In The Nude
PUT THIS IN YOUR DEN for a cocktail of Blockhead’s hip-hop beats, stirred with Eliot Lipp’s synth-laden electronic swing, resulting in a singular tasty style unique from the individual ingredients. Somewhere between the big beat of the 90s and contemporary downtempo, Lipphead provides the soundtrack to a chillout, cleaning binge, or a burning by the candlelight work session.
Available on black wax
Lipphead is a production duo consisting of veteran producers Blockhead (Ninjatune, Future Archive Recordings) and Eliot Lipp (Alpha Pup) creating playful instrumental hip hop creations that traverse wide musical territories.
Lipphead’s sound is an infectious blend of atmospheric downtempo and driving electro funk. Releasing via Michigan label Young Heavy Souls, the duo has crafted a truly individual sonic aesthetic that benefits from the significant wealth of musical talent and experience they both bring to the project.
Illustrated by artist Maddison Chaffer, the titular Lipphead character serves as the group’s mascot and as a tongue-in-cheek personification of the duo’s fused styles.
On the production of the album Blockhead explained “I would say, with this album in general, it was both of us taking things we were working on that we liked but couldn’t find a home for. For us this was a very “there are no rules” type venture. We allowed ourselves to be silly and unconventional with all these songs.”
Eliot Lipp went on to say “My favorite thing about the record is the audio cocktail that comes together when our two styles are blended. It’s refreshing to make music with such a loose process. We found ourselves focusing on our strengths, and trusting that our individual styles would complement each other.”
