Norwegian newcomer Lido is set to break through in a big way with the release of his debut EP next month, and today we have the privilege of sinking our teeth into Money, the young producer’s very first original track that’s seen the light of day.
Lido has quickly amassed a devoted legion of fans and supporters following the release of his bootleg remix of Latch by Disclosure last month, which got lots of folks talking despite being pulled from the Internet by Universal Records soon after it appeared. Though clearly indebted to forebears like Cashmere Cat, Trippy Turtle, and the Jersey Club scene, Lido ups the ante on every stylistic nod in Money, from the skittering trap percussion, to the choppy, damn-near-orchestral chord stabs which bounce and lurch underneath pitch-shifted vocals.
Money comes from Lido’s forthcoming I Love You EP, out June 9 via Pelican Fly. Pre-order here. While we wait for June to arrive, you’ll probably want to familiarize yourself with Lido’s stellar track record of remixes on SoundCloud.
