A year and a half after the very successful release of Petit Biscuit, his first
EP, the wunderkind of French electro is back with his debut album Presence.
Across all 14 tracks, the LP combines ambient, techno, and house, with tailored
arrangements, both classical and modern. A personal and creative opus
stretched over intricate rhythmic patterns that transforms the 2015 rookie into a
distinguished artist.
Mehdi is back from a whirlwind experience following the triumph of his hit
song "Sunset Lover" (over 500 million streams and counting), now stepping up
to the plate with renewed enthusiasm. Performing his last EP around the world,
with sold-out dates in the US and Europe, has taught the precocious 18-year-old
a great deal, helping him grow up as an artist, and figure out where he wants his
career to take him. With Presence, Petit Biscuit puts forward energetic and
vivacious tracks, in a cohesive series of musical fire starters. The album ignites
and inspires ceaselessly, expertly conducted by the wise-beyond-his-years
teenager. Petit Biscuit is an author, a composer, a singer and a producer,
alongside leading his own label, Petit Biscuit Music, and remaining an
independent act throughout.
At the crossroads of his acoustic obsessions (he studied the cello for 13
years) and his electronic desires, Petit Biscuit merges styles and genres without
limiting himself, and boldly delivers a stellar and unique homebrew of sounds.
Like when he meshes together guitar strings, MIDI keyboards and his signature
vocal chops, or when his careful work on rhythmic breaks shines through.


Beyond his talent at producing, his composing skills are put to good use,
creating a dazzling variety of atmospheres, each track exploding with freshness
and power. Decidedly Baroque because of its mix of influences, Presence is
nevertheless extremely coherent, steering us with confidence and bravado
through trap and pop verses, heavenly vocals and untamed techno, teaming up
together for a one-of-a-kind journey. As the first single from the new album,
"Waterfall,” brilliantly proves, Petit Biscuit’s technical mastery and esthetical flair
sets him apart from the vast pool of electronic music producers.
One eye on his cello, the other on the screen of his DAW, the young artist
from Rouen remixes his musical tastes with the aid of modern plug-ins.
Ever-eclectic, he mentions Nils Frahm, Phoenix or Tame Impala as sources of
inspiration, and collaborates with artists like Lido, Panama or Bipolar Sunshine,
all the while refining his productions and sketching out the future of electronic
music. Armed with his array of machines, Petit Biscuit is crafting the sound of
tomorrow, a wild blend of digital and analog, of live and pre-recorded samples,
of techno, pop and hip-hop. Defying all categorizations, Petit Biscuit is about to
defend his new tracks on stage this November, with a run of Zenith (7000
capacity) tour dates in France, then European capitals, before storming up North
America in December. Bringing us all great music for both the mind and heart.

Artist Details

Petit Biscuit

The young French producer Petit Biscuit put "Sunset Lover" on SoundCloud in the summer of 2015, when he was still just 15 years old. The single is a lolling master-class, the logical conclusion of mainstream electronic music's turn away from aggressive, hard-charging tracks in recent years. Petit Biscuit boiled his tune down to just a few elements: a guitar line, mostly single notes with space between each one; a hand-clap; a basic kick drum; a pitch-shifted-and-chopped vocal that sounds like a baby...
