Lido Pours His Heart Out On Bright, Beautiful New 'I O U 2' EP

Lido I O U 2

Lido seems to always have something incredible up his sleeve. Having just come off his recent I O U 1 EP, today the Norwegian phenom has already completed the series with I O U 2.

This latest offering shares a side of Lido we’ve never seen before. While we had thought the multi-talented artist laid it all on the line in his 2016 album Everything, it seems that something was missing - and that something was Nothing.

And we mean this quite literally, as with Lido’s recently completed visual album viewings, we learned not only the meaning behind I O U (“Inspiration Over Utility”) and that Lido is already working on his next album; but that while I O U came in the form of two EP’s, the project was originally slated to be released as Nothing, the follow up to Everything. But while Lido has been vocal that Everything was “not about her, this [album] is because of her” (“her” being his ex-girlfriend Halsey) it seems that I O U 2 is more reflective not of Lido’s heartbreak, but a much more external view of the situations that arose and his relationships with the people around him after the extent his emotional turmoil.

Weighing in at 5-tracks, I O U 2 continues upon the lush, distinctive sound carved out in its predecessor. From the angry, fast-paced release on “Ex” to the soft, melancholic fatigue on “Vultures”, Lido continues to pour his heart out over vibrant synths, skittering, non-traditional percussion and powerful choral harmonies. Stream I O U 2 below and enjoy!

PREMIERE | Kill Paris Delivers Lush New Remix Of Alison Wonderland's "Easy"

alison wonderland kill paris

Alison Wonderland and Kill Paris are two artists that we highly admire here at TSIS. So, when we were offered the opportunity to premiere a Kill Paris remix of Alison Wonderland’s album cut “Easy”, we enthusiastically accepted.

Sydney-born Alison Wonderland was featured on the site just last week after her anticipated collab with Dillon Francis was heard for the first time at EDC Orlando. On the other hand, Indiana native Kill Paris made a recent appearance with his single “Two Minds”, which was created using various samples from… plants? Yup, definitely worth checking out. Now today, we are blessed with the sounds of both artists as Alison Wonderland recruits Kill Paris for an installment of the ‘Awake’ album remixes. 

Revolving around Alison Wonderland’s vocals, Kill Paris nicely maintains the integrity of the original sound while giving the track a high-energy, future-bass, facelift that we can't get enough of. Kill Paris always seems to impress with his knack for lush production and perfectly highlights Alison's original while making it his own. Enjoy!

Yes Lawd! Anderson .Paak’s highly anticipated new album Oxnard is here! This has been one of our most anticipated albums for the past couple years and was worth the wait. The 14-track album was executive produced by Dr. Dre and includes features from artists like Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, Pusha T, Snoop Dogg, Q-Tip, BJ The Chicago Kid & more.

We previously heard singles like “Tints” alongside Kendrick Lamar and “Who R U?” and the full album showcases Anderson .Paak’s diverse sound in the best way. Some songs are soulful, others are hard hitting as .Paak remains smooth whether he’s singing, rapping or doing a bit of both. Enjoy!
