Petit Biscuit (pә.ti bis.kɥi) is a 17 year old electronic music producer from France, keen to
take on the world. After picking up the cello at age 5 and entering French classical music
school the Conservatoire soon after, things heated up when Petit Biscuit got his first PC at 11.
Editing and mixing all the sounds of his tracks himself, he excels in creating unmistakable
chopped and twisted vocal leads. His first tracks got him an impressive following on
SoundCloud and YouTube early on. Now with the release of his debut EP in May 2016, the
delicate music of the young prodigy has started to spread like wildfire. The song "Sunset
Lover", heady and recognizable among thousands, acts as its spearhead.
Mehdi, as he's known by his friends, draws from both his "real" instruments and the unusual
and autonomous digital sounds he creates. On stage, Petit Biscuit plays as many realtime
parts as he can, while carried away by the machines he programs. The stunning live show
combines analog and electronic, interplaying sounds, videos and lights. Petit Biscuit takes
his public with him into a vibrant odyssey, and plunges it into an atmosphere that feels both
familiar and exotic. In 2016, he performed at the biggest French festivals ( Les Vieilles
Charrues, Solidays, Garorock, etc. ) and in Europe ( Dour Festival in Belgium), as well as in
the renowned ElyséeMontmartre
in Paris, selling out its 1,350 capacity quickly. Every live
show he has played thus far has sold out, including forthcoming dates this April in the U.S.
Since its release, “Sunset Lover” has been streamed more than 135 million times on Spotify
alone and Petit Biscuit’ s profile gets up to 1 million streams per day. His music has been
viewed more than 54 million times on YouTube, and the biggest French commercial radio
stations have him at the top of their playlists. His chart success speaks for itself: #3 on the
iTunes main chart, #4 on Spotify, #5 on Shazam and #9 on Deezer.
Abroad, the track can be heard on Beats1 (Apple Music), BBC1 (UK), Energy & Radio Fritz
(Germany), TripleJ (Australia), NRJ & PureFM (Belgium), Couleur3 (Switzerland), P3
(Sweden) and many more. His music can be found in the Spotify top 100 of up to 25
