LidoLido, a 21 year old Norwegian producer, has been impressing recently with his fusion of trap, electro and sick as fuck synths; They are akin to Flume or Cashmere Cat, perhaps not coincidentally as the latter is a close associate (click ‘continue reading’ for a video of the two playing live together in Oslo in 2012).
Real name Peder Losnegård, Lido began his music career as a hip hop artist, releasing free online mixtapes with Fairplay Entertainment in 2009. Over the ensuing years, while Peder continued to create hip hop and rap songs, elements of the sound he fully unleashed earlier this year can be heard; trap drums here, smooth synths there. We, and we assume anyone with functioning ears, are grateful he has turned his talents towards EDM.
Lido released his debut EP (featuring the track ‘I Love You’ linked above) on the 23rd July this year.
It’s awesome. Buy it. The Satisfying Sound Team.
