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.”
