Just shy of 18, French DJ and producer Petit Biscuit is a teenager making some of the biggest waves of any dance music artist this year. Still in his teens, he’s nothing less than a bonafide, precocious superstar in the making.
Picking up the cello at age 5 and going to music school, Petit Biscuit’s first EP would come at the age of only 15 with “Sunset Lover”.
Petit Biscuit’s new track “Waterfall” featuring Panama, instantly conjures similar tropes of what brought the young star such massive global cult fame: warm, progressive chord structures and colourful, polished mixing flanked by electronic touches and furtive vocals that both chills and rouses.

The first release from Petit Biscuit’s forthcoming debut album “Presence” – confirmed for release on November 10, his 18th birthday – was mastered by legendary engineer Chab (Daft Punk, Air, Sebastien Tellier) in a careful nod to the forefathers of French dance music. Recorded over the course of the past year, Petit Biscuit, a.k.a. Mehdi Benjelloun wrote, produced and mixed “Presence”, finding time between high school exams and sold-out tours across the U.S., Europe and beyond. The album includes contributions from Lido, Bipolar Sunshine and the aforementioned Panama and looks set to cement the French teenager’s huge status as one of the most exciting young talents in the game right now.
