Base Originals Dan Tippett (and sometimes DLT) bring it raw and always keep it real. Classic hiphop with a nod to the old school, mixed in the reggae, funk and soul.
DT doesn’t reveal too much of himself online, but when you get the Colville born & bred, now Grey Lynn resident talking in person he has enough stories to entertain you hours on end. Also a respected artists in his own right, Dan Tippett hosted his solo exhibition at the Taupo museum in December 2011.
Original True School Dj, original member of Upper Hot Posse, respected Graffiti Artist and a devoted family man, DLT has covered a lot of bases. Back in ’97 he hit the number 1 spot on the NZ charts with “Chains” alongside Che Fu, and has been involved in too many projects over the years to mention. Also a keen supporter of the next generation of local talent, he is one of the true godfathers of the NZ hiphop scene.
