It was a big week for Brooklyn based electronic DJ and producer, Eliot Lipp. Lipp’s in the middle of a national tour and just celebrated the release of his newest LP out on Pretty Lights Music, Watch the Shadows, which is a deliciously diverse collection that fuses hip-hop sounds, synth beats and vocals for tracks that keep you guessing, “what’s next?”
Even though I caught Eliot while he was getting over a cold, it didn’t stop the ambitious artist from sharing his excitement about recent collaborations, his most anticipated tour stops and tips for staying healthy on the road.
Megan Venzin: Where do you feel like you get most of your influences for producing music?
Eliot Lipp: Probably from listening to my friends music and listening to stuff with other producers that I hang out with. I’m influenced a lot by them, also from playing live and recently kind of starting to make me want to make more club and dance music.
MV: And this your something like your 7th or 8th release!
EL: Something like that, I can’t really remember but it’s getting up there. (Laughs)
MV: How do you feel like your sound has evolved over time, and how have you grown as a performer?
EL: There’s a lot more layers. I’m trying to make it so musically there’s more depth to it, but I don’t know I’m also trying to get better at the engineering side of it. I took a mixing and mastering class at Dubspot in New York and that helped me quite a bit, just learning the technical aspects of being a producer.
