Upstart Norwegian chameleon Lido featured heavily on his friend Cashmere Cat’s irresistible recent Wedding Bells EP, and some of the same heat-shimmering organic bounce can be heard on ‘Money’, the first brash taste of his own forthcoming I Love You EP, due out on June 9th on Pelican Fly Records.

There’s an aggressive edge to this though, that sees Lido aim more squarely for the dancefloor than his feline friend. Chopped vocals and grandiose synth cliffs channel Justice’s widescreen house tendencies, whilst the sparkling chimes and bursts of colour have the hip-hop swagger of Hudson Mohawke. Its bright confidence is undeniable.
