Brooklyn-based producer/musician Eliot Lipp and Philadelphia-based indie-electro rockers Brothers Past ring in 2012 with a gala event at the famed Canal Club in Richmond, VA. Lipp will hold down the late-night spot while local dance trio Existor will open the night. On December 29, Lipp joins the New Deal at Baltimore’s Sound Stage as part of his NYE run of shows.Lipp just released How We Do: Moves Made (October 4, 2011 / Old Tacoma Records). A versatile talent respected in the competitive world of electronic music by being equally at ease with pushing forth the latest production techniques as well as with the time-honored, How We Do finds Lipp “On the cutting edge of beatwork.” (urb.com) The album pushes out fresh electronic music that reaches back to the golden age of American Soul, and “Eliot Lipp absolutely nails this marriage of sounds.” (StreetDate.Radio)How We Do: Moves Made is borne out of a longtime friendship between Eliot Lipp and Jasia 10, and hearkens back to when they were kids, digging for grooves at House of Records in Tacoma, a meeting point that happened to be halfway between each of their childhood homes. They waded through countless stacks of obscure records in search of that one best moment to swipe and loop into a hip-hop beat, learning a lot about jazz, funk, G-funk, and other pillage-worthy sounds along the way.Lipp’s seven-year strong discography includes releases for the Eastern Developments, Hefty, Metatronix, and Mush labels as well as his own label Old Tacoma Records, named after his hometown. Unlike the typical Old Tacoma release, which atypically pushes forth future frontiers with artists Dark Party, Leo 123, Mike Bubbles, and Sir Charles, as well as the label’s next release from Samples, How We Do: Moves Made exists in its own reminiscent funked-out space.Also just released on Old Tacoma Records is Samples’ full-length album, Malbec. Malbec marks the second release for Samples, who is already one of the fastest growing names in electronic dance music. For Eliot Lipp, it’s Samples’ use of multiple electronic music styles and scenes to create his own unique voice that prompted Lipp to add him to the label’s small, hand-picked roster.Eliot Lipp and Samples first met while Lipp was on tour in Samples’ home state of Colorado. When the two collaborated for a tune on Lipp’s most recent remix project, “BroLabs Remix Project,” the bond of mutual respect for each other’s work was solidified. The rest is, as they say, history [in the making].Look for Eliot Lipp’s first solo album in three years to be released in the early part of 2012.-Thursday, December 29 @ 9:00PM (Doors @ 7:00PM)Sound Stagewith The New Deal124 Market Place Baltimore, MDTickets $25 / All Ages WelcomeFor more information, please visit www.baltimoresoundstage.comSaturday, December 31 @ 9:00PM (Doors @ 8:00PM)Canal Clubwith Brothers Past and Existor1545 Easy Cary Street Richmond, VATickets $20 adv, $25 dos / All Ages WelcomeFor more information, please contact 804-643-8528 or visit www.thecanalclub.comThe complete list of current Eliot Lipp tour dates is as follows:Thursday, November 17 Lit Lounge Fayetteville ARFriday, November 18 Newby's Memphis TNSaturday, November 19 Martin's Jackson MSThursday, December 1 The Underground Oklahoma City OKFriday, December 2 The Green Elephant Dallas TXSaturday, December 3 Wrecker's Lubbock TXWednesday, December 7 Fox Theatre Boulder COThursday, December 8 Hodi's Half Note Fort Collins COFriday, December 9 Three20South Breckenridge COSaturday, December 17 Rotture Portland ORThursday, December 29 Sound Stage Baltimore MD with The New Deal
