Eliot Lipp didn’t choose to become one of the most looked to artists in contemporary electronic music, but somehow, Lipp’s sound, one that uses vintage gear to create a unique take on Hip Hop and House, has quickly garnered the respect among the industry’s most influential musicians and producers as well as the deep admiration among audiences worldwide.
Since being discovered by Scott Herren (aka Prefuse 73) in the mid 2000’s, and releasing albums on the cutting edge labels Eastern Developments, Mush and Hefty as well as backing the hype with a relentless touring schedule of influential live shows all over the globe, Lipp has quickly become one of the barometers for the revival of electronic music in the States.
Tonight's journey was a FUNtastic one! DJ Muffin was in the studio the entire time and even participated in "Muffin's Picks", by running around finding the tunes selected by YOU, our KBOO family!
Many thanks to all who called with their "Muffin's Picks". Thank you for sharing your love of music with us and fellow listeners.
Tonight's show also included a special spoken word "open mic" flashback! I played segments of all the spoken word contributions to "Paula's Picks" so far. It was a lovely revisit of the amazing poems and short stories written by talented local and not-so-local artists!
As always, here is the information for local/independent artists featured on "Paula's Picks".

I highly recommend picking up a copy of the Anthology for you and a friend. Pick up a copy and drop it off at your local youth community centre/shelter/space. The Kicked Out Anthology was printed by Homofactus Press.
Tonight we hear about the House of Sound and it’s vibrant history as a community and cultural space from community members, and former employees and customers: Clifford Walker, Mel Renfro, Ken Dickson, David Dawson, Yugen Rashad, Cleo Smith, Billy Holt, Woodrow Wilson, Jr., Keedah Giannetti, and Wone.
Special thanks to those who helped make this show possible, including Yugen Rashad, Vanessa Renwick, and Charles Bedford.
