This post is for Dave Tipper who’s dealing with a serious health condition. It always makes me cringe to hear these types of stories, but fact of the matter is that we live in a cruel country, where even the best have to worry about getting their medical expenses covered by so-called insurance companies. The text below is from the Addictech website and describes Tipper’s current situation. Here’s his most recent post from his Facebook page.
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 ([email protected]) 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.
Here’s what the Additech label website has underneath the release.
