Elliot Lipp Peace Love Weed 3D
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Old Tacoma
- XLR8R Rating: 7.5/10
Eliot Lipp’s premiere release on his newly formed Old Tacoma imprint is another solid step forward for this Brooklyn-based synth specialist. Originally recorded to analog tape and then tweaked, these beats are retro and, at times, risky. “Sentinel” is among the best of the bunch, blending 8-bit arcade blips, snappy synths, and tribal-minded riddims into one concrete cut. Lipp does get too carried away with sound effects on tracks like “Glowstick,” but he balances things out with a little live instrumentation on the dusty electro-funk-tinged “Sandcastle”—one of the most multi-layered numbers here. For the bulk of this LP, the beat scientist manages to make the old sound brand new again.
