“Petit Biscuit is gaining traction as one of France's premiere breakout producers” —iHeart Radio

“A modern, infectious, and by all means talented artist,  Benjelloun is anything but an ordinary teen.” —

Presence, the debut album from rising French star Petit Biscuit, is out today, his 18th birthday—stream and download here. Petit Biscuit also shared “Problems,” his collaboration with Lido, this week—listen here.

Recorded over the course of the past year, Petit Biscuit—a.k.a. Mehdi Benjelloun—wrote, produced and mixed Presence completely independently, finding time between high school exams and sold out tours across the U.S., Europe and beyond.

The album is Petit Biscut’s complete creative vision, and includes contributions from Bipolar Sunshine and Panama in addition to Lido. The album was mastered by legendary engineer Chab (Daft Punk, Air, Sebastien Tellier) in a nod to the forefathers of French dance music. Debut single “Waterfall” has been streamed more than 9 million times to date, listen here.

Presence is the first body of work from Petit Biscuit (\pə.ti bis.kɥi\) since the release of his debut EP featuring smash hit “Sunset Lover,” released in 2015 when he was only 15 and streamed more than 400 million times to date.

Following two completely sold out North American tours this year, Petit Biscuit will return to the U.S. for select dates this winter, with stops in Seattle, Boston and Chicago. More dates are to be announced ASAP.

A classically trained musician from a young age, Petit Biscuit plays piano, guitar, cello and more, and began experimenting with electronics to form his signature sound at age 11. Presence is heavily informed by his schooling, combining acoustic elements with innovative electronic production and his trademark vocal manipulations.
