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.”
