About

The Tipping Point unearths the best new music coming out of the UK, tipping our favourite tracks, videos and live shows five days a week, with thousands of music industry figures and new music fans receiving fortnightly email roundups.

We discover our music via a unique Tippers Network of reliable tastemakers across the UK, because of the way our network functions, we are able to tip artists very early on and often before they have a PR team in place. Our Tippers are the most ‘ear-to-the-ground’ bloggers, promoters and new music aficionados in all areas of the country and receive the deserved attention for discovering these artists, by being credited on the blog, mailout and through our social networks.

The Tipping Point started in 2011 and along the way has tipped the likes of Chvrches, Young Fathers, SOHN, Chlöe Howl, Little Simz, Dan Croll, Azekel, Jack Garratt, Peace, Moko, Prides, Royal Blood, Fickle Friends, Gengahr, Jungle, Lapsley, Clean Cut Kid, The Big Moon, C Duncan & VANT.

Who is The Tipping Point?

The Tipping Point is brought to you by Generator’s Talent Development team – Bob Allan and Ged Robinson

Generator is recognised as the UK’s leading music development agency, supporting supporting artists through showcase opportunities and artist development programmes.

Tips are written by our regular national contributors and a selection of the UK’s finest music writers who collectively write for Artrocker, SBtv, NME, Mixmag, Drowned in Sound, The Line Of Best Fit, DIY, the405, Clash, and Crack in the Road.

The team has a strong track record for unearthing and developing new music within the UK, as well as strong links with the commercial music industry and tastemakers. The blog acts as a source of discovering artists who can be developed further through Generator’s Talent Development programme.


Would you like to join our team of writers?

We’re always on the look out for more writers to join our team at Tipping Point Towers, if you’re interested please get in touch ged@generator.org.uk

Do you work in PR?

We tend to tip music direct from the network instead of from PR companies but we sometimes feature music from PR teams as exclusives if we really like it.

Are you a Promoter?

We will soon be launching The Gigging Point which will feature the best new music gigs around the UK, these will be featured on the blog and in our mailout, reaching thousands of readers

We also run showcases in London and at city based festivals so we’re always interested in teaming up with people around the UK regions, if you’re interested in teaming up then please get in touch. We are also looking to build the Tipping Point as a place to find out about promoters who champion new music so we can also do previews on the blog and in the mailout as well as reviews.
