Boomkat Product Review:
There's something quite appealing to me about Eliot Lipp's patented brand of squelching wonky synth-hop. It's hip hop for sure - the beats are tighter than something I shouldn't probably mention on a page that can be read by minors, but there's more than just beats here, more than just a reference to what's come before. I could reference Dabrye of course, as he has a similar originality and deft talent in hip hop manipulation, but Lipp doesn't sound like Dabrye, instead he has forged a sound indebted to early electronic music (think BBC Radiophonic workshop) just as much as it is indebted to early B-Boy anthems. If you don't believe me all you need to do is place your ears around 'Hard 2 Get' which is as squelchy a piece of hip hop I've ever heard, with a gurgling MS20-sounding bass line that literally makes me weak at the knees. With ten instrumentals and one vocal and mastered nice and loud by the man Supersoul there should be enough here for any self respecting hip hopper to get all red-eyed about. Heavy.
