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.
Lido has had a banner 2017. He’s thrilled fans with bold remixes, fresh collaborations, and innovative originals — all while fine-tuning his futuristic sound.
He’s rounding out the year with a gripping remix of Peking Duk and Icona Pop‘s “Let You Down.” The Norwegian producer truly shines in this remix, letting a minimalist percussion-centered introduction build to a trippy chorus filled with swirling synth work and choppy vocals.
His take on “Let You Down” oozes classic Lido vibes and is guaranteed to catch the attention of both his longtime fans and new ones. With top-notch production and a sound that’s consistently raw and original, Lido continues to reinforce his status as a world-class musician.
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.

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.”
With a little Lido vibe, up-and-comer Indiginis recently remixed Adventure Club’s “Breathe” for an official release. Featuring SONDAR, “Breathe” was originally an intimate interlude on the DJ duo’s debut album Red // Blue, but Indiginis added fantastic flair for a hot new take on the breathtaking beauty. Not all heroes wear capes — well, the
Reviving the “New Jack Swing” genre with a 2017 flair, Lido and THEY. team up for some new summer heat with “Not Enough.” The Australian producer experiments with a soulful sound on the new original, meeting THEY. in the middle between the two artists’ styles. Based in Los Angeles, the duo known as THEY. provide the 80s-inspired flirty lyrics to the groovy track.
Both artists are hitting major festival dates this year: Lido has upcoming performances at Meadows and Electric Forest on the horizon, while THEY. are set to touch down at Life Is Beautiful later this year.
Alison Wonderland is one of the most exciting artists out there at the moment. While she may be physically small, her sound is beyond massive.
