Norwegian producer, singer, songwriter, and artist Peder Losnegård, more popularly known by the moniker Lido, has established himself as one of the most-sought and innovative producers of the last half-decade. 

The multi-instrumentalist and producing virtuoso has lent his talents to such heavyweights as Chance The Rapper, Jaden Smith, Banks, Atl-J, Halsey and Disclosure over the years. And that’s only scratching the surface of his prolific body of work. Within his own personal musical endeavors, Lido is an artist constantly pushing the envelope in a range of genres. From Kanye West album edits, 2015’s R&B-fueled The Passion Project, to his latest experimental electronic work “Corner Love,” Lido can seemingly do it all.

An artist unrestricted by typical musical conventions, it is impossible to say what exactly the future holds for Lido, beyond the fact that it will be glorious. So, we decided to flip the table and gain insight into some of the artists whose future Lido is most excited about. These are some of Lido’s favorite up-and-coming artists and thusly a shortlist of our dream collaborations waiting to happen.  


Col3trane

He is an incredible singer from the UK. I am lucky to work with him quite a bit, and we have some crazy music coming. His album BOOT is amazing.


Gabriel Garzón-Montana  

He is an actual genius. I don’t understand how everyone doesn’t know who he is yet. His latest album is one of the most inspiring things I’ve heard in forever.


J’von

He is a great lyricist and artist from Seattle. One of my favorite rappers and best friends. Also gifted visual artist. Blessed guy.


Lolo Zouaï  

I saw her live recently in LA, and she made me a fan. She has an amazing voice and is a really tasteful songwriter. Also, the combination of English and French is [fire-emoji].
