Presence, which includes singles “Problems” featuring Lido and “Waterfall” featuring Panama, has charted worldwide and continues to receive extensive acclaim:


“It’s a 14-track collection of smooth, chilled out house perfect for falling in love or nursing introspective moments into brilliance. It’s emotive and cinematically intimate, warmed to the bones with soft string melodies and cozy atmospheres... Expect to see big things from this name in the years to come.” —Billboard

“The universe may be endless but the atmospheric hues and tones of Petit Biscuit’s meandrous music is a genial companion for however far your exploration goes.” —Associated Press

“The French artist makes his debut with this spectacular full-length album that feels like it was born on the dance floor.”—MTV

“Petit Biscuit’s strength lies in his future which at this point seems limitless.”—YourEDM

“We’ve been patiently waiting for break-out French artist Petit Biscuit’s debut album for a while now, and we look forward to it dropping in November for his 18th birthday.”—KCRW


A classically trained musician from a young age, Petit Biscuit—a.k.a. Mehdi Benjelloun—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.
