Tip-A-Top Records is the result of of Jay Schaetz's single-minded dedication to re-create an authentic, vintage beat sound. As a devotee of 1950s, '60s and '70s black music for over 25 years, Jay was inspired in 2014 to apply his musical and technical background to build Moonlightgroover Studio, using vintage analogue equipment to reproduce the purity and excitement of those vintage recordings he so loved. After hundreds of creative hours and experimentation, Tip-A-Top Records was formed to provide an output channel for all the sounds coming out of the studio.
Based in the heart of Switzerland, Tip-A-Top aims to provide young, talented musicians with a creative space and a supportive network. But most of all, to have their own groove-based projects released on a dedicated platform. Whether it is Soul, Jazz, Reggae, Funk, Latin, Gospel or R&B – on Tip-A-Top there's something for everyone!
