Eliot Lipp

Eliot Lipp

Saturday, October 6

Eliot Lipp can be bombastic, or he can be relaxed; he can be soulful or mechanical. Depending on the record or DJ set you’re listening to, the electronic dance music producer from Brooklyn by way of San Francisco, can change his style with the flip of a switch. Lipp has been consistent with his releases. His technical skills have shone through since his first self-titled release in 2004 when he emerged from the L.A. electronic scene after glitch-hop producer Prefuse 73 discovered his unique style and signed him to his label. That first record was mostly instrumental hip hop but since then Lipp has released a handful of albums that have greatly expanded his sound, from the liquid electro of 2006’s Tacoma Mocking Bird to the jazzy bass of his latest album Shark Wolf Rabbit Snake. Released earlier this year, Shark Wolf Rabbit Snake is faster at times and more diverse from track to track than the Lipp’s previous material, aspects that allow the producer/DJ plenty of wiggle room in his live set where he can bounce from mellow to frantic and from Detroit hip hop to synth heavy electro. Lipp returns to Buffalo for a set at Duke’s this Saturday (Oct 6) —cory perla
