Review

It’s somewhat ironic that artists look to futuristically inclined styles of the past to retool music of the present day; consider the world of underground hip-hop to be no different. Brooklyn-based beatsmith Eliot Lipp brings his own futuristic take on '80s electro-funk with his 2008 album, THE OUTSIDE. Infusing rugged lo-fi instrumental breaks with slick electronic funk, Lipp masterfully contrasts the music’s rough-hewn analog edge with an expert IDM-inflected programming finesse.
