A committed approach to pushing boundaries has positioned LA-based, Norwegian producer Lido as prominent fixture in music having produced for a wide range of notable names like Chance the Rapper, Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande, Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, Skrillex, Ludacris, Jaden Smith, Dominic Fike, Jeremih, Saba, Smino, Kenny Beats, Cashmere Cat, Benny Blanco, Chika, Suga of BTS, and A$AP Ferg to name a few. Now newly independent for the first time since he was a teenager, Lido has been obsessively working, this time as his own executor. Most recently, he executive-produced Aminé’s TWOPOINTFIVE, and is currently at work on a handful of as-yet-unannounced high profile albums. A self-described “world-builder,” Lido’s signature isn’t a particular sound palette so much as it is a noncompliance with conventional creative trappings, the enduring patience required to build new worlds, and the instincts to imbue every project with a sense of pleasure. In his own words: “The only music that really goes off is music that sounds like it was fun to make.”
