Brighton-based SP beat wizard _lip (pronounced 'limpid') is one with his machines, utilizing his Roland SP hardware samplers to craft filthy fuzzy hip-hop instrumentals out of the N64's iconic, nostalgic audioscape. This mix showcases his lo-fi sound in all its faded, warbling, crackling glory.

_lip also actively produces under innumerable other monikers, never focusing any one sonic fingerprint for too long. At least half this mix is original.

As an audio ghost, _lip has up until now remained barely traceable, but his recently founded SLF Tapes digilabel ( is poised to serve as homebase for his efforts as well as those of other members of the international SP beat community. Inaugurating the catalogue is a 5-track EP from _lip's Warm Thighs moniker.

Still, the M.O. is anonymity, letting the music speak for itself.
