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…

THE WEEKND – OFTEN [KYGO REMIX]

The Weeknd dropped a new, downright naughty track entitled ‘Often‘ recently.  A month later, he enlists the help of 22 year old Norwegian producer Kygo to give it the remix treatment, who gives the track that little bit more body whilst keeping Tesfaye’s tender, trembling vocals largely intact.  Stream below via SoundCloud.

THE WEEKND – LOVE IN THE SKY

The Weeknd releases ‘Love In The Sky’ ahead of the release of ‘Kissland’ on September 10.  The track is nothing short of epic, and features Tesfaye’s delicate vocals over a thoroughly eighties-inspired, but deeply textured production sound.  Stream the track below via SoundCloud, or click here to watch the short video for the track’s final…
