Eliot Lipp’s status as an electronic music pioneer is known to scene connoisseurs and weekend warriors alike. Lipp’s omnivorous tastes are apparent, from the obvious funk and myriad manifestations of hip-hop though less explicit reference points as jazz fusion, folk and techno. His well-earned reputation as a producer’s producer stems in part from his craftsmanship. Never content with well-worn breaks and effects, his work incorporates a love of analog gear with sampledelic flourishes, intricate rhythmic patterns and more than a few leftfield surprises. But his melodic instincts and tunefulness are what have earned him such wide appeal, as well as his connection to music’s storytelling possibilities, even without words. Since his arrival on the scene, Lipp has displayed an intuitive knack for teasing melodies out of rhythmic bangers, and he draws from a remarkably mature sonic palette. These two qualities immediately set the young instrumental producer apart. Since his promising debut, Lipp has played to his strengths while creating an imposing body of work with a style uniquely his own.
