Are we about to see a resurgence in swing beats and funky 80’s hip hop? I bloody hope so! 24-year-old Norwegian producer, Peder Losnegård, AKA Lido, has just served up one of the catchiest tracks of the Summer.
Teaming up with LA-based R&B duo, THEY., ‘Not Enough’ serves up a delightful 80’s inspired throwback. Influenced by artists such as Guy, New Edition and Bobby Brown, ‘Not Enough’ revisits the new jack swing era, originally brought to prominence in the 80’s by Teddy Riley (Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown) and Bernard Belle (Whitney Houston). There’s such a feel-good vibe to this track, with its funky rhythms, soulful riffing and ridiculously catchy melody that just makes you want to get up and dance with its New Kid On The Block-esque style beats.
Having shared his latest album Everything back in October, Lido has previously worked with the likes of Halsey, Banks and Chance the Rapper, while THEY recently unveiled their debut album NÜ RELIGION: HYENA, featuring singles ‘Truth Be Told’ and ‘U-RITE’. Upcoming dates for Lido include Osheaga Music & Arts Festival in Canada (Aug 4-6) while THEY. are set to perform at Reading & Leeds (Aug 25-27)
