Great artistry has the ability to adapt to its environment while never sacrificing an authentic creative vision. Nothing more true can be said of producer, singer, songwriter, Peder Losnegård, a.k.a Lido. Over the last five years, the multi-instrumentalist and virtuoso has fearlessly carved out his own creative stamp across multiple genres within the musical landscape. He’s produced and remixed some of the most innovative music of the last decade with some critically acclaimed chart-topping heavyweights including, Chance The Rapper, Ella Mai, Banks, Alt-J, Bastille, Halsey and Disclosure to name a few. His solo releases include 2016’s critically praised album, ‘Everything,’ as well as his now infamous 8-minute re-imagining of Kanye West’s ‘Life of Pablo,’ appropriately titled ‘Life of Peder.’ In recent years, Lido produced tracks for Chicago rapper Towkio including his breakout single “Symphony,” which the two performed last February on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Followed by the release of the EP ‘Spacesuit’ with buzzing Seattle rapper J’von. He followed up ‘Life of Peder’ with the highly acclaimed 7-minute project ‘kidsloveghosts,” a re-imagining of Kanye West and Kid Cudi’s latest collaboration ‘Kids See Ghosts,’ hailed by Dancing Astronaut as “stunning” and “masterful.” Entirely self-taught, Lido quickly became a piano prodigy while also excelling on the drums. He got to grips with production at the age of ten which allowed him to develop his own unique production style from an early age. It was through a series of remixes that Lido eventually catapulted into the sets of the most high-profile DJ’s around the globe, capturing the ears of numerous notable tastemakers. Reworking acts like Portugal. The Man and Bill Withers, Lido became an internet sensation, eventually getting signed to record label Pelican Fly/Because Music. Debuting on the label with 2014’s ‘I Love You’ EP, followed by the ‘Superspeed’ EP, and remixes of Banks, Alt-J and MØ, Lido’s anti-formulaic style emerged.
2019 has already seen production releases from Lido including “Get A Bag” on Chance The Rappers debut album along with opening up Jaden Smith’s album “SYRE” in a 4 part song featuring Lido on the last track. His compositions bounce from one idea to another voraciously, but always with that clear Lido stamp. You don’t just get a drum and a bassline; you’re more likely to get an entire string or brass section that elevates the sound to cinematic heights. Lido’s sophomore album is set to release in early 2020, which encapsulates everything he ever was and has become up to this point in his career. Developing a new genre yet again, Lido’s Galactic R&B toys with a new breed of genre equality that infuses new sounds and garners reactions never before felt.
When Moon Boots hits the booth, he’s got one mission: to give you the best night of your life. Whether playing at iconic clubs like Chicago’s Smart Bar — where he cut his teeth watching legends like Frankie Knuckles and Derrick Carter — or the world’s biggest festival stages, he gives people a release they’ll remember long after the party’s over. Born in Brooklyn, Moon Boots’ (birth name: Pete Dougherty) musical obsession started not long after he could walk. His early love of piano lead to a passion for keyboards and synthesizers. Teenage nights lost in the work of Daft Punk, A Tribe Called Quest and Herbie Hancock followed. Then came college years at Princeton University, where he shelved an Engineering degree to dive into the musical abyss.
Knowing what he was meant to do, he moved to the house music epicenter of Chicago, where he tirelessly passed out demos to local DJs and scoured the web for like-minded people with whom he could share and expand on his sound. He played in a synth-pop trio whose demo caught the attention of Lupe Fiasco, and after a stint touring alongside the hip-hop icon, Dougherty went back to DJing with a renewed focus.
The stars aligned when he had a chance encounter with Perseus, founder of an adventurous new label, French Express. A fellow junkie and fan of French House and R&B-infused dance music, Perseus became a friend and mentor, the Splinter to Boots' Donatello. The label eventually disbanded but Boots has stayed true to his mission of making dance tracks that can’t be confined to one style. Pete blends the music he loves -- jazz, house, funk and soul -- into songs that last longer than their runtime. Songs not just for DJs, but for everyone.After moving back to Brooklyn, Dougherty was introduced to the beloved Anjunadeep crew. His relationship with the label and their artists has flourished, leading to his debut album First Landing (out August 4th.) It’s an album where cavernous club music meshes with classical melodies, warm harmonies, and bright and beloved melodic soundscapes riddled with soul.

His live is melodious, fabulous, and interesting. The layout of the scene, whether the lighting or stage design, is humanized. Li Jian’s clear voice, friendly temperament, his smile while signing and the talking after songs, feels like the interaction between good old friends.The inspiration for "Keep On Li Jian" inspired by an interview entitled "Li Jian, that is, Li Jian". Li Jian believes that the meaning of the concert should be present a rare aspect of the singer from the arrangement of the songs, the performance of the pieces, and more vividly communication with the audience.With “Keep On Li Jian”, Li Jian especially looks forward to this fresh and unique perspective to recreate the unexpected music world.
