Indymojo.com and G-9 Collective are proud to bring you this VERY special edition of Altered Thurzdaze….
Eliot Lipp didn’t choose to become one of the most looked to artists in contemporary electronic music, but somehow, Lipp’s sound, one that uses vintage gear to create a unique take on Hip Hop and House, has quickly garnered the respect among the industry’s most influential musicians and producers as well as the deep admiration among audiences worldwide.
Since being discovered by Scott Herren (ak…a Prefuse 73) in the mid 2000’s, and releasing albums on the cutting edge labels Eastern Developments, Mush and Hefty as well as backing the hype with a relentless touring schedule of influential live shows all over the globe, Lipp has quickly become one of the barometers for the revival of electronic music in the States.
Originally hailing from Tacoma, WA, Lipp paid his dues in the underground scenes of almost every primary market in the US, Europe and Asia, including stints in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago before dropping roots in the Brooklyn scene that has continued to produce some of the most recognized artists in contemporary indie and electronic music.
Lipp’s signature sound, a crossbreed of 90’s Hip Hop and House, 70’s Funk fusion as well as classic Electro, has and will continue to breakdown barriers and transpose trendy scenes. Whether programming Hip Hop beats, writing dirty basslines, collaborating with the likes of premier producers, DJs, MCs and musicians, examined by SPIN, URB, Pitchfork and other media or playing popping parties at clubs and festivals worldwide, Eliot Lipp will continue to do his part in revolutionizing electronic music.
Samples (aka Ben Samples), also known for his work in the live remix project Fresh2Death, is a Producer and DJ based out of Denver, CO. He creates and performs electronic dance music, including bass-heavy remixes of club and hip hop favorites, original glitch hop, soulful dub step, funky house or amalgamations of other styles.
Starting his career as a DJ at a well known Colorado radio station, co…vering various styles and genres with a focus on dance music and hip hop, Samples began creating his own hybrid of hip hop and dance music into a club sound that fits as well in theaters and festivals as it does on dance floors.
With a full length album released on Made in Glitch Records, EPs supported by Daly City Records, Simplify Recordings, and True Movement as well as tracks on Muti Music, Run Riot Records, Car Crash Set, Mambo Records, Old Tacoma Records, Global Vortex, and BomBeatz, Samples is one of the most sought out producers and remix artists in the bass music scene with collaborations including some of electronic music’s most influential people. Ranking among the top on charts such as iTunes, Beatport and Addictech has been Samples’ foundation to perform club, event and festival dates all over the country to audiences very familiar with his music.
“Ben Samples is one of the staples when throwing around names in the glitch-hop and mid-tempo genres of music”, (SubSynthesis, 2010) and continues to evolve a unique voice in electronic dance music with his complexity and depth.
