Kris Wu (feat. Travis Scott) – Deserve [Lido Remix]

This post was originally published on this site

Lido has broken through to the mainstream in recent times, garnering critical support for his releases of Portugal, The Man’s seminal pop track “Feel It Still” and a massive collaborative effort with THEY on “Not Enough.” These singles came after a slew of forward-thinking outputs over his years in music that had already made the burgeoning talent a must-watch.

Now, the Norwegian producer has released an official remix of Kris Wu’s sleek single “Deserve” featuring Travis Scott. Scott’s atmospheric vocals act as a heady backdrop to Lido’s saturated bass lines and spaced out synths; the track is a pointed example of why Lido’s artistic progression continues to fuel his global notoriety.

 

Former Flosstradamus member YehMe2 has also released a funk wave house remix of the track, which features popping synths and instrumental drums that play like an indie dance track.

Breaking: Trippy Turtle to set out on final tour in 2018

This post was originally published on this site

Less than a year after re-surfacing from a nearly four-year hiatus and releasing his debut five-track EP, The Trippy, Trippy Turtle has revealed plans for his final tour set to take place in 2018.

Trippy Turtle has remained fairly active within the last six months, spanning a new EP, a tour and a bass-heavy Halloween remix compilation, which was released on his own FoFoFadi Records. While it may appear as though Trippy Turtle was only just getting started, parting ways with touring has been on the Jersey Club producer’s mind for quite some time. In an effort to raise awareness surrounding environmental protection and hearing health, the Last Leg tour has partnered with EarPeace, Dancing Astronaut and Electric Family.

Dancing Astronaut readers will gain special access to a pre-sale starting Friday, December 8 here with the password “DancingAstronaut”.

French DJ Petit Biscuit has teamed up with popular Norwegian musician Lido to produce a mellow, yet catchy, single titled, “Problems.”

Low tempo sounds offer a softer start to the track, as the energy builds up to the chorus where a thriving bass blends effortlessly into the soulful lyrics lent by Lido. With melodic synths shared by Petit Biscuit and powerful chords by the multi-talented Norwegian musician, the two work together to bring fresh, forward-thinking sounds to the composition. The single is a teaser in anticipation of Petit Biscuit’s debut album which is set to release this Friday.

Lido is celebrating the one-year anniversary of his debut album, Everything, by giving avid fans more than just his music.

The Norwegian producer released signed limited edition vinyl copies and sheet music from the album. He’s also revealed an unreleased version of his track, “Only One,” that features the vocals of GoldLink.

“Only One” features hypnotic melodies that give the song depth and beauty. GoldLink’s smooth vocals add a completely different element to the track. The concise yet personal verse paints a picture of a life-changing ex, with Lido’s production tying everything together for something powerful, yet spiritual.

“Only One” is another example of the producer’s smooth, consistent production.

The Norwegian virtuoso Lido has returned with yet another new rapturous reworking, this time hitting GoldLink’s even-keeled “Crew.”

Ripping apart the tune’s pace entirely, he eases into the track, showcasing his expansive musical repertoire in a piano introduction. Once GoldLink comes around with the first verse, Lido picks up the pace, and the track takes off. Similar to his reworking of GoldLink’s “Sober Thoughts” released just last year, the flip is filled with energy, and by the time the second round of verses rolls around, things are up to full speed.

Chicago is currently experiencing a golden moment in the city’s already legendary hip-hop history, largely behind the work of young up-and-coming figures like Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, and Towkio, among others. Preston Oshita, better known as Towkio, is staking his claim in the current hip-hop space with his dexterous lyrical hopscotching and adventurous flow, and he’s no stranger to working with some of electronic music’s brightest forward-thinkers. Past collaborators include Kaytranada, Mr. Carmack, as well as Lido, who produced the rapper’s latest single “Drift.”

On the production end, “Drift” finds Lido on a screeching joy ride, putting together a hypnotic rap beat broken up by infectious half time breaks and off-kilter clinks and kicks. The track marks Towkio’s major label debut, recorded at Rick Rubin’s legendary Shangri La studio in Malibu. Towkio’s latest also comes complete with a high-octane new music video that fits the track’s name perfectly. “Drift”takes on a DIY-inspired filming style, catching the rhymer everywhere from pyramids in Mexico, to the middle of a drifting car’s tightly wound figure eight. Pulling out all the stops with fast cars, bikes, and even hot air balloons, Towkio who also assisted Todd Burr in directing the new video, delivers a one-two punch on “Drift.”

