Petit Biscuit’s releases the music video for Problems, featuring Lido. Directed by Tony Datis (Thom Yorke, Katy Perry, Skrillex), the Paris-shot video stars Lido and Petit Biscuit himself, the acting debut from the breakout French artist. Petit Biscuit’s debut album, Presence, was released in November to widespread critical praise, and here in Australia was the final Triple J Feature Album for 2017.
Check out the visuals below.
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. The album was mastered by legendary engineer Chab (Daft Punk, Air, Sebastien Tellier) in a nod to the forefathers of French dance music.
Presence 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.
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.
