So you think the days of R&b are dead? Meet Lido & Santell aka The light skinned Tyrese and their latest EP, aptly titled “Passion Project”. This EP comes from a collaboration between Lido, known in recent years for making electronic music, and Santell, whose SoundCloud page currently features just three songs. The two combined forces for a short EP that is breathe of fresh air for any R&B enthusiast, for any music enthusiast, for anyone looking to discover new music.
Last year, Lido met Santell during a writing session for, Mad Decent artist LIZ. “I heard his voice,” Lido remembers, “and I was like, ‘wow, that is something different. That signature in his voice is something way different — I need to work with this guy.” Never be afraid of collaborating with new artists, the result could be gems like this.
