Steele Street Scraps
Eliot Lipp: Steele Street Scraps (October 2006) On Lipp's third LP, Steele Street Scraps, he collaborated with renowned electronic musicians John Hughes and Earmint. The Washington native coats an array of dancey drum samples for his Steele Street Scraps EP, which, with seven newbies and a few remixes, is a little longer than average. A couple of scratches sneak in and out of whining Moog lines for ‘The Intro,’ and the brief ‘Gangsta Shit’ loops wouldn't have been out of place on Gang Starr's Daily Operation. The party dies down somewhat when vinyl cracks lend a cozy sense of nostalgia on a gorgeously layered sampled bed of guitar harmonics and bass called ‘Harmonix;’ it's weighty evidence that this beat maker, as much as he seems to dig on his older keyboards, is consistently surprising his audience with a colorful approach.
