Throughout his career, Lido has proven himself to be among the most forward-thinking producers around. From his heartfelt debut album, Everything, to his high-energy, career-boosting Soundcloud singles, his unique blend of soul, electronic production, and songwriting prowess has kept everyone intently waiting for his next release. For his latest project, the Norwegian producer has unveiled a seven-minute reimagining of Kanye West and Kid Cudi‘s critically acclaimed album, Kids See Ghosts.
Titled kidsloveghosts, the project is not Lido’s first attempt at creating something from a Kanye West album. In 2016, the artist released The Life of Peder, a similarly eclectic interpretation on West’s The Life of Pablo. Lido once again proves his masterful ear for production and remixing, seamlessly weaving the seven-track project into a comprehensive electronic composition. The piece jumps between stunningly vibrant low-end punches and acoustic, soulful ballads, assisted by Lido’s multi-instrumental talents. Available for free on his website, this is a must hear for Lido, Kid Cudi, and Kanye West fans around the world.

If you need your fix of fresh remixes or emerging hip-hop beats then look no further, today we have the premiere of Grey Goon’s remix of “Told You What To Say”. “Told You What To Say” was originally the opening track on Paperhaus’ 2017 album, “Are These The Questions That We Need To Ask?” This remix
Xan Griffin taps into the lighthearted soul of the track and amplifies it, adding future bass production behind Tonino Speciale’s vocals. He primed the formerly low-key track for the dance floor with a soaring synth theme, backed by layers of atmospheric melodies.

“Slave to the radio,” Sylvan Esso sings, nearly shouting at points on the duo’s early-2017 hit single, “Radio.” It’s a tongue-in-cheek pop tune, a scathing review of the music industry at large, and not to mention, Sylvan Esso’s biggest radio hit to date, though Cut Copy‘s new version is anything but.
Cut Copy’s remix is far removed from the world of the radio. “Radio?” Cut Copy seems to ask, only to answer with a sonic embodiment of the “I haven’t heard that name in years” meme.
Reversing the total taste vacuum that radio so creates, comes Cut Copy’s own version with scintillating synths and billowing grooves that build on each other even halfway through the song with the least of its concerns being the radio.
Few labels foster a roster that runs the gamut from pure ambient to club-ready productions like Anjunadeep. Croquet Club manages to combine the two into a compelling new reproduction on his remix of boerd‘s “Void.”
While boerd’s original skews towards ambient, Croquet Club infuses his remix with a club appeal. He maintains much of the original’s clever vocal productions, but recombines the swirling layers into a midtempo production with crisp, snappy percussion and thick basses. Adroit sound design adds another layer of demure tension to the track that culminates in clever reimagining that is equally indebted to both boerd and Croquet Club.
Producer duo Louis The Child are known over the years for their individual style that is readily evident across their excellent remixes and bouncy originals.

Hotel Garuda reimagines it by kicking the tempo up a notch and, adding a four on the floor beat. In doing so they deliver an excellently house tune that is sprinkled with groovy strumming bass.
Other remixers include Krane, who takes the remix and builds the track into a cinematic wonderland. Picture driving at hyper speed surrounded in emotional chords and following the sound of the heroic lead as it guides you through the bass ridden drop.
Montell2099 also comes in and delivers an uplifting funky soul tune that provokes dancing so be warned.
