Great artistry has the ability to adapt to its environment while never sacrificing an authentic creative vision. Nothing more true can be said of producer, singer, songwriter, Peder Losnegård, a.k.a Lido. Over the last five years, the multi-instrumentalist and virtuoso has fearlessly carved out his own creative stamp across multiple genres within the musical landscape. He’s produced and remixed some of the most innovative music of the last decade with some critically acclaimed chart-topping heavyweights including, Chance The Rapper, Ella Mai, Banks, Alt-J, Bastille, Halsey and Disclosure to name a few. His solo releases include 2016’s critically praised album, ‘Everything,’ as well as his now infamous 8-minute re-imagining of Kanye West’s ‘Life of Pablo,’ appropriately titled ‘Life of Peder.’ In recent years, Lido produced tracks for Chicago rapper Towkio including his breakout single “Symphony,” which the two performed last February on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Followed by the release of the EP ‘Spacesuit’ with buzzing Seattle rapper J’von. He followed up ‘Life of Peder’ with the highly acclaimed 7-minute project ‘kidsloveghosts,” a re-imagining of Kanye West and Kid Cudi’s latest collaboration ‘Kids See Ghosts,’ hailed by Dancing Astronaut as “stunning” and “masterful.” Entirely self-taught, Lido quickly became a piano prodigy while also excelling on the drums. He got to grips with production at the age of ten which allowed him to develop his own unique production style from an early age. It was through a series of remixes that Lido eventually catapulted into the sets of the most high-profile DJ’s around the globe, capturing the ears of numerous notable tastemakers. Reworking acts like Portugal. The Man and Bill Withers, Lido became an internet sensation, eventually getting signed to record label Pelican Fly/Because Music. Debuting on the label 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.
2019 has already seen production releases from Lido including “Get A Bag” on Chance The Rappers debut album along with opening up Jaden Smith’s album “SYRE” in a 4 part song featuring Lido on the last track. His compositions bounce from one idea to another voraciously, but always with that clear Lido stamp. You don’t just get a drum and a bassline; you’re more likely to get an entire string or brass section that elevates the sound to cinematic heights. Lido’s sophomore album is set to release in early 2020, which encapsulates everything he ever was and has become up to this point in his career. Developing a new genre yet again, Lido’s Galactic R&B toys with a new breed of genre equality that infuses new sounds and garners reactions never before felt.
