The official video for “Waterfall” from rising French star Petit Biscuit is premiering worldwide today.
“Waterfall,” which has been streamed more than nine million times to date, is the lead single from Petit Biscuit’s debut album Presence.
The new music continues to receive widespread critical acclaim:
“It’s a 14-track collection of smooth, chilled out house perfect for falling in love
or nursing introspective moments into brilliance. It’s emotive and cinematically
intimate, warmed to the bones with soft string melodies and cozy atmospheres…
Expect to see big things from this name in the years to come.”—Billboard
“The universe may be endless but the atmospheric hues and tones of Petit
Biscuit’s meandrous music is a genial companion for however far your
exploration goes.”—Associated Press
“The French artist makes his debut with this spectacular full-length album
that feels like it was born on the dance floor.”—MTV
“Petit Biscuit’s strength lies in his future which at this point seems limitless.”—YourEDM
“We’ve been patiently waiting for break-out French artist Petit Biscuit’s
debut album for a while now, and we look forward to it dropping in
November for his 18th birthday.”—KCRW
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.
Presence is Petit Biscuit’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.
The new album 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.
In addition to the U.S. tour stops set for this winter, Petit Biscuit will continue to celebrate Presence with new 2018 dates in London, Amsterdam and his hometown of Rouen. See below for details.
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.