This producer remixed every song on Lido’s ‘Everything’

This post was originally published on this site

Taking cues from Lido himself, who remixed Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo into one 8-minute extravaganza, Milwaukee producer Melvv has compiled all 11 tracks from Lido’s album, Everything, into a single, 10 minute long remix. Entitled “What If Everything’s Not Everything,” the remix takes samples and slices from Everything and puts them on top of a heady mix of rollicking bass, smooth chords, and infectious groove.

Given that he’s tasked with fitting 11 songs worth of material into a single song, Melvv reduces each track on Everything to its most memorable elements and adds his own touches and layers. The track moves between moods and energy levels efficiently, which is appropriate when reworking something with as much dynamic diversity as Everything. The remix-an-album-into-one-track form has been gaining popularity since Lido put his spin on Kanye, and it’s interesting and truly gratifying to see that kind of innovation come full circle.

Lido’s ‘Everything’ is an ambitious, exhilarating debut [Album Review]

This post was originally published on this site

If there’s one thing that we’ve all come to expect from Peder Losnegård, the Norwegian singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist better known as Lido, it’s that he refuses to be bound by convention.

After making a name for himself with unorthodox remixes for artists like Zhu and BANKS and the spectacular I Love You EP, Lido has continued to evolve through collaborative projects like SuperspeedThe Passion Project, and experimental remixing like The Life of Peder. So, when he announced his debut album back in April, and its ambitious title Everything, fans were understandably quite excited to see what Lido would do next.

Fans can rest assured, the production on the album is some of the most adventurous and exciting of the year. A gifted pianist and drummer, Lido’s uniquely blistering musicality is on full display in Everything. The album’s arrangements are as complex and layered as an orchestral score, full of so many variations, shifting motifs, and flourishes that one can listen to these songs a dozen times and still pick out details they missed the last time.

The producer’s ingenuity is on full display and aspects of Everything–the introductory verse of ‘Citi Bike,” for example, which is made up of dozens of different vocal cuts and clips, all pitched and panned around–strike the listener as the kinds of things that no other producer would even think of attempting.

 

Lido’s manifold influences, from gospel to hip hop, R&B to electronica, blend beautifully on the record. The opening strings and chimes of “Angel” drift back and forth into ethereal R&B before crashing headfirst into a titanic future bass climax of piercing synths and crunchy horn stabs. Not one piece is dissonant or out of place. It gives the album a sound that’s at once familiar and refreshingly singular.

Songs, like the spectacular “Murder,” are built around tried and true elements: 808’s, chopped-up and pitched-around vocal samples, shimmering sawtooth synth chords, but all are filtered through Lido’s eclectic sensibilities and augmented with a persistent, alluring sense of rhythm and forward movement which imbues them with new, exciting life.

With Everything, Lido utilizes the album as a form. From the screaming synths of curtain-raiser “Catharsis,” to the bombastic fireworks of “Crazy,” to the haunting organ flutters and gentle groove of standout track “Only One,” the energy and dynamics of the album shift from moment to moment with ease. Samples and melodic ideas are employed across multiple songs, taking on new and layered meanings in their changing contexts like repeated lines in a villanelle.

That an album as ambitious as Everything should fail to achieve the full scope and promise of its title is nearly inevitable. Described by Lido himself as something of a concept album detailing the fallout of a nasty breakup, the album is full of emotional turmoil. This turmoil manifests itself most evidently, and at times, most exhaustingly, in Lido’s lyrics, which aim for vulnerability but often fall somewhere between the melodramatic and the downright absurd (“I would die if you would dye your hair”).

This tendency pervades the LP.  It lurks in the background, corroding its strengths, particularly on the near-preposterous five minute piano and vocal solo “You Lost Your Keys.” The album is also problematized by the narrator’s persisting sense of ownership of the female character. The narrative does little to make her seem like more than a canvas for the speaker’s projections of desire and angst.

It’s an album that has its share of rough edges and messiness, and perhaps that’s the point. Perhaps Everything uses its moments of self-indulgence to communicate the fracturing and irrational nature of heartbreak. And underneath all the lyrical reaches and technical virtuosity, there are real moments of emotional intimacy here, moments when it transcends its premise and achieves genuine greatness. It is enormously exciting to see an artist willing to bend the rules and take risks the way Lido does with this album, and, for the most part, he triumphs in grand fashion.

Lido’s ‘Everything’ is available to stream now on Spotify.
