Ah, Colorado — beautiful scenery, people, culture, and the ingredient that makes it work in unison, music. Eliot Lipp put together an outstanding 17-track mix featuring artists exclusively from Colorado. While Lipp moved from the Rocky Mountain State at the age of 3 and has called influential cities such as LA and New York home, it is understandable as to why he would still consider it home after seeing what the others have to offer.
As the most definitive breeding ground for forward-thinking producers in electronic music today a tribute is more than worthy. There must be something in the water. Click the jump for a full track listing.

With electronic music at the gracefully chaotic rise that it is on it is an unfortunate truth that an artist’s talent does not always translate the way it should onto the live stage, occasionally leaving fans with something to be desired walking away from a show. Paper Diamond’s performance last weekend at Chicago’s House of Blues proved, once again, that his passion and dedication lies not only within the walls of the studio but in electrifying his audience with a sensationally addictive experience as well.
The night was supported by opening talent Eliot Lipp. The latest signee to Pretty Lights Music label, Lipp has a tremendous amount of momentum and support after a ground-breaking summer festival season. His production style of an upbeat combination of trap and break-style beats was an ideal prelude to the evening.
Some people around this year get seasonal depression disorder but if you’re like most of us here at IMF, you might be feeling the symptoms from Festival Deprivation Disorder (FDD). Feelings of uncertainty as to what to do with oneself from Thurday through Sunday, the fading of sun-burnt shoulders and noses, and the sudden urge to sleep outside are all common onsets of FDD that need to be addressed appropriately. Fortunately, there is a cure. Paper Diamond will be coming through Chicago this Saturday on his Night Vision Tour with the support of Eliot Lipp to blow the roof off of the House of Blues.
Complete with a fresh new lighting rig specially designed to saturate the senses and coupled with the addition of the undeniably catchy bass-trap sound to his already diverse production style, this will no doubt help you ease back into the Chicago indoor show season in the most late-into-the-night-rage-with-all-your-friends sense of the word. With doors at 11:30pm, the party will be in full effect for the opening support of Paper Diamond, the newest addition to the Pretty Lights Music label, Eliot Lipp. A veteran producer who absolutely threw it down for Friday’s North Coast Music Festival after party at Bottom Lounge, Lipp knows how to drop Chicago right. Tickets are still available with a minimal $2 service charge at the House of Blues box office or if you can’t make it there, on LiveNation’s website.

NY native Eliot Lipp released a special 30-minute summertime mix this past week. As the latest addition to the Pretty Lights Music label, Lipp has a tremendous amount of momentum to carry him through the 2nd half of summer. Playing major festivals such as Camp Bisco in New York and joining the rest of the PLM family at Red Rocks Amphitheater in August, Lipp seems to be once again simultaneously redefining and settling into his sound. This mix is an upbeat combination of trap and break-style beats that reflects Lipp’s diverse production style. This one is sure to be a mix you’ll keep going back to as it works for a wide range of moods.
The newest addition to the Pretty Lights Music label, Eliot Lipp, released his first full-length album on the prestigious label today.

A more detailed IMFmag breakdown of Eliot Lipp can be found here. Dive into the new album below with the track listing available through the ‘more’ link.

Eliot Lipp just signed to a new label – which one?
The coveted Pretty Lights Music Label made an exciting announcement today regarding the latest addition to the ever-growing family of arguably one of the most respected and talented labels in the electronic music game. Hailing in Brooklyn, Eliot Lipp released his first PLM single titled ‘The Sunset’ today. Honing his craft for the better part of the past decade, Eliot Lipp’s sound is a combination of unique, earthy tones flush with break-style foundations and melodies coupled with deeper bass-driven body moving beats that engage every corner of the auditory palate.
Having spent time in some of the most influencing beat-producing cities across the US including San Francisco, Chicago, and NYC, Eliot Lipp is a recognizable name to both underground aficionados and occasional listeners alike. This comes to no surprise as Lipp has graced the covers of hundreds of posters as both a headliner and supporting act, too many festivals to name, as well at seven solo albums across the span of a handful of other respected labels.
