Eliot Lipp is an American electronic music artist from Brooklyn, New York. He made a name for himself in the genre of electro when his work was picked up by Scott Herren of Prefuse 73 (Warp Records). Through Herren, Lipp was able to release his debut studio album S/T through the Eastern Developments Music label in November 2004. Los Angeles was very much a temporary home for Lipp. It was a move that he made for his love of music and his pursuit of making it his career.

Beginnings Eliot Lipp grew up in Tacoma, Washington. He maintained a strong and passionate interest in hip-hop and rap music while living there and followed such artists as RZA and Hieroglyphics. He knew that he couldn’t have pursued a career in music if he continued to live there. Lipp described his hometown as, always refreshing when you hang out up there, I couldn’t have done music if I stayed in Tacoma On Lipp's third LP, Steele Street Scraps, he was able to collaborate with renown electronic musicians John Hughes and Earmint. He recently released a new album in January of 2009 called, "Peace Love Weed 3D", which features the single, Beamrider. It was first reported in ur. om. Eliot Lipp once again relocated, leaving for Brooklyn, where he currently resides and is currently working on a side project Lipp service.

Eliot Lipp drops into the same space occupied by quasi-abstract beat makers Prefuse 73 and Dabrye, while continuing in the lineage staked out by some of the producers gathered on the Mo' Wax Headz series. He stacks up to none of them, but not without leaving an impression, on his first album for Eastern Developments (the label run by Prefuse 73, also the temporary home of Dabrye). Though all of these tracks are sharply assembled without the use of overfamiliar sounds and overused samples, most aren't likely to stick in your head for any extended length of time.

Eliot Lipp's eponymous debut comes on the heels of the great merging of IDM and hip-hop, and you can hear the strains of those two coming together right away on "Beverly Rhode" before "Deep" and "Cashed" bring an infusion of funk. "Next Beat" hews more closely to traditional downtempo, with its easy listening samples and loping beat, while "Gordo" steals a quick accordion and horn from the Gotan Project's page and re-writes it. "Ballkid" has a touch of psychedelia in its swirl of sounds, but the moodiness of "Neutral" speaks much louder. The tracks, though short, could perhaps use more musical development other than the addition of layers ("Abercrombie and Pitch" is a good example of this), but that doesn't detract from the overall enjoyment. Instead let the Western twang of "Like No Tomorrow" hums gently in your ear as "Linc" brings the hip-hop sample more to bear, pairing it with a Spanish guitar strum. A harbinger of more good stuff to come.
I first heard about this album while perusing the turntablelab website a few weeks ago. I read their review of it and from what I read, it sounded pretty interesting. This album was constructed using a really beat synth and a shifty sampler according the review. I was intrigued. I then clicked on the sound samples. Boy, was I impressed. This album is dirty. Dirty in a good way. It sounds completely raw. The beats reminded me of 36 Chambers era RZA and the melodies sounded like Bob James playing a really beat Fender Rhodes. No sound collage business on here but moody, quirky, and fun pieces of music which you can put on and sink in to. If you go to the Eastern Developments website, you can find a few pictures of Eliot and one shows him with his setup. This album was constructed using what looked like a Boss SP 202 Phrase Sampler (it feels good to know that I am not the only one who uses this machine), a Sequential Circuits Six Trak synthesizer which has a few knobs missing and a broken key or two, and maybe a laptop. Knowing that Mr. Lipp put this album together using an old beat up synth and a really shifty sampler added to the album's ambience. Pick it up, you will not be disappointed. In my opinon, it's the best downtempo release of '04. Cheers.
