Eliot Lipp The Outside
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Mush
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
Nomadic beatsmith Eliot Lipp has wandered and recorded all across the States, absorbing regional sounds with ease. Now living in Brooklyn, the Tacoma, WA-reared act is back with The Outside, an album that’s both futuristic and gritty. Pushing the limits of his old-school synths, Lipp draws from a range of glitchy and gleaming effects. And when he’s at his most speaker-conscious he taps into classic Brooklyn bounce, backing tracks like “The Machine and the Wind” and “Baby Tank” with body-rocking riddims. More straightforward selections, like the electro-inspired “The Meaning,” aren’t quite as fun. Although even among the unsurprising moments, Lipp still kills it.
