As the lines between musician and performer blur with DJ and electronic music maker, sounds are created by whatever is available, from a drumbeat to the computer and everything in between, a place where music exists by intent. Prominent DJ/producer Eliot Lipp brings in the normal sampling of existing music then adds bits and pieces of keyboard riffs to make an interesting and spectacular foray into modern electronic music on his upcoming release, How We Do: Moves Made. Lipp’s first solo record in three years is based on work with longtime acquaintance Jasia 10, a childhood friend and fellow DJ at House of Records in Tacoma, Wash. Lipp, now a six-year resident of Brooklyn, N.Y., and an integral part of the burgeoning electronica scene, released records for the Eastern Developments, Hefty, Metatronix, and Mush labels as well as his own label, Old Tacoma, over the previous seven-year stretch. The latest release is said to “exist in its own reminiscent funked-out space,” and surely it does.
