THE PROVINCE PLAYLIST – FEBRUARY 2015

As another month passes and winter draws to a close, the next installment of our monthly SoundCloud playlist is here. With albums from Big Sean and Ghostpoet this February, you’ll also find tracks from the likes of Lido, Haich, Alex Wiley and Earl Sweatshirt. Fill your boots.

LIDO X BRASSTRACKS – FOURFIVESECONDS

The very notion of a collaboration between Paul McCartney, Kanye West and Rihanna had us moist with anticipation, but we didn’t feature ‘FourFiveSeconds’ because actually, it was terrible. Really terrible. However, in amongst the utter dross that exists between those three to four minutes [and thankfully not a second longer] is that unbelievably catchy line…

THE PROVINCE PLAYLIST – OCTOBER 2014

October has been a big month: BadBadNotGood and Ghostface Killah announced a collaborative album with new track ‘Gunshowers‘, Mac Miller signed to Warner and released a new track, and Flatbush Zombies & Underachievers united as ‘Clockwork Indigo‘.  Not only that, but we’ve seen new projects drop from the likes of Black Milk, Childish Gambino, Run The Jewels, Baauer and Vince…

ALT-J – LEFT HAND FREE [LIDO REMIX]

If the news that exceptional Norwegian producer Lido has remixed Alt-J’s single ‘Left Hand Free’ doesn’t brighten up your midweek, you’re probably in the wrong place.  Taken from their recent album ‘This Is All Yours’, the track has a kind of laid-back country vibe, emphasised by a music video in which everyone just has a great…

THE WEEKND – OFTEN [LIDO REMIX]

It hasn’t been long since Lido released his debut EP ‘I Love You‘, followed by the epic visuals for single ‘Money‘.  Now he follows fellow Norwegian Kygo‘s example, giving The Weeknd’s ‘Often‘ the remix treatment.  Leaving Tesfaye’s trembling vocal pretty much intact, Lido adds the kind of sounds you might find on a House track or some…

LIDO – MONEY [VIDEO]

We absolutely loved Lido’s ‘Money‘, which was released back in May, and couldn’t be more pleased that it’s now been graced with the visual treatment.  Taken from the Norwegian producer’s ‘I Love You EP’, the bouncing, staccato synths get a visual accompaniment in the form of numerous skulls, dollar bills, statues and coins, which all jump, explode…

LIDO – I LOVE YOU EP

Norwegian producer Lido unveils his debut EP ‘I Love You’ today, which is as unabashed as its title.  The first two tracks ‘I Love You’ parts 1 & 2 are filled with the sort of optimistic flourishes that make Daft Punk’s music so infectious, and track three, ‘Money‘, is an absolute winner as far as we’re concerned.  Stream…

BANKS – DROWNING [LIDO REMIX]

With her upcoming album ‘Goddess’ due for release September 9, Banks hands over latest single ‘Drowning‘ to Lido for the remix treatment.  The Norwegian producer pairs Banks’ soaring vocal with the appropriate synths, whose version builds to an intricate yet hard-hitting climax.  Stream below via SoundCloud, or click here for the DL.

LIDO – MONEY

Lido released the first track from his upcoming debut EP ‘I Love You’ [June 9] this week.  As is Lido’s style, ‘Money’ link together staccato synth bursts and Trappy drums to create something that is far smoother-sounding than it should be.  This, and his recent ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ remix, have got us very excited for the upcoming…

DISCLOSURE – LATCH [LIDO REMIX]

As far as remixes are concerned, Disclosure’s ‘Latch’ is the gift that just keeps on giving.  First there was DJ Premier’s version, a stunning R&B refix, and now Norwegian producer Lido has lent his soft, electronic touch to the track.  Despite growing and swelling in fits and starts, the track remains silky smooth throughout, and with…
