PREVIEW: Focus Fridays with Lido (Live!) at The Hoxton 06-11-15


For those of us unable to see him during his tour and or festival dates, Embrace x collectively has our backs once again by inviting Lido (Live!) at The Hoxton on November 6th, 2015. This is a another prayer answered for audiophiles all over the GTA.

Every one of his releases has gotten rave reviews and has amassed him millions of Soundcloud plays in total. His take on every song he’s involved with is so fresh and filled to the brim with emotion and dramatic effects.


This will be his first time headlining a show Toronto as Lido, but there are some lucky ducks who saw him as Trippy Turtle last fall and those are fortunate enough to see these two sides of him. His performances as Lido have been nothing short of spectacular, from what I’ve seen online.

All of the influences and experiences that he has incorporated into his sound have blended together so naturally. The last few years have been quite productive for this Norwegian producer, and it has all been well received.


One of my favourite tunes by Lido is his remix of The Weeknd’s Often because there is a whole different aspect of drama that was injected into the track. There’s also this sense of tension that builds so elegantly and breaks perfectly all throughout the song. Checkout his latest EP with Canblaster called Superspeed” if you want to get a better sense of what I mean.

This is going to be one of those shows that anyone will be able to fall in love with and look back at fondly. Lido has a diverse edge to him, so you never know if he’s got your favourite song remixed in his collection somewhere. It’s the energy and special guests that Lido will be bringing to the table that I think will set this show apart from others. Tickets also happen to be really cheap, so your wallet can love you back while you take in some of the finest tunes of the year.

Tickets are available on  TicketWeb   for $15+ fees right now.
