Lido has successfully planted himself as one of the tastemakers in the crowded Future Bass world and has been keeping us anxiously waiting for his next move.
Today, out of nowhere, Lido has shared the announcement of a brand new project titled Passion Project, which is an EP set to come out through Mad Decent and Pelican Fly. What's interesting is that it's a collaborative project with a singer we've never heard of before called Santell. The unknown artist offers little information about himself, all he offers on his twitter is that he's "the light skinned Tyrese." After hearing his unbelievable vocals, we might have to agree with that statement.
This first song "Ashley" is nothing short of incredible with signature production and the smooth, lustful vocals from the intriguing new singer. Listen below and we will keep you updated as more rolls in on this project. Enjoy!

One of our favorite new artists to follow has been the blooming 19 year old Swedish Producer Kasbo, who’s been making noise all year through a series of remixes (Like Vance Joy) and originals (like Again and Kaliedoscope). He's also been supported by Skrillex, Porter Robinson, ODESZA amongs many more reputable names.
The young producer's been attracting interest from labels but said f*ck the system and decided to release his debut EP indepently, and even better as a free download. The Umbrella Club EP is a 5 track release that captures the various styles and sounds that define Kasbo's signature sound.
"There's Something About U" is one of the most exciting tracks as it takes the listner on quite a journey full of live bass plucks and bright melodies. "Fuck Love" is a simple yet effective ballad that uses trap elements in the chillest possible manner. "The Tension" closes out the release with some amazing vocal work and unbelieavble climaxes. Ranging from dance-floor ready tracks to incredibly relaxing soundscapes, this EP shows off Kasbo’s uncanny versatility as a producer as this 5 track journey is both calming and enthusiastic.
Kasbo is set to play his first run of shows ever supporting ODESZA on the first leg of their North American and he will also be making an appearance at HARD Day of the Dead festival in LA on Halloween for a highly anticipated festival debut. Enjoy!

LA producer duo Vindata seemingly can do no wrong, they bless us with audio pleasures on each and every release such as their incredible remixes of Ellie Goulding's "Beating Heart", A-Trak and Milo & Otis' "Out The Speakers" among more. Vindata have been teasing their Through Time and Space EP over the past few weeks with singles “Getting Away” and "Wide Awake" and now you can hear the project in full.
This 6-track EP is brought to us via OWSLA and showcases the duo’s eclectic sound, combining pleasant melodies with heavy build-ups and drops, futuristic synths, vocal chopping, and even some jungle flavor alongside some catchy vocals. They kick it off strong with “Spirals” and transition smoothly through each song with strong R&B collaborations on each song. They bring an expansive and cohesive project packed with different vibes utilizing the vocal talents of Anderson Paak, Kaleena Zanders, Mack, Kenzie May and Chuck Inglish.
