Lido’s SF Debut at Rickshaw Stop, 3/12 [Event Review]


Lost (feat. Muri)

Over the last couple years, Lido‘s diverse compositions have played an important role in defining “Future” music, a broad term used to categorize the post-EDM wave of electronic artists. The young Norwegian producer’s sound defies definition by spanning from unconventionally jaw-dropping remixes to soulful, downtempo originals and everything in between. Lido’s versatile inspiration and talent makes for an eclectic live performance, which we were lucky enough to witness at his first ever San Francisco appearance at Rickshaw Stop last week.

Clad with keyboard, microphone, beat pad and electronic drum set, Lido’s stage set up features enough instruments, including his voice, for a full band allowing him to put on a performance that transcends categorization. Original tracks like “Money” and “I Love You” transformed beautifully live, but it was truly the unexpected turns that made the night. At one point, Lido broke down into straight gospel from his childhood–it was a moment when fans seemed to look around with a bit of confusion before being drawn in to its soulfulness. With such a broad range of styles, the transitions may have actually been the single most impressive aspect of the set. When Lido dropped his throwback original  ”She Cried Ice,” which few realize is the piano sampled in Cashmere Cat‘s “With Me,” and merged it with “Lost,” the crowd completely lost it. The reactions aren’t what you normally think of at an electronic show given the emotional depth, which fostered an atmosphere of awe and positivity all the way up to his triumphant closing remix of Kanye West‘s “FourFiveSeconds.”

[Deep House] Justin Jay – Momentum EP


Fans of deep house should turn their attention to the almost college graduate, Justin Jay. The LA-based producer has been one of the quickest rising stars in the deep and tech house spheres with a solidified spot on Dirtybird’s premiere roster. With multiple EPs and appearances at Holy Ship! as well as HARD Summer to his repertoire, fans of Jay have been anxiously awaiting his next EP, and now they can be at ease as he has finally released his fourth EP, Momentum, on Pets Recordings.

The EP is broken up into three tracks – “How I Knew,” “Momentum, and “You Give Me Butterflies.” Justin Jay teamed up on the title track with fellow label stay, Kill Frenzy, to produce a sinister hybrid cut that blurs the line between tech and deep house, but regardless of its label, the track is built for the early morning raver type. The young maestro released “You Give Me Butterflies” just a short while ago to surprise fans with a light-hearted track full of feel-good vibes and beach-ready melodies. For “How I Knew,” the Dirtybird talent flexes his production muscles as he jumps into his comfort zone to combine funky vocal chops, unforgiving bass tremors, and trickling accents. All in all, Justin Jay shows us the many sides to his abilities in the studio and only sets himself up for success with college graduation in the coming months. Grab the EP here on Beatport.

[Sunny] Joman – Paddy’s Theme (Ultimate Edition)

Paddy's Theme: Ultimate Edition

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, ninjas! In honor of this legendary drinking holiday, we’re paying tribute by highlighting one of our favorite fictional pubs, Paddy’s.

If you’re new to the site, you probably don’t remember when Denver-based producer/DJ Joman did an absolutely mind-blowing remix of “Day Man.” The song and accompanying video went viral, getting approving nods from everyone who heard it, including the cast. It’s been a few years since that came and went, but Joman is back again with another remix and video, and it’s just as good as the first.

Taking a crack at the “Paddy’s Theme”, this producer has once again impressed us and furthered our admiration for IASIP. Starting off with a firm grip on nostalgia experienced from 80′s TV sitcom intro songs, this remix walks in with the original score remembered from Charlie’s tune. From there, we’re welcomed into some rolling cymbal hits that bring in the iconic Joman electro house sounds we’ve become accustomed to. From there on, it’s an epic journey complete with ample samples from the cast and a heavy dubstep breakdown.

Raise a glass of green beer, press play on either the track or the video, and take a minute to salute all the glory that is IASIP. And cheers to Joman for putting something like this together once again.

[Multi-Genre] SLDGHMR – Grid Living EP


Grid Living is the latest EP from the Los Angeles meets Miami duo SLDGHMR. Their eclectic tastes come out in a big way with six originals, along with two remixes. Included in the originals are collaborations, one with Crywolf and one with Chuck Inglish and K.Flay. SLDGHMR show off their innovation throughout, especially with tracks like “Rocket Fuel” and “Saccharine.” Even with their more traditional sounds, they still manage to keep things interesting and meritable, without a doubt. If we were to pick personal favorites, I’d have to roll with “Lombardy” because of its dark, yet energizing sound. It’s a little trashy, and we love it. The whole EP deserves two thumbs up, and if you feel the same, then you can go ahead and purchase the project for yourself, or gift it to a friend.

[Hybrid Trap] Mark Instinct & LUMBERJVCK – The Block ft. Strap Deez

Mark Instinct & LUMBERJVCK
The Block ft. Strap Deez

Los Angeles producer LUMBERJVCK makes his way back to Kannibalen Records, this time with Mark Instinct and Strap Deez. The two producers join up for a booming hybrid instrumental called “The Block,” which gets murdered by raps from The Block Society owner, Strap Deez. With all three together, the final product is a straight up beast that is likely to end up attacking the upcoming events in SXSW and Miami. LUMBERJVCK and Mark Instinct are some of the most distinct bass producers in the game, and their coming together shows just what they can do playing off another’s talents. Get yourself a copy of “The Block” here.

[Deep House] Kanye West – All Day (BYNON & Reid Stefan Remix) [TMN Premiere]

Kanye West
All Day (BYNON & Reid Stefan Remix)

Montreal based producer BYNON is releasing another tune, just after releasing a successful collaboration with Dannic on Revealed Recordings. BYNON teams up with Reid Stefan to flip “All Day” from Kanye West into a deep house treasure. Fitting with the Las Vegas residency, this lively deep take is perfect for the club atmosphere. With this style, it’s easy for producer’s to put out tracks that lack identity, but these two producers came together to create something that can stick out within the sub-genre. Prepare yourself for vicious grooves and morphed Kanye vocal chops that are newly used as an instrument in this composition. You’re getting a first listen to BYNON meets Reid Stefan, as the ninjas are premiering this free download to you right here, right now.

Sunday Night Soul (On A Monday) [Vol. 44]

Sunday Night Soul

Before we begin, we want to start off by saying that we know it’s not Sunday, so first and foremost we’d like to apologize for the delay with this week’s edition of the playlist. We won’t get into the details of why we’re publishing it a day late, but once you see the songs we’ve assembled for you we’re certain you’ll forgive us. Though we don’t have a full count yet (our SoundCloud playlist should reveal those numbers for us), judging from the eyeball test we’d like to think this is one of our most expansive collections yet. Because of that, we’re not going to run through the highlights like usual. Instead, we’ll let you pick your favorites yourself. Think of it as a little extra incentive to make it to the bottom of the list.

Sunday Night Soul should be back on its regularly scheduled day next week. In the meantime, make sure to follow us on SoundCloud where you can find each playlist after it’s published.
