Blackbird Blackbird
Blackbird Blackbird
Active since April 2010, Blackbird Blackbird (Formerly Bye Bye Blackbird), a.k.a. Mikey Sanders, is a prolific dream pop artist from San Francisco, CA.

Seemingly always working on new material, Blackbird Blackbird’s collaborations with female vocalists (including Emily Reo, Steph Thompson) have allowed him to take his music to an entirely new level.

Reminiscent of Gold Panda or Washed Out crossed with female-fronted vocal samples, Blackbird Blackbird has transcended attempts to denounce him as merely “fitting in” with a specific genre or classification.

Blackbird Blackbird is constantly releasing fresh tracks on
bandcamp and myspace.

Blackbird Blackbird has also generated a huge following on
Hypem and is frequently listed on the Top 100 and climbing the charts as one of hypem’s most blogged artists.

In interviews Mikey has discussed growing up highly influenced by My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, M83, Joy Division, and New Order. His music and style are unique, experimental and unclassifiable.

This guy knows how to build tension and suspense and break new ground without loosing sight of quality craftsmanship." - Magnetic Magazine
After more than ten years of global touring, seven solo albums on labels such as Pretty Lights Music, Old Tacoma Records, Hefty, 1320 and Mush, Eliot Lipp's status as an electronic music pioneer is known to scene experts and weekend warriors alike. Named one of Vibe Magazines top 10 fastest rising DJs (Summer 2013) Vibe says “ Eliot Lipp is making moves! ...Signed to Pretty Lights Music, Lipp's omnivorous taste in music expands to include everything from electro to funk to indie to downtempo and trap.” Lipp's music tastefully spans genres, styles and techniques. Musically, Lipp is taking chances that are paying off in big ways. In a recent interview with Jay Z’s blog Life+Times, Lipp commented that “People are scared to set themselves apart from the norm, but risks need to be taken in order to progress.”Perhaps this is what sets Lipp apart from the rest. He is a risk taker, not afraid to do something a little different.
