Florian Picasso burst onto the radar of fans and industry members alike with his hit “Origami” last year, which was chosen as track of the year by DJ Mag France. His blend of progressive house infused with energetic, electro-tinged drops is dynamic enough to fit both the club and festival circuit, making Florian a rising star in the EDM scene. Today’s music is always evolving, and Florian is at the forefront of developing a fresh sound for the modern era of the progressive house genre. The vocal rendition of “Origami“, entitled “Want it Back“, was another hit, having reached 2.5 million plays on Spotify. Protocol‘s support of Florian was personified when he mixed the Protocol presents Miami 2016 compilation in March with fellow member Blinders. Watch their new music video here.
Florian Picasso, the great grandson of the world famous artist Pablo Picasso, enabled listeners to relive such magical experiences on “Final Call”, his third single released on house mega-label Protocol Recordings on May the 13th. Featuring emotive lyrics over a lively melody, “Final Call” came to its pinnacle with an electro-influenced drop that elevates it from sing-a-long status to club-friendly tune, just in time for the height of festival season. Following up the success of the audio release, we are stoked to present you a video for “Final Call“. The animated masterpiece has been produced by Fauns / Clubbing Vision crew that has Festival de Cannes nominations under their belt and have also worked on projects for Mad Max – the movie. They’ve also produced a lot of content for Canal+ (one of the world’s leading TV networks). Chanh, the main character, worked in the Vietnam countryside, specifically in the minefields. Unfortunately, this is where he saw his grandma’s passing due to a mine explosion. After that accident, he left everything behind and moved to Hanoi. Now he works at a factory, but his daily routine still remains the same: wake up and go to work. Then one day, everything changes. You must check out the story behind Chanh.
