WHO: Mehdi Benjelloun (Petit Biscuit)
WHERE: Rouen, France
GENRE: Tropical House
TOP SONGS: “Sunset Lover” and “Problems”
Think of a sunset, a hot shower, a cloudy fall night, a hug from your love; THAT’S Petit Biscuit. All the feels, all the love, all the coziness, and all the beauty in the world, crushed up into a musical creation you’ll never forget.
His latest singles, “Suffer” and “Safe” bring more of a pop/EDM sound to his core house elements. Singer/songwriter Skott is featured on “Suffer” singing about the joy and happiness in being alone; “I’m hanging on my own, my own, I’m going out for dinner, having whiskey on my own, I’m hanging out alone, alone.” Electric laser beams and sirens pierce through the lyrics on this track giving the melody an extra boost.
Biscuit shed some light on the making of this song; “One of my initial recordings made it into the track, that siren sounding shout at the beginning. That’s in part why it’s called ‘Suffer’, composing it helped me get over some painful moments.”
Listen for yourself:
In honor of the fall of Pete & Ari…
Although this film is riddled with insanely beautiful melodies, hooks, and duets, there are a couple songs that really hit me the most. I may be biased since I’m an OG little monster at heart (where my Gaga fans at?)
We can all agree Lady Gaga is one of the best vocalists of our generation, not only proving her vocal chops but her acting skills are superb beyond belief. Truly born a star. While B Coop shocked us all by embodying the cliche drunk country singer we’ve all seen before. The country-rock theme bouncing out of him seemed natural and real. It felt as though this music wasn’t compiled for a movie soundtrack but instead already existed. I think that means a job well done…
