A great artist often adapts to the environment around them while embracing their own creative vision. Nothing more true can be said about Norwegian producer, singer, songwriter and recording artist 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 for a long list of critically acclaimed chart-topping heavyweights including, Chance The Rapper, Jaden Smith, Banks, Alt-J, Bastille, Halsey and Disclosure to name a few.
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 DJs 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. 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.
