Eliot Lipp is excited to announce his upcoming Spring Tour dates. These dates will feature a couple shows with Conspirator (Syracuse, Buffalo) and a Red Bull Music Academy Session in Nashville on March 24th. The tour wraps up the weekend of April 20th with two shows…one at the Grog Shop in Cleveland Heights, the other in Detroit at the Majestic Theater w/ SuperDre on Saturday the 21st. More dates to be added!
Lipp will also be releasing a new album this spring - stay tuned for more info on the official album release.
After more than eight years of global touring, seven solo albums, countless collaborations, label-head tastemaking and vital artist-incubator in the USA's most critical beat-making cities (SF, Chicago, NYC), 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 fetishistic love of analogue 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, his songwriterly connection to music's storytelling possibilities, even without words.
