The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

I’ve already recommended that you check out the Eliot Lipp show Friday night at Lava, and I would like to suggest that you also check out his blog, Electronic Beats. Short on bloggy personal narratives and long on MP3s from his collection, it’s the virtual equivalent of hanging around one of those DJs who can’t seem to have a conversation that doesn’t include the words “You should really check this out.” And Lipp’s definitely not a genre snob–in one eight-day span he posted tracks by minimalist techno producer Wolfgang Voigt, Miami bass godfather DJ Magic Mike, and Robert Fripp. I can vouch for the quality of most of the stuff he’s posted, but I’m a little too scared to try out the Ray Parker Jr. joint he’s got up there.
