Beginning his music education at the age of 10, filous taught himself to play the bass, guitar and piano before moving on to the harmonica, accordion, didgeridoo and many more—learned entirely from YouTube tutorials. At age 16 he created the moniker filous, meaning “rascal” in French, to release his remixes online. Breaking the mold of the traditional electronic artist, with the exception of the kick drum every instrument heard on the Dawn EP was played and recorded acoustically by filous himself.
