Eliot Lipp

Eliot Lipp (US)

Première canadienneJeune producteur passionné espérant faire percer sa musique, Eliot Lipp a eu la chance qu’une de ses démos ne tombe pas dans l’oreille d’un sourd. C’est en effet Scott Heren, aka Prefuse 73, qui a su apprécier son travail et lui a permis de faire presser son premier album chez Eastern Developments Music. Très downtempo, celui-ci le rapproche du producteur Bonobo et de l’hip-hop instrumental de Rjd2. Depuis, Eliot confirma sa valeur en signant chez Hefty Records et en délivrant Tacoma Mockingbird un album surprenant et personnel, aux accents beaucoup plus électro.Profondément inspiré par Tacoma, sa ville natale qu’il a fuie à l’âge de 18 ans pour s’exiler à Los Angeles, la musique d’Eliot Lipp dégage une nostalgie communicative et une mélancolie intuitive. Cette tendance nostalgique, on la retrouve aussi dans son équipement. Armé de son synthé vintage et de son vieux sampler, Lipp récupère des breaks et des échantillons auxquels ils redonnent une nouvelle vie avec magie. À son trip hop langoureux il rajoute les sonorités imparables de son vieux Korg ainsi qu’une pointe de funk, de disco et de soul qui finissent d’insuffler un vent de fraîcheur à ses productions.

NOCTURNE 2

Canadian DebutAs a young, passionate producer expecting to break through with his music, Eliot Lipp got lucky that one of his demos did not fall on deaf ears. Rather it fell into the hands of Scott Heren AKA Prefuse 73, who appreciated the work and permitted the artist to record his first album at Eastern Developments Music. Very downtempo, it oscillates between the sound of producer Bonobo and the instrumental hip-hop of Rjd2. Since then, Eliot has continued to prove his worth by signing with Hefty Records and releasing Tacoma Mockingbird, a surprising and personal album accentuated by much more electro.Profoundly inspired by Tacoma, his native city that he gave up for Los Angeles at the age of 18, the music of Eliot Lipp emanates with communicative nostalgia and intuitive melancholy. This nostalgic tendency is also found in his choice of equipment: armed with a vintage synthesizer and an old sampler, Lipp resuscitates breaks and samples by magically injecting new life into them.To his sentimental trip-hop mix, he adds the incomparable sounds of his Korg synth, as well as a dash of funk, disco and soul—all which refreshingly infuse his productions.
