SUMMER IS HERE and I couldn’t think of a better way to kick it off than the release of Lido‘s debut EP on Pelican Fly entitled I Love You. We previewed Money not too long ago and I had some pretty high expectations for this release but… it turned out even better than expected. There is something beautifully theatric about this release that has me believing Lido IS the next big thing. Already a prolific force in the music world with several successful music projects and international appeal… if this sound were to go mainstream, there is no doubt that Lido would rise to Skrillexesque fame.
The EP, as any debut EP should be, is a characterization of the ‘Lido sound.’ His music has strong RnB influences blended with Jersey club, wonky synths, 808s, detuned vocals, gentle acoustic timbres and booming, dramatic basslines that tie everything together into a unique but epic package. Nobody is making music quite like this.
My favorite track has to be I Love You Pt. 2 but the whole EP just moves so smoothly from start to finish… I’d say its definitely worth the $2.99 on itunes if you’re looking to be an early supporter of an incredible artist and what’s looking to be an incredible label (Pelican Fly). You know what to do. Now I just need Lido to give me a copy of that Gatorade remix, I’ve been playing that **** on piano for weeks now.
