BLOCKHEAD returns with a tour featuring special guests Eliot Lipp & Arms and Sleepers, and showcasing music from his upcoming album 'Bubble Bath'.

The internationally renowned NYC producer has released 10 albums over the past 15 years, including four acclaimed records for Ninja Tune and numerous production jobs including notable works with Aesop Rock. He is regarded as one of the modern masters of instrumental hip-hop, and the forthcoming new album sees him return to record-label-released music with the bold and exciting roster at Future Archive Recordings (co-founded by artists Arms and Sleepers, Sun Glitters, Little People and CNJR).

'Bubble Bath' is a record born out of meditative expression and ongoing personal creative challenge, key for a producer of BLOCKHEAD's experience. Carried forward are the incredible hook and sample placement skills of classic works such as 'Uncle Tony's Coloring Book' and 'Music By Cavelight', but what has emerged is an overwhelming sense of natural musicality and sophistication.

"I want the music I make to be unaffected by outside influences. I like the idea of working in a bubble... ...When I have to describe what I do, to someone, it's always a little awkward because it starts as "I'm a musician" and as questions come back it gets broken down. "No, I don't play any instruments" "No, I'm not trained in musical theory" "I make beats". When it comes down to it, everything I do has always been guided by my ears and sensibility."

The first single 'On The Bright Side' is available now, along with the pre-order of Bubble Bath on both digital and vinyl formats: http://futurearchiverecordings.com/blockhead-bubble-bath

ELIOT LIPP is a producer, DJ and sound designer. After more than a decade living in Chicago, Los Angeles and New York (but equally home on the road), the intrepid producer has landed in beautiful Austin Texas. He's been spending most of his time collaborating with musicians, DJing, performing and grinding in the studio. Theres no particular style of electronic music that takes the focus but theres always a good amount of hip-hop and funk influences. Over the years Lipp has developed a palette of electronic beats & soulful samples while crafting a unique style.

    Blockhead

    Hip-Hop/Rap

    Blockhead grew up in downtown New York City. The son of an artist, early on he found his passion was for music. A fan of a whole range of sounds, especially hip-hop, Blockhead steadily built a tremendous collection of tapes and later CDs from innumerable artists. After a brief stint as a rapper, he realized his calling was behind the boards and not on the mic, and from there he began to produce beats. Since making that decision, he’s been one of the busiest producers out there, producing 9 tracks on Aesop Rock’s critically acclaimed album Labor Days, and the majority of the tracks on his followup albums Dayllight EP, Fast Cars, Danger, Fire and Knives, and None Shall Pass. Blockhead has also been working with other indie giants such as SLuG of Atmosphere, Murs, Mike Ladd and Sa Smash. He also found time to complete a break beat album entitled Blockhead’s Broke Beats, with 10 hard hitting instrumental tracks, which was released on Mush Records, the US home of cLOUDDEAD. Showing his artistic variety from only art-rap, Blockhead produced 2 tracks on the newly crowned Skribble Jam Battle Champ, maclethal’s full-length album. He does comedy too. He is a member of the Party Fun Action Committee whose hip-hop/comedy debut album was recently released on the legendary Def Jux.~last.fm
