A the son of a gospel choir director, Norwegian artist and multi-instrumentalist Lido has been using his classical training on the drums and piano since the age of 16. After launching his rap career at the same age, he took a turn towards indietronica production and remixing mellow hip-hop takes on Justin Timberlake and The Weeknd. He’s produced records for Chance The Rapper and Halsey, in addition to a slew of his own albums, EPs, and mixtapes.

Arriving as his fifth extended play project, Lido’s I O U 1 is a 5-track journey into the emotional side of R&B mixed with the experimental sound designs of IDM. From the radio-ready appeal of “Outstanding” to the layered vocals of the Unge Ferrari-assisted “Corner Love,” Lido’s newest EP is the perfect encapsulation of his signature experimental flair.

Catch Lido as he opens up for ZHU‘s Dune Tour at Red Rocks on October 26.
