Eliot Lipp is streaming his entire new album on Billboard.com starting today, May 10th. Lipp's new album, 'Come To Life' was released everywhere on Friday, May 13th.
Through several life changing and artistically inspiring events, 'Come To Life' was born. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Lipp recently made a move from New York City back to his hometown of Tacoma, Washington to be with family during trying times. For the first time in his musical career, Lipp turned to music production as a form of self medication and therapy. Exiting the hustle and bustle of NYC and arriving in the lush and nature filled state of Washington was part of Lipp's recent coming to life. The other part was facing the tragedies and the hardships of life and family. With this new record, Lipp is hoping others can find the same peace, solitude and direction as he did.
Eliot Lipp is a veteran musician and sound designer gearing up to release his 9th studio album,
Come To Life (Old Tacoma Records, Pretty Lights Music) May 13, 2016.After more than a decade living in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York (but equally home on the road), the intrepid producer returned to his roots in the Pacific Northwest before recording the album, much of which came together over a single inspired weekend.
Returning home provided Lipp with new inspirations for his blend of sampledelic funk and techno inspired hiphop beats. The mossy green woods and snowy mountains of the Pacific Northwest were essential to the ambiance and texture of the sounds. The result is a digital landscape filled with beautiful analog creations.
"The music I make is a soundtrack to my life" explains Lipp. "I made this record to help me stay positive while life was being a little rough on me. I discovered a therapeutic power in music I never knew existed."
Come To Life is a musical journey all the way through. The album showcases many different musical stylings and shows off Lipp's musicianship.
"Somewhere between the instrumental hiphop on my first records and my more recent dance floor inspired beats, I found that a certain funk in all of that remains consistent. This new album is about an awakening so I felt it was important to dig back in to my musical past for inspiration. I came back with some well rounded electronic grooves."
In anticipation of the album release, Lipp will hit the road for several dates across the country with Blockhead, as well as Late Night Radio and SuperVision.
