Lido, aka Peder Losnegård, is 23 years old and hyperactive. This composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and drummer since the age of two made a name for himself by posting remixes on SoundCloud (Justin Timberlake, AlunaGeorge, Alt-J, Flight Facilities, Zhu, Mø, Para One and Bill Withers among others).
Some of them have become classics – Lido has notably remixed ‘Often’ by The Weeknd and ‘Latch’ by Disclosure which he did without permission and created a tsunami in the world of EDM, making him known to Skrillex and Diplo who have been singing the Norwegian artist’s praises ever since.
His latest release to date, ‘The Life of Peder’, a tribute to Kanye Westand his album The Life of Pablo, made an incredible amount of noise. Relayed in less than 24 hours across the planet, Lido’s version of the album which he made available for free streaming on his website, was listened to 500 000 times in one day.
A multitalented artist, musician, producer (for Alt-J, Banks, Chance the Rappers, Cashmere Cat or Halsey), he released his first lauded EP in 2014, I Love You, and did a victory lap with two sold-out American tours.
Lido developed his love of the stage very early on, playing in the church orchestra where his father was a pastor. His early experiences made him hungry for experiments, performing in unexpected conditions, as with the Norwegian KORK Orchestra .
