly great -- 5 stars for sure -- while the subsequent albums are all solid 4-star efforts. I wish they'd do more, and I wish more electronic artists did work in this sample-delic style, but I guess it's too retro for today's EDM knob-tweakers.

I love this band !!... of course, this is a very personal statement, but my reasons are explained in the next paragraph:

Back in 96-97, at the time when I was beginning to inform myself about electronica as a serious matter, I stumbled upon Tipsy, a very cool band which mainly uses tropical mambo, calypso and jazzy sounds for his compositions. Hearing them, as well as seeing their psychedelic "60's-esque" visuals really helped me to appreciate the electronic music as a genre without creative boundaries.

I'm deeply grateful with Tipsy, and with many other bands like We™, Byzar and Rob Swift that were part of the Asphodel Records lineup.

P.S.1: highlights from this band include "Mr. Excitement", "Nude on the Moon" and "Space Golf"

P.S.2: if you are one of those lucky mortals that had the fortune to follow the MTV's AMP show during the late 96 and early 97, you'll surely agree with me, these guys rocked!
