Maybe he named his latest record Peace Love Weed 3D, but given the energy and eclectic nature of the new tracks, it’s hard to believe Eliot Lipp was smoking any mind-altering, brain-numbing substance when he was making the album.

Armed once again with his vast collection of analog gear, the New York-based producer has crafted another collection of beat-heavy tracks, though this time around, his style is considerably more varied. This is the first time Lipp’s used a studio guitarist (some dude named Guitar Ron who he reportedly met in the subway), and he deviates from his trademark instrumental hip-hop quite a bit here, venturing into electro, acid, and Italo-inspired sounds.
