Eliot Lipp - Come to Life
Instrumental Hip-Hop / Synth Funk
Eliot Lipp has been quietly releasing exceptional instrumental hip-hop albums for a decade, and he continues the trend with 2016’s Come to Life. This time around he integrates some lounge jazz and funk elements into his now signature brand of electro. Melodic synth and bass lines amble along, mostly at a comfortable mid-tempo. Everything is super catchy as usual, and while it may not be as immediately striking as earlier works like Shark Wolf Rabbit Snake, the chill vibes and laid back attitude of Come to Life suits Lipp nicely.
