(2xLP, coloured schwarz & blaue Spritzer) Der norwegische Rapper, Musiker und Produzent hat schon mit Banks, Little Steven, Chance The Rapper oder Disclosure gearbeitet.
For someone who went from growing up in a secluded Norwegian forest to producing for some of the biggest hip-hop and pop megastars on the planet, Peder Losnegard has had quite the journey. It was through a series of remixes that Lido catapulted into the sets of the most high-profile DJs around the globe, capturing the ears of numerous notable tastemakers. Reworking acts like Disclosure and Bill Withers, the producer set the Internet ablaze with talk of his four-note piano tag and speculation as to who was underneath the moniker. While his playful, restless musicality saw him adopt an array of aliases — but he’ll keep those under wraps for now. Debuting on Pelican Fly with 2014’s ‘I Love You’ EP, followed by the ‘Superspeed’ EP, and remixes of Banks, Alt-J and MØ, Lido’s anti-formulaic style emerged. His tracks bounce from one idea to another voraciously, but always with that clear Lido stamp. You don’t just get a drum and a bassline on a track of his; you’re more likely to get an entire string or brass section that elevates his sound to cinematic heights.
