Eliot Lipp & Jasia 10 – How We Do: Moves Made
Eliot Lipp is a Brooklyn based producer who before ‘How We Do: Moves Made’ I was unfamiliar with. For me ‘How We Do: Moves Made’ was just the right introduction to the producer. The album is easy to listen to, concise, layered, imaginative, and creative. The album starts with a great get up and go song “Sunrise” that I’ve found myself listen to while enjoying my morning coffee and cigarette and the entire album lends itself to the title of the track. Being a perfect morning soundtrack for anyone who can appreciate a quality musician and someone who is obviously dedicated to their craft.
The album which is a collaboration between Lipp and Jasia 10 is skillfully crafted without the in your face element that has become far too common amongst electronic artists. For centuries we’ve used music to illicit emotion from the listener and this album in no way falls short of delivering that. From ominous dark lows and pure sexy and lust driven tones of “Guilty Pleasure” to the bouncing and funky beats of “The Urge” the album captures a range of emotions and explores them without dissonance. Using vocals sparingly the duo challenges the listener to create their own meaning. What really set the atmosphere of the entire album to me was this layering of sound that kept building in my head. As an artist this album makes me want to reach for the closest pen, paintbrush, or other tool and start working.
When all is said and done I really enjoyed this introduction to Eliot Lipp & Jasia 10. Lipp’s Old Tacoma Records seems to bursting at the seams with new young talent at the moment and have some of the better releases in the electro-dance genre. It goes without saying that Lipp and crew will definitely be a force to be reckoned with.
