Lido remixes Kanye West’s ‘The Life of Pablo’
Lido is one of the most ambitious and diverse producers in electronic music today. Hailing from Norway — unless, of course, he’s actually an aquatic reptile from New Jersey — he has put out an impressive mix of unique originals and reproductions for a wide array of other artists.
Lido’s most recent release showcases a rare combination of fearlessness combined with technical and musical aptitude coming together to create something truly uncommon. The artist has released “The Life of Peder” — he was born Peder Losnegård — where he combines a selection of tracks from Kanye West‘s album, The Life of Pablo with his own eccentric production. Kicking off with a layered choir paying homage to Metro Boomin, the nearly 9-minute track weaves Kanye’s disparate album through an equally divergent range of sounds and moods. It runs the gamut from Lido’s signature style, filled with bursts of gargantuan synths punctuated by rabid drums, to more experimental elements, an electro-funk section, and even subdued, reflective moments. Notably, Lido doesn’t get to “Wolves,” produced by his good friend and fellow Norwegian, Cashmere Cat.
Enticingly, however, when downloaded, the track title reveals that this is just “Part One” of Lido’s rearrangement. Before more is released, you can stream the first part below.
