Dark Party is the new collaboration between Brooklyn-based electronic musician/engineer Eliot Lipp and San Fran turntablist/audio manipulator Leo 123. “We met in San Francisco a few years back, but didn’t start this project until recently,” says Lipp. “These [new] songs are inspired by our favorite classic electro, techno, and hip-hop producers.” Dark Party’s first full-length album is due on Mush Records. Lipp has been in Charleston several times this year, playing synth- and sample-heavy sets behind his new psychedelic album Peace Love Weed 3D. Lipp and Leo 123 kick off a two-month summer tour in Charleston on Friday night. Local performer DJ:C3 (of electronic/funk act Bitch Please), electro/hip-hopper Robert Rice, and crunky DJ BootySweat (from Lexington, Ken.) share the bill.
